Deborah Harkness’s annual A Discovery of Witches Real-Time Read-Along kicks off Sunday, Sept. 18!
The events in A Discovery of Witches take place between September 18 and October 31. The idea is to read each chapter or section of the book on the day on which it occurs. Some days, that will mean reading several chapters; other days, nothing at all. The read-along culminates with the final chapters on Halloween and All Saints. It sounds like a wonderful way to get into the fall/Halloween spirit!I tried doing the read-along a year or two ago, and couldn’t slow my pace to the calendar, but I plan to try again this year. This time, I’m going to mark the pages on my Outlook calendar and in my planner/bullet journal, so I remember to read them on the right date. And I’ll try really hard not to read ahead.

If you’ve never read the book, and you’re on the fence about participating in the read-along, check out my review of A Discovery of Witches from back in 2011. It should give you some idea of why I love this book so much!
