WhatStarting on the 1st of March, we intend to read each of Shakespeare’s 38 plays in 38 days*.
We would love your company. You are warmly invited to join us in this reading challenge.
Even if you don’t have time for quite so much reading, feel free to invent your own Shakespeare challenge. Your moral support, Shakespeare knowledge or idle thoughts would be invaluable.
* Plus a bonus day for Edward III.

WhyI’ve always wanted to read all of Shakespeare’s plays. Somehow, I’ve managed to get through my life so far without having done so. Starting on the 1st of March, I intend to rectify this sorry state of affairs.
After participating in NaNoWriMo and ScriptFrenzy in 2009, I realised two things. First, I enjoy wild, crazy, nigh-impossible challenges. Second, working toward a goal alongside other people is a great source of motivation.
We’re not going for great scholarly insight or serious, critical readings. The point of this madcap adventure is to have fun and get through a first reading of the plays.
If you feel inclined to join us in reading an awful lot of Shakespeare awfully quickly, we’d love your company!
