Maisie Dobbs Read-A-Long with Book Club Girl


I'm planning on taking my reading and blogging in a slightly different direction during 2011.  To that end, I'm signing up with Book Club Girl's Masie Dobbs Read-A-Long

I loved the first couple of books in the series by Jacqueline Winspear, and now I'll be reading them all in preparation for the release this spring of A LESSON IN SECRETS.

This is more than a reading challenge - it's an ongoing reading event! There will be discussions, contests, prizes - even (hopefully) a visit from Jaqueline Winspear to Book Club Girl on the Air. You can get all the details on Book Club Girl's website.

If you're interested in joining, here is the schedule of when Book Club Girl will post questions to discuss each of the books:

January 14th - Maisie Dobbs
January 31st - Birds of a Feather
February 14th - Pardonable Lies
February 22nd - Paperback edition of The Mapping of Love and Death goes on sale
February 28th - Messenger of Truth
March 14th - An Incomplete Revenge
March 22nd - Hardcover of A Lesson in Secrets goes on sale
March 28th- Among the Mad
April 11th- The Mapping of Love and Death
April 25th - A Lesson in Secrets

I am so looking forward to this! Hope you join in, too!

Wow, that's quite a marathon of Maisie Dobbs! I read the first book this year and loved it (and have the next three), but I don't think I want to rush through all of her books in one year (although I admit to being tempted!). Anyway, good luck with the readalong!

I read the first Maisie Dobbs book for a lark, and while there were some definite things I liked about both the series and the character, I am not sure if I would like to continue on with them like you are doing. I haven't made up my mind yet, so I will be watching your posts with a lot of excitement and seeing if these books might be for me. Good Luck!!

My husband loves this series, so I'm glad to hear there is a new one coming out in the Spring.
Enjoy yourself with this event!

Sounds like a good plan. I tried reading one of these books but the constant point of view shifts drove me crazy. Good stories though.
