Here we are, on day 17 and the end of week 3 of Austen August- I hope you are all still enjoying the read-a-long. How is your progress going so far? Are you happy or struggling with it? I’m finding I’m getting a little bit frustrated myself in a while, just with moderating the board. It’s taking me a lot of time and energy to actually sit down and write the chapter summaries, when it would be so much quicker to just read it. And most of the time only one or two people are interacting on the boards… To those who’ve moderated read-a-thons, how much interaction to you expect or find you get from participants in these things? I feel like despite the great number of members in the group, I was too optimistic at how much activity would actually take place on the boards…
Anyway, back onto the positive: currently my page total for Austen August stands at exactly 1000 pages, and once I have done today’s chapters, it will stand at 1015 pages, which I am happy with.
Here is an updated list of the links to the chapter summaries posted so far on the group (which is public and available for all to post to!)
