eeclayton I got behind during the work week and caught up this morning. There are so many coincidences and I wonder if there's anyone to like in this book. I'm not sure I would go on if it wasn't for this buddy read and your hilarious posts @BarkingMadRead 😁 1w

BarkingMadRead @eeclayton this is definitely a weird one lol I‘m glad I‘m at least amusing you 🤣 1w
Bklover My favorite part of this entire book is @BarkingMadRead ! I think I‘d read anything you asked me to! 1w
BarkingMadRead @Bklover awwwww thanks! Does that mean you‘ll read Middlemarch with us starting in January? It‘s loooooooong 1w
Bklover Yes!!!! I would love to read Middlemarch with you!! I will go pull it from my shelves right now! 1w
Daisey What is this Middlemarch read you‘re mentioning? I might be interested! It‘s on my list but I‘ve been unsure about heading into it on my own. 1w
BarkingMadRead @Daisey it‘s written by George Eliot, it came up in one of the #pemberlitten books, the one about sisterhood that wasn‘t really about sisterhood 🤣 it‘s a #chunkster @Bklover I‘ll add you to the tag list 1w
Daisey Yes, I read along for the Sisterhood book, but I didn‘t realize there had been discussion of a buddy read. I haven‘t picked a chunkster to start the year, so this might be a great time to try that one. Will you add me to the list as well, please? 1w
BarkingMadRead @Daisey absolutely! 1w
IndoorDame Ooh, I‘ve been wanting to tackle Middlemarch! Will you tag me too? 1w
eeclayton Please add me to the Middlemarch taglist, too ☺️ 7d
SarahBookInterrupted @eeclayton me too. I think I may have bailed if it wasn‘t a buddy read. (edited) 7d
Bookwormjillk Add me to the list of people who would have never made it through without you @BarkingMadRead 7d

Jane Austen's Letters | Jane Austen, Deirdre Le Faye
post image

#Pemberlitten reading with snowfall and coffee. I am enjoying these letters very much and I do so wish we had them all! CAN YOU IMAGINE what they said?!?!?!?!?! Also her snark. Is LIFE. unless I am just reading it as snark. Either way, enjoyable.

IndoorDame You‘re definitely not alone in reading it as snark!!! 2w
batsy Definitely lots of snark! Jane can wield that pen as a weapon 😅 2w
TheBookHippie @batsy ✍🏼😂😂😂😂😂😂 2w

TheBookHippie @IndoorDame ha. Good. Phew. 2w
AnneCecilie I‘m reading it as snark as well. I know, think of all the snark we‘re missing. 2w
TheBookHippie @AnneCecilie it‘s a lot of fun! It‘s hard not to think about what was destroyed and… WHY?! 2w

BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk I will add you!! 1mo
Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRun thanks! Glad to be reading with you again! 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly I‘m not sure what to make of Polly! Is she meant to just be an extremely serious child or is she an older child with dwarfism? My four-year-old could never be so well-spoken 😅 1mo
BarkingMadRead @Clare-Dragonfly right? She is very precocious, and I think the word crib threw me off. I was expecting a toddler at most! 1mo
Sparklemn @Clare-Dragonfly I'm not as well spoken as Polly at 51! 😄 1mo
RebelReader @BarkingMadRun The word crib threw me off too. I was surprised that she even spoke. Do we know her age? Did I miss it? 1mo
BarkingMadRead @RebelReader it didn‘t say, maybe we will find out going forward! 1mo
SamAnne Wait—is the a #pemberlitten read starting? 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly I think the crib thing is one of those US/UK things—what we call a crib they call a cot (with the bars to keep the baby from falling out), so maybe what they call a crib we would call a cot or small bed? But that doesn‘t really help me comprehend how old she is! 1mo
BarkingMadRead @Clare-Dragonfly I think you‘re right, on both counts lol #howoldisthiskid 1mo

Excellent Women | Barbara Pym
post image

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I finally finished this #pemberlitten pick. I really loved the dry humor and all the talk of “excellent” women. Mildred is an “excellent” woman because she‘s bright and considerate and a good listener and can be friends with men without pressuring them to marry her 🙄 “excellent” being synonymous with doormat. Really smart comedy.

Northanger Abbey | Jane Austen

Our winner for our September/October book to read by Jane was Northanger Abbey, and the consensus was that we should save it for October!

I will plan to host a chapter-a-day #buddyread beginning on October 1. I‘ve tagged everyone who previously expressed interest, but all are welcome. Comment below if you‘d like to be added to my tag list.❤️

I will post a reminder closer to October. Looking forward to revisiting this favorite!

#pemberlitten #thewatsonsreadalong #chapter26 Ok, so I finished this morning, but I will only post one chapter a day! So Elizabeth returns with the glow of an engaged woman. She and Emma catch up on all she has missed. She encourages Emma to rethink becoming a governess when Mr. Howard shows up with a letter from his sister recommending Emma. Elizabeth goes to visit Mr Watson and Emma and Mr. Howard talk of her plans. Elizabeth returns in👇👇

MicrobeMom A rush insist that Mr. Watson wants to see Mr. Howard and he is quite upset. They all rush upstairs. 4mo
BarkingMadRead I finished last week, I couldn‘t stop reading! Poor Mr Watson! 4mo
Ruthiella I‘ve also already finished. I had to know! 😆 4mo

This is my #JubilantJuly stack while I try to keep cool 🥵. I‘ve got The Midcoast on my kindle at 30% read. The two #PemberLitten titles, Excellent Women and The Completing of the Watsons I‘ll finish this weekend. Next week is super stressful with work and other unfun stuff. But I‘d like to at least get a few chapters into Our Wives Under the Sea for #CampLitsy and Love Medicine for #Roll100 and #RememberingJenny. ❤️

Andrew65 Best of luck 😊👍 5mo
Centique Gosh I hope you like Love Medicine. I loved it 😍 have you read any others? There‘s a bunch of them that feature the same families so you get to know more about them. 5mo
Ruthiella @Centique I‘ve only read Erdrich‘s more recent work. I‘m excited to start at the start and work my way forward! 😀 5mo
BkClubCare @Ruthiella - how fun! 4mo

We will begin our #pemberlitten buddy read of The Watson‘s on Friday July 1. The completed version I will be reading has the same first chapters of Austen‘s unfinished work. So read along no mater the version. I will be doing a chapter a day (the completed version has 28 chapters) and I will post an update of each chapter daily. I will tag all those that said they wanted to be tagged (also tagged in this post) yay! Let the fun begin!
