A Moveable Feast; Ernest Hemingway - Read-a-Long

(thanks for hosting)

In my efforts to read more classics in 2012, I've decided to participate in the February (month long) read a-long. It's a short book so you'll only be required to read about (8) pages a day.

Here is a little info about the read-a-long, but please go read the post for more information and to sign up.

Some Facts About the Read-a-Long:
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to join.
  • We will be reading the book in February (4 weeks), with the first discussion happening on Friday, February 3rd / the book is 210 pages (paperback, excluding introduction) so that’s roughly 8 pages a day.
  • Don’t be intimidated. We will be going at a slow pace and discussing the book throughout our reading. The discussions are quite fun, and make the reading process very enjoyable!
In case this one isn't right for you, here is the complete 2012 list for other Read-a-Longs.

2012 Schedule

Currently Reading! January 2012: Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald *
 March/ April/May 2012: Bleak House by Charles Dickens *
September/ October 2012: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte *


  1. Good luck Diane. Eight pages a day should be easy enough to fit in. Even I might be able to manage that. Lol.

  2. I'm so excited you're reading this one! I'm not a big fan of most of Hemingway's fiction, but I love this nonfiction account of his time as a penniless writer in Paris. Enjoy!

  3. This sounds like great fun. If I wasn't already committed to reading so many things in February I would join up. Maybe next time.

    Anxious to hear what you think of the book.

  4. I might have to think about this because this is a book that I have wanted to read for a very long time. Thanks for letting us know about the readalong!

  5. We haven'tt read his works for a while but it is a great idea!

  6. Enjoy the book and the readalong!

  7. I am planning to read this one in the next few months. Have fun.

  8. I think this is one that I want to join. I have been wanting to read this one because of so many bloggers loving it!! 8 pages is very doable!! I'm requesting the book right now!

  9. What a GREAT list of books! I have read A Moveable Feast - three times actually - but I have yet to read The Great Gatsby (and really want to after watching Midnight in Paris). I think I might be tempted to at least check out this read along....

  10. Sounds interesting. I'll be sure to check out your posts. Have a great week,and happy reading.

  11. A Moveable Feast is a book I've wanted to read. I've been holding off on The Paris Wife wanting to read this first.

    When you break it down to only eight pages a day it doesn't sound like a very big book. Not sure I'd have time for the discussions but I might follow along to get some insight from others as Hemingway was not always easy for me to understand.

  12. Just finished The Paris Wife and got this one in audio from the library. WOuld love to join - will sign up on the post. Thanks for hosting.
