The Bess Crawford Read a Long with BookClubGirl!

I have been waiting for this! I have my copy of The Duty to the Dead to start, all ready and waiting!

Book Club Girl is hosting this and you can sign up too if you wish! Come on and join the fun. This will be my first official “read-a-long” and it was thanks to Book Club Girl that I picked up my first Maisie Dobbs book. She was hosting a read-a-long for Maisie at the time. I did not join but ended up falling madly in love with Maisie!

I had already marked down the Bess Crawford series as one to read, and when I discovered Bess-time was WWI time, well I decided to wait until this Read-a-Long to, well, more than likely, fall madly in love with Bess Crawford too!

Book Club Girl on Air Show with Charles Todd to Discuss the Entire Series

Look for updates along the way here, on Twitter (#besscrawford), and on the Book Club Girl and Charles Todd Facebook pages.

If you are a big Maisie Dobbs fan and of Downton Abbey you’ll want to join in the fun! We’re all going to be experiencing Downton withdrawl after last night’s amazing season finale.

This Read-a-Long was hinted at last year and was anticipated in my 2012 reading goals and challenges, so I’m all a twitter about it! :-)
