After discovering two of my blogging friends are participating in Melissa’s Bronte-Along, I stood up straight and paid closer attention. I was an English major in college, and I have wondered ever since then why we never read any Bronte or Austen books!
I have a couple Bronte books on my bookshelves, so what better time to dive in with the first read-along – Jane Eyre!
The members of the Bronte-along are going to read more after this one, including Wuthering Heights and The Tenent of Wildfell Hall.
We’re supposed to blog about how we’re going to participate in this read-along. For now, I’m going to read this book, and probably try to watch the movie. Some people are doing things like paintings, crocheting a shawl, and embroidering a line from the book. I would to make something crafty, but I don’t know enough about the book, the characters, or the author to figure out a creative project to contribute. I’m off to read and look for some inspiration in my dreams.
