READ ALONG - The "Atlas Shrugged" Read Along [Book Chatter]

Tina at www.Bookchatter.net has created an online Read Along for several people to join in reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. The time period is July 1 through Aug 15, which seems doable even for such a thick book. Once I read about it, I knew I had to join in too!

I've never read anything by Rand before, but their works are definitely on my "To Read" list. Being supported by others makes me really want to start tomorrow and get this book done! Though I've read suggestions that people should start with "Anthem" then "The Fountainhead", it seems it's a subjective choice, not really that important. So I shall go forth and do my best!

I'm a little worried that I may not keep up, or maybe I won't 'get' the important themes and all, but that's the big attraction of this being a Read Along. There'll be other people in the process of reading the same book in generally the same time frame, so who better to bounce ideas and questions with? I apologize for being a bit last minute, but I hope someone else might join us in this adventure!

  1. Hazel, thanks so much for taking the plunge with me! I've read Anthem and The Fountainhead but long ago. I don't think reading them is necessary to read Atlas but I think a lot of people recommend it because the books are often controversial and maybe it's better to take them in little bits. Not sure but I am jumping into this one cold because I really don't remember much of the others. There is also an Atlas Shrugged movie which I noticed the other day. Maybe I will watch the movie after.

    1. I'm very happy you organized it, otherwise I don't think I'd ever get around to when my phone is full of free random novels I keep downloading, heh. Oh yeah, I remember seeing it on netflix once, I hope it's still there so I can put it in my queue!

      Thank you for linking to my post on your twitter :D
