Oh, calloo callay, readalong preparation posting! I know you're all just fraught with excitement, so I thought I'd post now as we're just about a week away from its beginning.
I couldn't find this book at the Open Books warehouse sale. And there's a way long line for it at the library, so today I sucked it up and bought it for Kindle.
I HAVE A SCHEDULE PREPARED. This book is 34 chapters, totaling 444 pages in hardcover. *does double take* WHAT? Ok. Well. It's good we have a month to read it then, isn't it?
We begin on the glorious day of November 1st, aka All Saints' Day. This is a Tuesday. What an auspicious day for beginning! I'll have a post here and whoever wants can comment on expectations/general thoughts pre-reading.
We check in every Tuesday, except for the last week, which is a Wednesday. Here's how I've broken it down thus far:
Nov 1st-8th: Chapters 1-9
Nov 9th-15th: Chapters 10-19
Nov 16th-22nd: Chapters 20-28
Nov 23rd-30th: Chapters 29-34
Look at that immensely doable breakdown. This is going to be super-awesome, and we shall have Simultaneously Deep and Elevated Discussions About the Nature of Man and the Eternal Battles Between the Races.
