Heather and I decided to read Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South after we did some cavorting over on Girlebooks.com (Note: We'll be reading the Girlebooks edition of the e-book for this readalong!). Neither of us have ever read Gaskell, and according to the Twitter recs, North and South is THE place to start!!!
And another fun thing: we have a third ghostly host. My friend Shannon from work is jonesing to read some Gaskell, so she'll be joining us. If I can talk her into it, I'll guest-host some of her commentary here.
THEN Melissa from Avid Reader's Musings expressed interest. SO we have ourselves a readalong. Huzzah!
You'll have to excuse us, but we're all really excited, so we're not wasting much time. Find the schedule below. Dates represent the days we will post/discuss the indicated chapters. I'll provide a Mr. Linky here so anyone who wants to participate can share their posts. I'm too lazy to add a Mr. Linky right now, so just state your intent in the comments area.
- Discussion 1: August 6th - Chapters 1-14
- Discussion 2: August 13th - Chapters 15-27
- Discussion 3: August 20th - Chapters 28-39
- Discussion 4: August 27th - Chapters 40-52
