Just for fun: Moby Dick reading schedule

I had so much fun putting together those reading lists last week, I thought I’d put one together for Moby Dick, too.  Broken down to a winter-long reading schedule, it’s a very digestible 25-page average each reading period.  Which is super easy in case anybody named Canelli wants to try reading Moby Dick at the same time as our other Infinite Winter reading.

God, this book is awesome.  Canelli, why haven’t you read it already?  My 14-year-old nephew read this thing in less than a month when he visited this past summer!  How can you call yourself an American and not have read this book!?

    If I’m still unemployed come late December, we’re doing ALL the books.
