Who doesn’t love Wilkie Collins? Well, me, since I’ve never read any of his books (says Andi). BUT, this is a prime opportunity, if you’re new to Wilkie or a long-time fan, to join others in reading a couple of his novels for our Wilkie in Winter event! This event is brought to you by Amanda from Fig and Thistle, in tandem with The Estella Society (Andi and Heather).
That’s right, kids, we’re reading TWO Wilkie selections this winter!
First is the lesser-known novella, The Frozen Deep, weighing in at about 100 pages. We’ll start reading this one on December 21 and we’ll discuss it here and link-up our reviews on January 7!
The Woman in White will take just a touch longer. We’re stretching this one out a bit to allow for post-holiday reading hangovers. We will post questions here on the alloted days and you can link up your own discussion posts!
Epoch 1 – January 27
Epoch 2 – February 10
Epoch 3 – February 24
If your edition is not split into Epochs, I think you can safely read your book in thirds.
Now, go forth and spread the word! Because what’s more fun than a cozy winter Readalong?
Feel free to express your intent to join us below (or don’t). We’re pretty laid back.
Hey there, Dog Days of Summer (#ddsummer) readers!!! We’ve been having a blast with this event, and the amount of participation and discussion on Twitter has been wonderful and surprising! Thank you so much for being with us and reading your hearts out!
It’s quite early on Sunday as I’m writing this, but I wanted to put up a post where you can link your own #ddsummer participation posts. If you did an intro or updates or a wrap-up, feel free to link them here. I know I’m looking forward to creeping on everyone’s blog to see what you were reading or what you finished during this event. If you’re a BookTuber, same goes! Link up any videos you did for this event.
Thanks again for all your support and enthusiasm! Our next Readathon will be the big daddy — Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon (#readathon) in October. October 12th to be exact. Be sure to watch 24hourreadathon.com for updates! They’re starting this week!
Don’t forget to join us for the Dog Days of Summer Readathon! We’ll be reading nostalgia reads, re-reads, and books that remind us of a particular time in life. We’ll be doing some Tweeting (#ddsummer) and some chattering and I hope you’ll join us for a relaxed summer reading extravaganza!
We’ll post a linky along the way for you to update or wrap up!
