I would love to hear who is participating who has never read Northanger Abbey before! I will really be interested to see what your thoughts and feelings are as we move through the book.
Does anyone have a Group Read Focus? I would love to hear what those are as well. Keep in mind that you don't HAVE to have a focus. I've done plenty of Group Reads where I didn't, and just wanted to read more attentively. I do have one this time, though, which seemed appropriate as the moderator, and it will be Catherine. I want to watch how she develops, and see how innocent or ignorant she is or isn't, how she matures, etc.
We will not be doing the chapter a day sort of discussion, as other moderators have found this a more difficult way to do things, so feel free to discuss the whole reading.
On Wednesdays I will post a word or phrase for you, and the challenge will be to write a cinquain by Friday. What is a cinquain? I've linked the definition on Wikipedia below. I thought I'd try something different from the haiku or limerick! :-)
As with all group reads, please adhere to the general Group Read Guidelines.
So come on in, join the party and have fun!
