Don Quixote infinite winter reading schedule

And here’s the reading list for the third proposed book for this year’s Infinite Winter event: Miguel De Cervantes’s Don Quixote.  Amanda recommended I listen to the audiobook a couple months ago, but that, it turns out, was just on a lark.  She’s never read the before, and we’re both not sure why she recommended it.  But the more I think about it, the more I like the idea.  This, it seems to me, is one of those super long books that a lot of people know about but one they’ve never read.  Perfect for Infinite Winter.

Here’s a proposed reading schedule, complete with chapter numbers, I put together based on Edith Grossman’s translation:

    I read this one over a summer in college (I think), right around the same time I read The Count of Monte Cristo. In fact, I may have only read the latter…I don’t remember Don Quixote well enough to say no to reading it (again?).
