Bleak House Fridays – Week Ten

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter LI. With this week’s reading I couldn’t believe I read about two deaths and one birth.  Seems like a very interesting combination to me. The first thing I wanted to discuss with this week’s reading is my favorite whipping boy Richard.  What […]

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XLV.  With this week’s reading, I’m going to concentrate my thoughts on two particular items in the story line that really stood out to me.  One deals with Lady Dedlock and Mr. Tulkinghorn and the second deals with Mr. Jarndyce and Esther. […]

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XXXIX.  This week’s reading was full of revelations, especially as it deals with Lady Dedlock and Esther.  More on that in a bit though.

Bleak House Fridays – Week Seven

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XXXIV.  I truly believe that this week’s reading was probably one of the easiest and smoothest chapters of reading of the book.  There just seemed to be less confusion than in previous weeks, and things seem to be coming together a bit […]

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Sunday all!  It’s a beautiful day here in Northern Virginia, and He has risen!  This week has been a slow reading week for me to begin the month of April.  I only managed to complete my weekly reading for the Bleak House read-along and managed to make my weekly post the other day. This […]

Bleak House Fridays – Week Six

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XXX.  I found this week’s reading to be particularly interesting because it seemed like finally things were starting to become a bit more clear, and there were a couple of a-ha moments. To begin with, I’m really starting to see Mr. Tulkinghorn […]

Bleak House Fridays – Week 5

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XXIV.  Compared with last week’s reading, this week, the pace seemed to slow down a bit, but there were some things that caught my attention this week regardless. To begin with, I can’t get too far into my thoughts this week without […]

Bleak House Fridays Week 4

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XIX.  This week’s reading was significantly better than last week’s, as I didn’t feel like I was very much in the hate portion of my love-hate relationship with Dickens.  This morning, there are a couple of things about this week’s reading that […]

Bleak House Fridays – Week 3

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter XIV.  Can I just say that this week’s reading was pretty slow and dry for me?  It wasn’t painful, but it was pretty close to it.  This week’s reading clearly demonstrated to me why I have this love-hate relationship with […]

Bleak House Fridays – Week 2

This week, for the Bleak House read-along hosted by Wallace at Unputdownables, I read until Chapter X.  I think the biggest accomplishment for me with this week’s reading is that I kept up with it.  I think I’m starting to get over thinking that I might not be able to finish Bleak House.  I feel that’s a […]
