I’ve been saying this for years, but this Christmas, I will be reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I have never read it in its entirety (though I have seen the movie several times), and it’s been on my TBR since my TBR has existed (in all of its forms). I now own three copies – though I’m planning on donating one of them – including a beautiful vintage edition. It needs to happen. I have no excuse.
Because this is such a holiday classic, I decided to sponsor a readalong for everyone who would like to read Little Women with me this year. It’s going to be super low-key, but it will be cool to have people to talk about it with as we read.
You can read it in any format you wish – there are plenty of editions out there. If you don’t already have a copy, you can get it free on iBooks, Kindle, or the Kindle and Nook apps. If you don’t have an e-reader (and prefer not to read on your phone), you can download it as a pdf here.
The readalong will run from December 1 to December 31, though you can finish it as early (or late) as you want. My tentative schedule is as follows:
December 3 – Read up to Chapter 4
December 10 – Read up to Chapter 15
December 17 – Read up to Chapter 28
December 24 – Read up to Chapter 37
December 31 – Finish book
This works out to approximately 120 pages a week, which hopefully is achievable for everyone.
Let me know if you’d like to participate, and tag your posts with the hashtag #AoaBLittleWomen so I can check them out. I will be using the hashtag to host discussions, etc., so be sure to keep an eye on it as well. Please share with anyone you think might want do join in.
I’m looking forward to finally reading this book with you!
P.S. If you’re a fellow blogger or bookstagrammer and would like to co-host the readalong, send me a message. Thanks!
