Emma Group Read!
With Emma Approved, this has the potential to be the Year of Emma. (Never mind that Emma’s 200th birthday is still two years away.) What better way to celebrate the novel than by hosting a group read?
If you haven’t participated in one of our group reads before, they’re fairly straightforward. In a minute, I’ll post the schedule. On the dates listed, come to the chatroom prepared to discuss the chapters for the week. The group read always ends with a group watch of a film adaptation of the book.
As per usual, we’ll meet in the chat room at 6:00 pm PST on Sunday evenings, starting March 2. Chats usually last about an hour, depending on how much we find to discuss about the hero, fruit baskets, and cookies.
4/20: No Book Group–Easter Sunday
4/27: Group watch
I tried to break it down into even sized pieces, while keeping important plot breaks in mind as well. SparkNotes has a great breakdown, if you want to know more about the characters before we get started.
If you don’t own Emma, it is available as a free ebook from Kindle and Barnes and Noble. You can also get the audiobook free from Ambling Books, or if you have the Kindle version and wish the audiobook to Whispersync, you can get it from Audible.
During the group read, we’ll be featuring Indie Jane authors who’ve written Emma adaptations. There will also be some Emma related Friday Fun posts, and who knows what else we might come up with?
