The Shakespeare Project

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I don't have much in the way of literary training. I write a book blog because I read a lot of books and recommend a lot of books to a lot of people. I dabble in almost every genre, and heavily in the classics. 

However, I feel like to really be considered a connoisseur of the English language, one has to read everything available by William Shakespeare. 

So that is my quest -- read the complete works of Shakespeare by... the time I die. 

I toyed with reading them all in some type of organized fashion, but I think that would burn me out too quickly, so I'm just going to do it haphazardly. As you can tell, this project isn't especially organized. But it should be fun. :)


  1. Hey, we have the same goal~ I have just challenged myself to read all works of Shakespeare. Here's my post

    That's a nice thing to get to know the Bard, eh? ;)

    Good luck~

  2. Coooool. I'd love to do this, somehow, someway. This year's goal is pretty small - read TWO Shakespeare plays - but I figure every little step helps! I'll probably do some watching of TV and movie adaptations too, and see which stage versions I can get on Digital Theatre. Top of the list is David Tennant and Catherine Tate's Much Ado... Good luck! :)

  3. Love this idea! I've only 2 shakespeare books. I like reading the book and then watching a movie or a play.
