Hello everyone. For the last four months, Bryna and I have been reading the Count of Monte Cristo to each other. Each night, we curl up and read a chapter aloud, alternating off. Last night, we finished “Volume One” and are on to “Volume Two”. Yes, it took us four months to get halfway through, but it is worth it. We love it. We stumble over the French together, and get tongue-tied on the Italian. We help each other remember who is who, for after the first quarter, several new characters are introduced. We theorize, we note on the little clues during the day and in the evenings we get to enjoy each others voices. I cannot recommend this enough. It has been a pure joy. The book is wonderful, and the act of reading together has brought Bryna and I even closer.
