"Middlemarch" and me

800px-Middlemarch_1

I finally bit the bullet and began George Eliot's novel, revered and praised by so many of the greatest writers in the world since its 1871 publication.

After four days and many hours of highly focused reading, I'm on page 81.

I can't read it for more than an hour or two at a time without my brain shutting down from overwork.

Hard going, but worth it.

The book being 838 pages long, at my current pace I'll finish it sometime in September.

You can too!

I just finished Middlemarch last night. I loved it. Surprisingly there are some very funny lines in it.
