Read Ulysses With Us! (#ulyssesRAL2017)


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.

Hosted By:

Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit and myself, Ti  at Book Chatter.

Twitter Hashtag:

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.

Reading Breakdown:

Part 1 Discussion on Feb. 10
Part 2 Discussion on March 10 (largest section)
Part 3 Discussion on March 17

Artist: Abigail Larson
Artist: Abigail Larson

This is an event that I look forward to every year. There are different levels of commitment but basically, you agree to read or watch content that falls into any of these categories:

Dark Fantasy

The event was created by Carl over at Stainless Steel Droppings and it’s in its eleventh year. That’s how popular it is.

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XI takes place from September 1st, 2016 through October 31st, 2016.

Peril the Second

I’ve chosen the Peril the Second option where you agree to read two books. Here is what I hope to read but I keep changing my mind:

Peril the Screen

I’ve also chosen Peril on the Screen which applies to movies/TV shows!! My favorite part of this event. Here is what I hope to watch:

  • Halloween I & II
  • The Shining
  • IT (Doesn’t the new movie come out soon? (Update: 9/2017!)
  • The Legend of Hell House
  • Bates Motel (DVR is overflowing)
  • American Horror Story – Hotel (DVR again)

The only other requirement is that you share the fun with others. Would you like to join us?
