Andi (from Estella’s Revenge, of course, my partner in all crimes) and I had decided to read North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell together, since we’ve been reading lots of them together this year. We have THE. BEST. TIME. you guys. Seriously. SO, we decided we had to try some of Mrs. Gaskell. Andi posted about it on Twitter (the root of all evil) and on her blog and it was unanimous. We had to go with North and South. It also turned out a few people wanted to read it with us! Huzzah! We have a Readalong! And when it is all over I will finally be able to indulge myself and watch the miniseries. Richard Armitage! Can I get a woot?
We’re so excited, we can’t wait. So we’re jumping in pretty soon. Here is the schedule:
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
We’re using GirleBooks edition of North and South, but really, any will do. We just love us some GirleBooks! And it’s free!
Some come on and join us, even if you’ve already read it.
I hear there may be prizes! I know there WILL be prizes!
