    Thanks for putting this together. Do I need to sign up somewhere?

    I am so, so, so excited to see Little Women and Jane Eyre on this list!! I won’t be able to read along on the titles this year, because I’m committed to so many other projects oin 2012. However, I am still interested in this topic and am prescribed to both the posts and te comments, so I’ll be following along on all discussions. I also plan to re-read Little Women this year, though not in July.

    Anyway, I’m still with you, even though it isn’t as an active participant. Thanks for hosting this!! Cheers!

    Oh for goodness sake – ha! I couldn’t see what I was typing because the comment box was filled with text for some reason. Please ignore my typos! And obviously, I meant “subscribed,” not “prescribed.” 😆

    This is wonderful. I’ve been meaning to be more intentional in my reading and this seems like a great way to start. I think I’m going to hop on board for March.

    You should consider adding With Her In Ourland, the sequel to Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Both novels are now available at Feedbooks for free downloading.
