Good evening guys! It’s been an exciting day of announcements here at The Cosy Book Shoppe and this evening is not any different! Every year I re read a couple of series that I have in my library as a way of delving back into the world and reliving all of the wonderfulness that was that book or series. This year I have added a couple of new books and series to my all time favorite list and one of those series does a real time reading of the series. A real time reading means that you read the series in the exact timeframe (and dates if applicable) as the events are occurring in the book. This allows for an incredible and insightful reading experience!
This year I am pleased to say that I am going to be participating in the A Discovery of Witches Real Time Reading! A Discovery of Witches and the All Souls Trilogy are on my all time favorite list (along with Harry Potter and Outlander) and I am very excited to be able to read along with the story in the timeframe that it moves on. The book takes place over 40 days (and a lot happens in those 40 days) and I really think that reading the book on the dates that are actually occurring in the book is going to just add a whole new level of understanding and enjoyment of the book and characters.
The other incredible thing for this Real Time Reading is that it is run and organised by Deborah Harkness herself! She will be sharing her own thoughts and pictures throughout the whole reading. To me, this makes the reading even more special and I’m really looking forward to gaining insight on her mind and writing while reading the story. Everything is going to be handled through Social Media and I will be sharing updates and pictures through my Facebook, Instagram (thecosybookshoppe), and Twitter (cosybookshoppe). Feel free to follow along!
In doing this Real Time Reading, it will change the posts up just a little as I will be able to do some outside reading, but not as much. I will just have to play by how the next month or so falls into place. I will have a couple posts just in regards to the Readathon and how things are progressing and working as well as any thoughts that I have at the time for the story.
The Real Time Reading starts on Saturday, September 18 and I’m really excited and ready to delve back into this world! Once the Real Time Reading has concluded, I plan on reading through the other two books as well!
