His Dark Materials Readalong Begins!
Hello, and welcome to the His Dark Materials Readalong! This event is hosted by myself and Jessie from The Daily Bookmark. Here’s a little info about the event:
This time is a little different than our last readalong, however, because this time we’ve got some scheduled discussion posts! How it’ll work: each week, on Friday, either Jessie or I will post discussion questions on our blog about a certain number of chapters from the books. You can simply read them whenever you have read that far in the book, or you can comment on our posts, or you can answer our questions on your own blog and leave links in the comments!
Here’s our Discussion Post Schedule (all of the dates mentioned are on Fridays):
09/14: Chapters 10-17 (Part Two) of The Golden Compass (The Daily Bookmark)
09/21: Chapters 18-23 (Part Three) of The Golden Compass (The Overstuffed Bookcase)
09/28: Chapters 1-7 of The Subtle Knife (The Daily Bookmark)
10/05: Chapters 8-15 of The Subtle Knife (The Overstuffed Bookcase)
10/12: Chapters 1-12 of The Amber Spyglass (The Daily Bookmark)
10/19: Chapters 13-26 of The Amber Spyglass (The Overstuffed Bookcase)
10/26: Chapters 27-38 of The Amber Spyglass (The Daily Bookmark)
