I am going to be reading a book about Detecting and Cats (sadly not Detective Cats?), and I’d like you to read along with me!
Start date: 21st October
Why are we reading this?
We’re reading a book because reading is fun and also good for you
We’re reading this book specifically because there was a group last year which read and enjoyed the first in the series, so now we’re going to tackle the second. It does not matter if you haven’t read the first book - each story is very self-contained
How difficult is the book?
You can get an idea of the difficulty by clicking on the picture at this Amazon page, and looking through the sample pages. Remember that we’ll all be helping each other out though
How do I join?
If you’d like to join in, just buy a copy of the book (links below) and complete the poll!
- I want to take part in this club
- I don’t want to take part but I like clicking things
Where can I buy the book?
To buy from Amazon JP you will need a separate account from [your native country’s] version of Amazon.
How fast are we going to read it?
We’re going to start off reading at a pace of one page per day. The discussions will however be centred around weekly threads.
We’ll very slightly increase the pace across stories one and two, to nine pages per week. We might go a little quicker again for story three as people will be reading faster by then, but will hold a vote on that.
There will be two breaks, between the stories, to give people a little respite / catchup time. We should be done around the end of January!
