David Copperfield Reading Schedule

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to have been away for so long. Things have been super hectic here at book club HQ. ANYWAY, here is the long-promised reading schedule for DAVID COPPERFIELD, which we sort of started earlier this month:

3/2-3/9: Chapters 1-7

3/10 -3/16: Chapters 8-15

3/17 - 3/23: Chapters 16-23

3/24 - 3/30: Chapters 24-32 (MIDWAY)

3/31 - 4/6: Chapters 33-41

4/7 - 4/13: Chapters 42 - 50

4/14 - 4/20: Chapters 51- 57

4/21 - 4/30: Chapter 58-END; catch-up reading period

I'm not going to lie. It's a long book, and on this schedule, we'll be reading a bit over a hundred pages every week. But Dickens reads quickly, as many of you will recall from our BLEAK HOUSE read last year.

I'll be reading the Penguin Classics edition pictured above. I think it's a 1986 reprint. But citations should be easy to follow, given the chapter numbering.

Spread the word to your friends. As always, the more the merrier.
