Book Time with Bess! The Bess Crawford Read Along!

Last year I remember Jen from Devourer of Books joining in for a read-along of the Maisie Dobbs series. I love that series and thought it was great that so many people were discovering her books for the first time. In my blog-hopping today I discovered that Book Club Girl, the host of that read-along, is hosting another one for the Charles Todd Bess Crawford series.

Here's the schedule:

March 26th - A Duty to the Dead discussion
April 30th
 - An Impartial Witness discussion

May 1st – A Bitter Truth paperback goes on sale
May 29th
 – A Bitter Truth discussion (May 28th is Memorial Day)
June 5th - An Unmarked Grave – the new hardcover goes on sale
June 25th
 – An Unmarked Grave discussion
June 28th
 – Book Club Girl on Air Show with Charles Todd to Discuss the Entire Series
Look for updates along the way here, on Twitter 

I am planning on joining in. Apparently you can get the first book for $1.99. I am off to see if that option is open for me in Canada. I hope other people will join in! (If you are participating in the War Through the Generations challenge this is a good idea!)


  1. This sounds great, thanks for sharing this, I might join as well. The schedule is nice and if it fits The War Through the Generations, all the better.

    1. I started the first book and am enjoying it so far. I am looking forward to the series.

  2. I'm so excited about this read-along! I listened to A Duty to the Dead on audio, and already reviewed it, but will definitely chime in on the discussion. And I am in for the other books, because I absolutely loved it.

    1. I probably read your review of A Duty to the Dead... I wish I had paid more attention!

  3. I'm so glad you're joining us!

    1. Thanks! It should be fun!

  4. Sounds like fun! I just downloaded A Duty to the Dead from my library to my Nano. Now to make a note to visit during the read-along...

    1. I am terrible at read-along schedules, but I am going to try!


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
