So here we go. Week 1 of our July Read-a-long. I hope you are all enjoying this book by Anna Funder. Firstly, let me say this is my first week of this, so please forgive me if you believed I have missed key details.

For me, it’s different (again) to what I normally read, and time constraints are not helping!, but I have found myself finding lines and paragraphs that blow me away. More of this in a bit.

The style of Funder’s writing is eloquent and at times sad and beautiful in equal measure. One of those books that you really do not want to rush. As if the age of Ruth somehow influences the speed the book can be read at! For here on in, there may be

Hi everybody!  Welcome to the All That I Am Read-A-Long.

Book Cover:  All That I Am

I have now received my copy of the books and can now update the weekly targets for the book in both physical and ebook formats.

Week 1 (13/7): Page 1 – Page 124 or to location 1958 of 5680 (34%)

Week 2 (20/7): Page 125 – Page 240 or to location 3737 of 5680 (66%)

Week 3 (27/7): Page 241 – Page 363 or to location end of Book

Could you all please confirm if you have the book.  For the ebook reviewers, could you confirm the targets for the weeks and whether these make sense.

Personally, I cannot wait to get into this.  It has a really interesting story and is very well-written with some absolutely stand out lines already.

Hi everybody!  Welcome to the All That I Am Read-A-Long.

Book Cover:  All That I Am

I am hoping you have all got your copies of All That I am by Anna Funder but if you haven’t don’t worry too much.  Just join us when you are ready or leave comment on the posts as they go up.  I am posting a schedule, which looks like this:

Week 1 (13/7): Part 1

Week 2 (20/7): Part 2

Week 3 (27/7): Part 3

When I get my physical copy I will update the breakdown of the book for their weeks.  I have a rudimentary set for now.  Bear with me.  I will also be supplying an ebook breakdown using locations or some such!

I will be posting up the discussions on 13th, 20th and 27th of July.  Using Fridays originated with the My Hundred Lovers Read-a-long and worked well, so I decided to stick to Fridays.  The logic being that it would be good to give people the weekend to come and read the posts and comment as I know everyone is busy and has plenty of other commitments.

Hope you all enjoy the book and see you back here on the 13th of July for our first part discussion.  Thanks Bree Testa (1girl2manybooks) for a majority of these words.
