A Date with William

I couldn't help but think of Ms Middleton and April 29 just now...but no, not THAT William!

Simon is off to Edinburgh and it's fine with him if I take the reins for our book chat so circle February 24, on your calendar and stop by my place to share your thoughts on William.  It's a Thursday but we'll squeak it in before Persephone Reading Weekend kicks off the next day.  And very much looking forward to it I am!

There is a resemblance to Pride and Prejudice, in the first few pages of William, with Mrs Nesbitt in a tizzy over her grown children and Mr Nesbitt's efforts to ease her.  I can't wait to see where all this leads!

Whether you are reading along over the next couple of weeks or have read William in the past, we would love to have you drop by and share your thoughts.  See you on the 24th!


  1. not sure I can get this (or to it) in time, but you've intrigued me, and I'm putting it on my list. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

  2. I will not be able to get to this at all but will be following you with the comments! The moment you said it was P&P you had me intrigued.

  3. Hello, I haven't posted here before but have been following your blog for quite a while. I couldn't resist trying to buy this book and like another of your readers I found it in the UK through eBay - the Virago edition, and at a great price! Looking forward to the discussion, whether it arrives here (Australia)in time or not!

  4. Audrey, It's a wonderful read so far!

    Gypsy Rose, Once it arrives you have an excuse to beg off some of your domestic duties then!

    Mystica, As always, it's lovely to have you drop by.

    Elizabeth, That's wonderful! It's a charming read so far with some hilarious quips so I don't think you'll regret joining us one bit!

  5. Read it, loved it, can't wait to see everyone's reviews and join in the discussion over here! (Have just posted about it - if you hold the discussion then I'll do a round-up of reviews, sound like a fair division of labour??! If you've emailed me about it, I'll find it sometime tomorrow..(!))

    And I even have a copy that I'll be giving away...

  6. Simon, That is fabulous news about the give away and I can't believe you're finished already!

    Great idea about the to you soon!
