I am happy to announce that in June I will be hosting a Cranford read-along, as voted on by my readers!
If you unsure if Cranford is the book for you, here is the synopsis taken from Goodreads.com:
"A gently comic picture of life in an English country town in the mid-nineteenth century, Cranford describes the small adventures of Miss Matty and Miss Deborah, two middle- aged spinster sisters striving to live with dignity in reduced circumstances. Rich with humor and filled with vividly memorable characters—including the dignified Lady Glenmire and the duplicitous showman Signor Brunoni—Cranford is a portrait of kindness, compassion, and hope. "
If you are interested, you can leave a comment here and I will link you to the post to show that your are participating. I would also appreciate it if you could spread the word on your own blogs so that we can get more participants. I have found that the more participants in a read-along, the more fun it is!
Since Cranford is a relatively short book, I decided to have two days for posting. There are 16 chapters, so a post on chapters 1-8 can be made on June 15th (a Tuesday). I will have a post up with my own thoughts. You can write your post and I will link to everyone's reviews here on my blog.
The second and final posting can be done on June 30th (a Wednesday). Again, I will have a post up and will link to everyone's reviews so that you may go and visit other people's blogs to see their own thoughts as well!
Again, leave a comment here saying you are interested and I will add you to the participant list.
I hope you will join us!
My mom (I think I will have her post on my blog as well, since she doesn't have her own blog). :)
