Welcome to our group read of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South. The read was birthed from a “chat” on one of our threads. Someone expressed a desire to read more classic literature, someone else suggested a group read, another chimed in that the holiday would be great timing, and here we are.
Everyone is welcome! The group read runs December 15 - January15. We’ll all be starting to read at different times, so there’s no need to feel you need to begin reading immediately in mid-December. I’ve posted three threads for discussion of North and South:
North and South (Non-Spoiler Thread) (you are here!): all general discussion of the novel
North and South, Chapters 1-26 (Spoiler Thread): specific discussion first half of the novel
North and South, Chapters 27-52 (Spoiler Thread): specific discussion second half of the novel
We’re delighted to have you join us. Let the discussion begin!
I'm hoping to enjoy North and South over my Christmas holiday which starts Dec 21. I've already requested the BBC mini-series from my library for post-read enjoyment. I saw it some time ago and it's fabulous!
eta: fixed the touchstone! thanks, qebo!
Yay, SO EXCITED!!!
Megan I will look for the internet reference tonight ;)
I love the BBC North and South. Love it.
And Im disappointed in myself to have to say that Im not really enjoying what Ive read so far! :( The story seems to be moving slowly for me and I dont feel like I am getting to know Margaret yet, thats after about 80 pages.
