Moby Dick

I am currently reading Moby Dick. I am following the reading plan by this site: http://www.mobydickbigread.com

The plan is to read 135 chapters of Moby Dick in 135 days. Each day, the site posts a chapter read by a celebrity, accompanied by an artwork based on the book.  I have only listened to Chapter 1: Loomings read by Tilda Swinton and she did a hell of a good job. But I religiously read a chapter a day. I started on the 15th, so it’s been a week.

The artwork for Loomings is by Marcus Harvey.

This is my first time to read Moby Dick.

And oh, I read three to five books at any given time, so it’s not just Moby Dick I’m reading now. But because this is the first time I am following a reading plan (except for the various Bible plans I try to tackle but could never see through), I am giving Moby Dick a very special mention.
