The April Buddy Reads

Reblogged from: Moonlight Reader

All right, everyone, open thread for April buddy reads/readalongs/etc.
What I know so far:

April 1:

Mort - Terry Pratchett

Discworld is reading the 4th Discworld book, Mort, which is also the first in the “Death” subseries. The buddy read starts on April 1, and continues through the end of April, so you can jump in any time!

 

April 1:

The Floating Admiral - G.K. Chesterton,G.D.H. Cole,Dorothy L. Sayers,Ronald Knox,Edgar Jepson,Freeman Wills Crofts,Victor L. Whitechurch,Detection Club,Anthony Berkeley,John Rhode,Clemence Dane,Henry Wade,Margaret Cole,Milward Kennedy,Agatha Christie,Helen Simpson 

BrokenTune, Lillelara and I are planning a buddy read of this collaborative novel by various authors of The Detection Club.

 

April 19:

The Agathytes are reading Crooked House

 

Other possibilities:

Chris’ Fish Place, Tigus & I are discussing a Maigret-along, although we haven’t identified a book or a date.

Themis & I are going to continue with reading Agatha’s plays, planning on Murder on the Nile, although I don’t recall if we set a date. Sometime in April is my recollection – Themis, did we actually pick a date?

There’s also been a lot of talk about the RITAs and how authors of color aren’t nominated/don’t win in a way that suggests a hostility of romancelandia towards those authors. I have been interested in reading something by Beverly Jenkins for a while, and would love to buddy read with other readers. When I asked Ms. Bev which of her books she would recommend a new reader, she suggested Indigo, so I’d love to start with that one!

If you are hosting a buddy read that you want me to add to the post, put it in the comments. If you are interested in getting one going, put it in the comments and we’ll see what develops!

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Hobbit – Performed by Andy Serkis

Like its magnificent sequel, The Hobbit is, I think, many things to many people: the first exposition of the universe that would become Middle-earth; prelude to The Lord of the Rings; a bite-sized visit to Middle-earth whenever you don’t feel up to the full blow of the War of the Ring(s); one of the most […]

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
