Hi everyone! Today, I have exciting news. You might know that I’ve been planning to give more classics a go, after reading and enjoying Pride and Prejudice last year. I wanted to read more of Jane Austen’s work. And then Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense suggested a buddy read for Emma could be fun. Perfect idea, no?
SO WE ARE HOSTING A READ-ALONG FOR EMMA!
When do we start?
We’ll start reading on March 10th. That way we have three weeks until the end of March to read Emma.
Emma is divided into three volumes, so we are planning on reading 1 volume per week. Which should mean we finish on March 31st.
How do we communicate?
Well. On Twitter, of course!
We’ll be using the hashtag #EmmaRAL (Emma Read-along) for general updates on the reading progress and story, and are planning on creating a group DM for all those interested, to go into more detail when discussing the story.
Can anyone join?
Of course! We’d love it if you could read along with us! The more, the merrier, right? It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first time reading Emma, or whether you just want to re-read the book during the buddy read. All are welcome.
If you’d like to join us, leave a comment or Tweet at @fictionalreader or @booknonsense. You can also leave a comment on Alicia’s announcement post, which will be going up later today. (Them time zones, people. Always so confusing!)
