Tackling Tolstoy – P&P Style

12 Oct

There’s a new movie version of Anna Karenina coming out in November. (Starring, everyone say it with me: Kiera Knightly. Does she like wearing corsets?? What happened to the comfortable gym shorts in Bend it Like Beckham??? Anyway.)

This has sparked angst-filled conversations about how we all really should have read this monstrously long novel ages ago. But. It’s monstrously long.

Still, none of us could live with ourselves if we saw the movie and didn’t read the book.

So, here’s the (totally doable) plan:

Week 1: Oct 8-14
Part 1: 116 pages
Part 2: 120 pages
Total pages = 236
Week 2: Oct 15-21
Part 3: 116 pages
Part 4: 84 pages
Total pages = 200
Week 3: Oct 22-28
Part 5: 114 pages
Part 6: 120 pages
Total pages: 234
Week 4: Oct 29-Nov 4
Part 7: 98 pages
Part 8: 50 pages
Total pages: 148
Week 5: Nov 5-15

Leeway because HA we are no longer in college and have jobs and lives and… ok, mostly just jobs.

Movie Release: Nov 16 (Limited)

Stay tuned for our Week 1 recap coming to a blog near you. (Eventually.) ((Maybe.)) (((Most probably not in a timely manner. This book is LONG.)))
