Congrats on finishing Moby Dick! That is awesome. That one has always been on my TBR. I just can't get the motivation to read it.
I was in the same boat (ha ha) until I watched the movie, Into the Sea. That motivated me to start, and I just read 2% a day alongside easier reading. I often use that approach when I have a brick of a book. This Readathon gave me the motivation to dig in and finish it up early.
That's fantastic! Getting to the end of a classic always feels more of an achievement to me than finishing just another book 😁 is that strange 😞
Not strange at all! I feel the same way. :-)
