Ulysses Readalong - Jousting with Joyce

For almost 13 months now Ulysses has been staring forebodingly from one of our top bookshelves.  As you can see, it’s even tried to intimidate some of the surrounding novels.  We already lost a handsome edition of Rebecca, because it ventured too close... 

Additionally, last week I tried to take this photo with an older camera, but all the film disintegrated upon trying to develop the picture.  Needless to say we’ve got problems (I mean about reading Ulysses, not about us personally, well...) and the only way we’re going to tackle this one is with a group of capable readers.  For this reason, it’s with considerable excitement that we’re joining the Ulysses Readalong hosted by Fizzy Thoughts. 

The fun starts Feb 1st and honestly, it will probably take that long for us to work up the courage.  Hopefully, you’ll sign up or at least follow the carnage left behind our progress over the next 2 months!


  1. Good luck with Joyce. And Ulysses....senior lit class is coming back to me now....the feeling is hazy but

    Have a great one!

  2. This is on my list, but after "War And Peace" this month I don't believe I'll have the heart to tackle Joyce in February!

  3. I can actually hear dramatic music in my head while I look at that picture. Good luck--I'm bracing myself already!

  4. Glad to have you along for the ride. Hope it's not too bumpy... :-D
