Re-Reading Les Misérables

Thoughts and commentary on Victor Hugo’s masterpiece.


I’m retiring the @ReadingLesMis Twitter account. It’s been a long run, but social media has changed dramatically since 2013. It’s been 5 years since my last read-through, and even if I pick it up again, I don’t anticipate doing the play-by-play posting I used to. And even if I did, Twitter’s new ownership has been…haphazard at best, so I don’t think that would be the place for it.

The blog isn’t going away. I plan on reviewing the first volume of the manga soon. You can follow the blog’s feed if you use Feedly or NetNewsWire or another feed reader.

I’m also still on the Fediverse at (powered by GoToSocial, which is interoperable with Mastodon), on Bookwyrm at, and reviewing other books here on my website.

And of course my main blog (which this project spun out of!) is still going.
