Tag Archives: Miéville is on my list of authors to try

Summer in “the City! and the City!!”

So, one of the amazing most wonderful things about Twitter is the spontaneous ideas that catch fire. @Lulu_bella saw my random tweet about @BiblioEva‘s recent review post on China Miéville’s The City and the City and BOOM!

we attracted the notice of Nymeth and Iris and Belle and Melissa and some other wonderful people…

Turns out of few of us have been wanting to read this book (or SOMETHING by this author) and we are excited to join with other Tweeters and BookBloggites to do a readalong. We flexibly agreed to read The City and the City this summer and we will kick it off with a BANG!

on or around the date June 15.

Like I say, informal and flexible. Get a copy, start reading it on June 15 and we’ll see what happens. I’m not skilled at readalong planning structure setting-upping so let’s just say this post is a kick-off.  We don’t need a SIGN-UP; just read it and participate if the stars (timing) align and we’ll have a party. Perhaps more details and organization will follow.

Which means you are invited.
