The Count of Monte Cristo Read-a-long
You all don't know how excited I am that the girls over at The Estella Society are doing The Count of Monte Cristo Read-a-long! This is one of my all-time favorite books. I've read it multiple times, made countless family members read it, and collect copies of it. Yeah. Obsessed much? BUT -- it's been quite a few years and I haven't read it since I started blogging. So of course I am joining in. I realize that being a mom and wife and all that goes into life I have limited time to read such a chunkster as well as my other books. So I downloaded the audio book and am already on Chapter 7 -- whoohoo!
Just for fun, here's my stack of copies I own:
For some reason I can't find my original copy I got in high school - nothing special but it's irking me I can't find it. I might have loaned it out:
And the end paper of another old beat up copy:
I especially like finding old or unusual copies. Although if anyone wants to get me this Barnes & Noble lovely I wouldn't stop you :)
new book about the real man behind the fictional story, Alexander Dumas' father:
Ever thought about reading this awesome classic? Read it and want to read it again? Join in!
