After 5 years of daily podcasting we’ve finished reading Hemingway’s list. Well done us.
War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy (First read-through, 2018)
The first book we tackled on "The Hemingway List" (before it was even called "The Hemingway List"), was War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy. This project started from a reddit post, where user Ditmartian spoke about his New Year's Resolution to read War & Peace one chapter per day for an entire year. (It works perfectly, because War & Peace happens to have 365 chapters - one for every day of the year.)
Some other Redditors liked the sound of this, and so they signed up to do the same - and soon, a subreddit was created, with a community of 2000 people, all reading War & Peace one chapter per day in 2018.
I recognised this was an awesome thing happening, and wanted to jump on board. Then, getting perhaps a little over-excited, announced that I would turn the experience into a podcast. In the first ever episode (the Introduction Episode) you can hear for yourself that I am giddy with excitement.
Thus began my career as a daily podcaster.
If you're up for a year-long challenge (or quicker, if you binge-listen), below is the full list of episodes with the corresponding day of the year.
