Jane Eyre Update (Part 1)

I thought it might be fun to provide a progress ticker for my Jane Eyre in a Week challenge (I couldn't resist going with a St. Paddy's Day theme!).  I didn't get the jump start that I wanted this weekend so I'm already a little behind, but nevertheless it is a lovely novel and I'm greatly enjoying it so far!  I'm just past the first ten chapters which chronicle Jane's early life with the Reeds and at the orphanage.  Brontë is a master at emotional writing and right from the start it's easy to get drawn into Jane's story.  I'm hooked already and since Mr. Rochester has been introduced - in name only - I'm plenty eager to keep reading!


Thanks for all the wonderful encouragement on my previous post!  It's great to know that there are others out there who have not (yet) read Jane Eyre and equally delightful to hear from so many who highly recommend the book!

    I am ashamed to say that I read Jane Eyre but remember NOTHING about the book. It is so bad that I don't even think it counts. I'll have to add it to my list.
