The Perilous Gard Read-along announcement

Hello everyone! I’m still in the midst of my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) program and therefore haven’t been posting here. But! I do want to announce that starting next Sunday, October 4, I’ll be hosting a Read-along for The Perilous Gard, one of my favorite seasonal books. All of the posts are written and scheduled, and I’d love to have you along for the ride! Whether this is an old favorite or a brand new read, there should be plenty to discuss.

Here’s the schedule we’ll be following:

October 4, Week 1: Welcome, context and Chapters 1-2

October 11, Week 2: Chapters 3-5

October 18, Week 3: Chapters 6-8

October 25, Week 4: Chapters 9-11

November 1, Week 5: Chapters 12-13 and wrap-up

If you’ve already read this book, I’m sure you can see what I’m doing with the timing there! Comments will be open for all the posts, so read along with me and join in with your thoughts and favorite moments.

The Perilous Gard Read-along

My name is Maureen. I currently work as a library assistant in a public library in the Indianapolis area, and also just so happen to be a voracious reader. I frequently end up under a cat.

Hi Maureen, I didn’t know you were working on a Masters – that’s wonderful to hear, and I hope your new semester is going well despite all the challenges of this year.

THE classic fall reading choice ❤

I am! I think I forgot to actually mention it here. Fortunately (?) my program was already totally online, so that one part of my life hasn’t been disrupted too much.

It’s so nice to get a comment from you, btw! I was just thinking about your blog the other day for some reason.

Ah, I am overdue for a reread of this book as well! But Return of The Thief is coming out next week, and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to look at another book while I’m focused on that. Maybe I’ll go back and do a post-read-along afterwards, hehe.

And best of luck on your Masters program! I hope you’re enjoying it!

Oh this is great, I actually reread The Perilous Gard not long ago so it’s very fresh in my mind! I love the descriptions you’ve picked out in the first post.
