#Bloomsday

Pickpick

✅ Completed! June 16 is the day on which Ulysses is set & I did manage to read it between February 2 (date of publication & Joyce‘s birthday) & today along with the Friends of Shakespeare & Co centenary read! I won‘t say I completely enjoyed it, but I believe it is well worth the effort of reading. I found all the writing styles fascinating, was amazed by the allusions, and truly enjoyed parts of it. Happy #Bloomsday!

Daisey @JazzFeathers Thanks! I have Bible School prep this week, but hopefully after that I‘ll actually be able to get back to reading a few of Tolkien‘s letters again! 2mo
JazzFeathers @Daisey I'm catching up at the moment. Just read the famous letter to Woldham yesterday night, the one where Tolkien told about the Silmarillion. Alwayscan emotion 💚 2mo

TrishB I thought you were going to say you were reading it 😁 2y
rabbitprincess Ooh the calendar colour coordinates with the book! (edited) 2y
Kimberlone Lol! The only Joyce ever been able to get into is Dubliners, which I do think is very beautiful, but is also his least experimental book. 2y

AvidReader25 I finally read it the other year and it was as crazy as I always expected. 😂 2y
BarbaraBB I read it. It‘s hard working and not very rewarding in the end - in my opinion 😫 2y

Happy #bloomsday all. RTE are doing a 30hour reading to celebrate but if that's a bit too much, how about just Molly Bloom's soliloquy to whet the appetite? https://youtu.be/ii_aZ6djNkM.

I missed #Bloomsday because I was on the road. So today I sat down with some #tea and my editions of this favorite of mine...The ineluctable modality of the visible: at least that if no more,

jveezer Are you still on your odyssey of reading Ulysses? Are you planning to tackle Finnegans Wake next? If so, there is an interesting reading group starting next week to read one page of the Wake a week. Check out Blotty Words on Facebook. I‘m going for it as a reread. 4y
Faibka @jveezer thanks! I did finish Ulysses last year and was thinking of tackling Finnegans Wake later in the year. I would love to join, I‘ll check it out. Thanks again for letting me know! :) 4y
