#LesMisReadalong on Twitter: Week 1

The Bishop of Digne

We’ve almost finished the first week of the Les Misérables Chapter-a-Day Read-along, and the Twitter conversation about the opening few chapters has been amazing. Readers are using the hashtag #LesMisReadalong to chronicle their reading experience, share their knowledge, and support each other in their literary journey. But if you don’t have a Twitter account, not to worry. This post is a sampling of some of the tweets from this past week that caught my attention. And I’ll have a new read-along post on Monday that will feature that humble, generous clergyman, the Bishop of Digne.

If you’ve not signed up for the Les Misérables Chapter-a-Day Read-along, it’s definitely not too late. We’re only getting started! You don’t have to have a Twitter account or a blog, you only need an unabridged copy of Les Misérables. To join, visit the sign-up page and leave a comment (or a link if you have your own blog), download the reading schedule, and catch up to us when you can.

And now, a highlight of this week’s Les Mis tweets:

    I love to see what parts of the book make an impression on individual readers.
    It gives a insight into the impact the book has on people. I’m surprised in that this book is written in a more ‘friendly’ tone than Zola’s books. Each day I’m eager to read some wonderful quote that I can take with me all day. Zola was more ‘gloomy’ looking for the cracks in characters psyche. BIG thanks to Nick @nsenger for hosting and guiding us throughout the book!
