Sheila, of Book Journey, mentioned a while ago that she was going to tackle reading Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre." Well, she was more like moaning about starting to read "Jane Eyre" - :) So I thought, well, I've never read it - I'll read along with her - kinda like a team effort to encourage each other along.
So Sheila has dubbed it - The Jane Eyre Project! The plan is to read at least 10 pages a day and report back once a week on our progress.
So I bustled down to the bookstore and, lo and behold, found a used copy of "Jane," in great condition, and is actually the English Puffin edition. So I plunked my $2.50 down and began off on the great "Jane" adventure!
This is what my book cover looks like!
I am on page 215 out of 643 pages.
I've gotten Jane through childhood and out of that horrible Lowood School and she is now at Thornfield, Rochester's home, working as a governess for Adele. So far so good. It's moving along faster than I thought it would, and if you can get through all the impossibly huge words (I mean, come on ... what 10 year old talks like that???) it's not too bad a read.
There have been so many editions of "Jane Eyre" released since it's debut in 1847, and some of the covers of these books are just gorgeous! So I thought - why not feature a few different covers each week! Here are two that I've found perusing the ol' internet!
I love the roses on this cover!!!
This is the beautiful cloth-bound version from Penguin Books! It's just lovely!
Ok, so check back next week and see how far I've gotten!
