A read-along and a course, both starting next Monday, September 22:
The 2014 Jane Eyre Read-Along
is brought to you by the blogs A Night's Dream of Books & Babbling Books!

When Maria of A Night's Dream of Books and myself began to discuss doing a read - along the first question that came to mind was what book to choose.  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte became the apparent choice very early on. Maria and I have been discussing it lately and it is one of her favorites. Thus, this will be reread for her. For my part I have wanted to read this novel for a long time.
We have a schedule planned that will allow ourselves as well as other participants to engage in what I expect to be lively and stimulating posts and discussions. 
Details here.
