Evelina | AvalinahsBooks (avalinahsbooks) | 89 comments Oh wow! You guys are reading Middlemarch! I MUST join. I'm glad it's 15th though, cause it seems ALL my groups have decided to read important books all at once, haha.


Hilary (agapoyesoun) | 188 comments I really want to join but I'm afraid that I'm overloaded already. This would be a reread but I've forgotten most of it. I'm unsure.

This will definitely be an audio for me. It's a reread for me too this time around.

Just joined The Victorians here and after much flip-flopping (should I or shouldn't I?) decided to give Middlemarch a try. This will be all new for me--new book and new author. Deep breath---jump!!!

Glad you jumped. We see the parachute and will welcome you when you safely and softly land.

Many thanks! Never one to do things by halves, I just downloaded all of her novels from Amazon. What did I do before Kindle?!

Did you get the Delphi bundle?

Glad you chose to jump. It's a book and an author that anybody interested in the Victorian period really should know. A challenging book, but well worth it.

Yup! I generally choose Delphi when I get the classics. Thanks!
