So one thing that you will quickly learn about me is that I love a challenge! I cannot promise that I will complete them all in the time that I am meant to but as I mostly use them as a way to chose my next book, stretch my habits or just to read along with other people, I don’t think it matters too much!
I have never seen the Les Misérables show and got abut 40 mins into the most recent film before turning it off. Following that, I wondered if I could like the book and when I saw it on Radio 4 Extra as a Drama over a few hours, I gave it a go… and loved it!
So with that in mind, I wanted to give this challenge a go. I found it whilst randomly looking for new and exciting reading challenges for 2018 and loved the idea of it – the chance to pace myself over the year as well as read it along with others seemed a great idea to me and so I immediately downloaded the reading schedule and bought the most recent translation of the book on my kindle .. and so am ready to get going!
I think that I will update my progress on a monthly basis – it may end up in my monthly roundup posts unless I decide something different!
I am really looking forward to seeing if I enjoy this and if it makes me want to give the film a second go .. and to see the stage show!
Have you ever read Les Misérables? What about reading a book a chapter a day for a whole year? Any tips?!
