Macbeth Readalong – Update


 Um, so, yes, I’ve had a nasty bit of real life the last week and have not had time to read Macbeth. At all.  I am embarassed, especially since it is my own read-along — unfortunately life is going to stay busy the next few weeks and while I do not want to give up on reading it I have to figure how to carve out time to read this play so I can say I can accomplish something I set out to do for once.

Then thanks to a random e-mail my answer came to me: I had forgotten about this service (and that I had signed up for it – though it is free and you can sign up anytime), but it sends you installments of books (mostly free, some have a fee) to your inbox at intervals you determine.  Macbeth is one of their offerings and — woo hoo — it is free, so I have set up to get the entire play (27 installments) sent by e-mail and I can read it that way –to me I will look productive since I’m just checking my e-mail, right 😉 ).

I’m working my way through the first 2 acts (you can immediately request the next installment if you like) to refamiliarize myself with what has happened, and tomorrow I will begin with Act 3 and receive a new installment each day until I’m finished.  I think I will go into November before it is done, but I will finish it!

    I am all too familiar with life getting in the way of reading. I hope you’re able to fit in Macbeth over the next few weeks, one email at a time (which sounds like a great way to do it!). Good luck!

    Shame on you, for not reading MacB! I got through the first act, finally, so I’m more ashamed than you, even. I need to watch a YouTube video or something, because I’m not at all motivated to read the book. It’s not… nice. I don’t understand much of it. 🙂

  3. I forgot about, too. Thanks for mentioning it. What a great plan–hope its working!
