Shakespeare in July

Okay, so, confession time.  I have only read one Shakespearean play ever.  I read Julius Ceasar a couple years ago for a class, and since then have just never gotten around to picking another one up.  Sad, I know.  Well seeing how pathetic that was, and also wanting to remedy that, I decided to do a thing I've coined #ShakespeareinJuly.  It's kind of a riff on Shakespeare in the park (I am totally clueless on that reference other than Ironman's line in Avengers).  I know, I know, I'm pathetic.  Also, I know this is early, but hey.  Whatever.

Anyway, as the name suggests, I plan to read some Shakespeare in July.  I've decided to set my goal for four plays, but we'll see if I choose to be overzealous and read more than that.  On my list so far are Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, and Macbeth, and I am very open to suggestions for my fourth pick.  I'm really excited about this, and if you, like me, want to read more Shakespeare, you can do it along with me!  If you do, use the hashtag #ShakespeareinJuly and tweet me!  I will be sharing my progress and thoughts on Twitter as I read next month! Thanks for reading!  xo, Ella
