Once again I offer, to anyone interested, a daily reading plan of my own devising that will get you through all of Shakespeare's works in a year. It can be done in about a half hour (or less) per day. Newly updated for 2017, the plan takes you through plays on weekdays, and sonnets and other poems on weekends. “Is not the leaf turn'd down where I left reading?” asked Brutus. With this plan handy, you won't lose your place.
