The Song of Achilles Then Possession #AchilleSong #ReadByatt

We have begun the Read-Along of The Song of Achilles! tsoabymm2 Everyone and anyone is invited to join in and I will be posting my FIRST HALF THOUGHTs on Sunday, March 3. I will probably have the whole book read by then, it’s so good!

A final post will be March 10. Feel free to post your own or just join the discussions here. We are informal. I haven’t even bothered to make a button. Is that bad? No sign-ups, no prizes, no pressure.

We do have a hashtag if you want to twitter along and post the quotes you like or your progress or questions. #AchilleSONG.

In other news…

The hosts of the A.S. Byatt’s Possession Read-Along possbyasb will have an official post up soon and have tweeted that the first check-in will be for chapters 1 – 6 on March 11.  The twitter hashtag for that is #readByatt.  Thank you Kim! Thank you Lulu! I know many of you commented on my last unplugged post that you might be interested…

    I was hoping to read Possession with you, but March is too packed… still working my way through Vanity Fair.

    I’m so glad I remembered I had that copy of Mythology on my TBR shelf. It has been the perfect compliment to Achilles. It’s also seriously helped me slow down in reading it.

    Thanks for mentioning our Possession read-a-long! We’ll have the official post up on Friday, but wanted to get the first little bit of info out to people before it got too late. We’re a little behind as organizers :)

    Nice hashtagging! I would love to join in on these, but probably won’t be able to without blowing off even more reviews than I’m already doing. Look forward to reading what everyone thinks. I’ve read Possession and definitely want to reread it one of these days.
