Want to Read "The Hound of the Baskervilles" with Me?


Yup, my next read-along is right around the corner!  I'll be posting about the first chapter on Monday, Oct. 13.  Now, you don't have to sign up for this officially or anything, but if you're kind of thinking you'll be participating and you want to say so here, go ahead :-)  Or if you have any questions.  I'll be running this like my LOTR read-along, with individual chapter posts that include possible discussion questions and so on.  You can join this read-along whether you've never read THOTB before or have read it dozens of times.

AND this read-along might possibly-maybe-perhaps involve a Very Special Guest Interview.  Still working on those details, but my heart is pounding just thinking about it.  More on that when things firm up.  Or don't.

If anyone has an idea for a guest post for this read-along, I would totally be interested.  Like a review of a movie version of THOTB, for instance.  A comparison of the Sherlock episode "The Hounds of Baskerville" with the original story.  Soliloquizing on why Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson is so awesome.  Your favorite recipe for split pea soup.  I'm up for suggestions!

If you're interested in participating, or just want to share the news about this, please consider putting one of these buttons on your blog someplace, with a link back to this post.  I'm not providing an html code for them right now, but if you need those, I can figure them out.



I'm thinking we'll do about 2 chapters a week, so not a super-fast pace, but not too draggy either.

    1. Yay! And no kidding... BC and MF need to stop being so popular and making all these other movies and just do Sherlock.

    2. Most definitely. But I guess they can't help being so awesome. :-)

  2. I doubt I'll have time to start this before your first party post, but I'll try to catch up later if work slows down!

    1. Awesome! I mean, not awesome that your library didn't have it for you and you had to buy a copy, but... it's a good book to have a copy of :-) I'm glad you like the buttons! The house-and-carriage one is a screenshot I took from the Granada TV version (w/Jeremy Brett) because isn't it perfectly atmospheric? :-D
