2 New Readalongs

OK, I know I said I was having a break from readalongs this month but these two don't begin until near the end of the month so it didn't take much to change my mind. I've discovered I really enjoy readalongs's nice to have company to share thoughts with, I read books I might not have otherwise, and I'm learning to read slower and think more about what I'm reading.

So here are two which you might also like to participate in.

Musashi by Eiji Yoshikawa

September 20 - November 22

The classic samurai novel about the real exploits of the most famous swordsman.........follow the above link to read more about the book and the format of the readalong.


The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

September 20 - October 31

Jointly hosted by Coffee and a Book Chick and Tedious & Brief who have created a readalong blog where you can sign up at

The Historian is an ideal book to read for the RIP V Challenge



  1. Oh, it's going to be such a fantastic fall!! I can't wait to get going!!

  2. Never been in a read along, but perhaps some other time, even if it sounds fun. Good luck!

  3. Thanks for pointing out The Historian Readalong....I signed up.

  4. I'm participating in The Historian Readalong too. They are so fun and very addicting.

    I must agree with you, it's great reading everyone's own take on it and is part of the enjoyment. Good luck!

  5. I can't wait to hear what you think about these two.
