Moby-Dick Marathon

27 Jul

Remember when I went on vacation here?Charles W Morgan

And got to do this?

The only thing that could have made that trip better was if I’d been at Mystic Seaport for the
annual Moby-Dick Marathon.  Can you imagine reading Melville’s masterpiece aboard a real whaling vessel?

It’s too back we can’t take a CCOM field trip to Connecticut.  Instead I’ll be checking in on July 31st-August 1st, watching live streaming video of the event with my book in hand.Moby-Dick Title Page

      Rats!
      I wonder how I would do reading Melville for 24 hrs straight. Hmmm

      Me too. Actually, I’m looking back fondly on lots of books that I whined about at the time.
