I started reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin a few nights ago and have made it through chapter 5. Had it not been for Vikki’s Blah*Blah*Book*Blog, I might never have gotten around to reading it. I’d heard of the book, but never read it.
I’m also starting Silas Marner soon, as part of a reading group at Dave’s Garden. It’s a book club which will correspond via e-mail, I believe. We’re going to read a little at a time and discuss the book as we go, rather than finish and answer questions.
