Read-A-Long: Rebecca

Have you read Rebecca?

The classic by Daphne du Maurier? Yes, of course I’m sure most of you have.

Somehow, I never got around to reading Rebecca. This book has been on my to-read list most of my life. Sheila at Book Journey hasn’t read Rebecca either and will be reading it next month. We are all invited to join her in a Read-A-Long.

Although I don’t have time to read another book next month, I am able to squeeze in the audiobook version.
 
 

Rebecca by Daphne du MaurierThe Read-A-Long

The read-a-long is open to both first timers and re-reads.

On July 17 there will be a Party with Rebecca Party with a link-up for reviews, an online discussion and giveaways. Head over to Book Journey, add your name to the linky, and join the fun.

    Hi Leslie,

    I don’t think that I shall be joining in the readathon, but ‘Rebecca’ is one of my most favourite books of all time, and I try never to miss any film or television adaptations that come along.

    Audiobooks are definitely not my thing, but I hope that you enjoy listening along and enjoy the memories that this great story can evoke.

    Have a great weekend,

    Yvonne

      It’s not for everyone. I’ve found that audiobooks are an acquired taste. It took me a few tries before I could get through a book with any comprehension. Now it allows me to read, or more accurately “hear” a few more books a months.

      Me too. Like The Secret Garden, I just never got around to it. At least I’m not alone!

    You’ve never read Rebecca? I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it since I was a young teen. It’s long been on my list of “must have” books to be marooned on a desert island with. Along with Bernard Cornwell’s “Storm Child” and Carol Goodman’s “The Seduction of Water.” Though, hmmm….I’ve recently gotten into listening to audio books. I may have to give that format a try for Rebecca too!

      I borrowed a copy of the BBC Audio version. If it wasn’t for audio there are quite a few good books I would have missed due to lack of hours in the day, so I’m glad I discovered them. I’m not sure how I missed reading Rebecca, and there are a few other classics I haven’t read either, but I’m not telling which ones!
