Readalongs have become a semi-regular feature of the blog. Running over the course of 12 or so weeks, a readalong dives headfirst into a complex book, examining one section each week, in order to get the most out of interwoven plots, broadly imagined worlds, history, themes, symbolism, and really neat things the author has done in the book.World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, by Max Brooks. Readalong runs June 11th—August 6th, 2013. Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell. Readalong ran August 9th, 2012—October 30th, 2012. Possession: A Romance, by A.S. Byatt. Readalong currently on hiatus until your humble blogger is more in a Byattesque mood!
