Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch Read Along!
Posted April 12, 2012on:
We had so much fun with our The Lies of Locke Lamora read along, is everyone ready to dive into the sequel, Red Seas Under Red Skies? A very different adventure for our remaining Gentlemen Bastards, and even when they don’t go looking for trouble, trouble finds them. you can read my not-too spoilery review here.
how to get involved, you ask?
If you participated in the Lies of Locke Lamora read along, congrats! you are already on my mailing list and don’t have to do anything, unless of course you don’t want to do this read along. If that’s the case you can a) ignore my e-mails, or b) e-mail me back and ask me to take you off the list.
If you didn’t participate in the Lies of Locke Lamora read along (srsly, you totally missed out), and you would like to participate in this one, just leave a comment on this post and I’ll add you to the list. no spam, I promise, just once weekly e-mails with that week’s discussion info.
Here’s the tentative reading schedule, and again, I’ve referred to chapter headings as the page numbers are different depending on which version you have (paperback, hardback, etc):
If you start reading right around April 20th, you’ll be all set :
Week 1 – beginning thru End of Chapter 3, discussion questions go out Thurs April 26, posts go up Sat April 28
Week 2 – Reminiscence “The Lady of the Glass Pylon” through end of Chapter 6, discussion questions go out thurs May 3, posts go up Sat May 5
Week 3 – Chapter 7 thru end of Chapter 10, discussion questions go out May 10, posts go up May 12
Week 4 – Chapter 11 thru end of chapter 13, discussion questions go out May 17, posts go up May 19
Week 5 – Chapter 14 to the end, discussion question go out May 24, posts go up May 26
Same schedule as before, you’ll get an e-mail on Thursdays with discussion starters, and posts will go up on Saturdays, after which we’ll all go crazy all weekend commenting and tweeting and generally ignoring our families and other obligations whilst being total pests on the interwebs. Sounds like fun, right?
And because I am an attention whore who can’t help but brag:
it’s funny, because he’s not scruffy.
