Read Moby Dick This Summer
Inspired by "Infinite Summer," my project aims to get people to read Melville's classic this summer - and discuss it along the way in the message board.

Beginning July 1st, I'll be emailing a daily reading from "Moby Dick" to the opt-in list. By the end of September, members will have completed this epic American masterpiece, a little bit at a time. The site includes a discussion forum, which will hopefully become a destination for people who always knew they should read this book but could never quite motivate themselves to make it through it.

I got through the first 100 or so pages, but never got into it. I couldn't get settled into the story, but I've wanted to give it another go. Thanks for the support system!
