Long ago in a land far away, I tried to read Ulysses and gave up quickly but the book had nothing to do with it. It was a timing thing. I had too much going on and just wasn’t in the right mood. I’ve been meaning to get back to it.
When I mentioned this on Twitter or perhaps it was in response to a blog comment, Serena suggested we read it together. We thought maybe there’d be a few of you who might want to join us.
Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit and myself, Ti at Book Chatter.
We will use Twitter to discuss this book throughout the read along by using the hashtag #ulyssesRAL2017. If you ever want to see what any of us are saying, just search for that hashtag.

This is truly an amazing undertaking.
“Truly amazing” a really nice way of calling me crazy. I know. I am losing it. Maybe I will love it??
So, Shaina from Shaina Reads mentioned a Serial Reader App for reading classics in small daily pieces. Ulysses was on the list, so I may have downloaded the app and signed up to read that. We are talking 10 minutes a day, and there are 109 “days”, so I will be reading it for a while. The important thing here is that you inspired me to read it. Or at least attempt to read it.
Is Serial Reader the name of the app? I’m impressed that you are giving it a go, considering your initial reaction to it! LOL.
It is the name of the app. Well, I feel like this is one of those books every bibliophile should try at least once. I’m not making any promises to finish it, but I figure I can do 10 minutes a day.
That’s an excellent way to get through a big book like that. Maybe you’ll even read more than ten minutes!
You have to know I am laughing out loud at this statement, right? Although, I won’t rule it out!
This app sounds fantastic! Hey if we find Ulysses too much to slog through one part at a time, we should all sign up for the app and read 10 minutes a day. LOL
I really really want to do this but am afraid I’m just doing too much. And I’m on a roll with this TOB thing. I can’t stop
It is a major deal. I guess. Ha.
Wowwww, good for y’all! Yay for y’all, you are the heroes of blogging! Good luck with your vast undertaking!!
There is a book, published by the O’Brian Press in Dublin, entitled DUBLIN BAY, from Killiney to Howth, by Brian Lalor. I got it through Amazon. It is filled with beautiful drawings of all the scenes around Dublin Bay, including “the gloomy domed living room,” (page 12 of Ullysses) and the round gunrest on the roof. Reading the entire book opens up new vistas in understanding where the scenes take place. Just a suggestion.
