Coming Soon: Fforde-a-Thon

Though I have a stack of books here waiting to be reviewed, my reading isn't slowing down at all these days. And now I've gotten to the point where I am almost free to begin my re-reading of the entire Thursday Next series, concluding with a long-awaited first read of the sixth novel, One of Our Thursdays is Missing.

I plan to start reading this weekend (likely Friday) and will probably finish a book every two to four days. So, if you haven't started this wonderful series yet, join in with The Eyre Affair. If you stopped somewhere in the middle, pick up the next book with me. If you still have the final book sitting in your TBR stacks as well, pull it out and let's get reading together!

The books in the series are (in order)
The Eyre Affair
Lost in a Good Book
The Well of Lost Plots
Something Rotten
First Among Sequels
One of Our Thursdays is Missing

I will post on the day I finish each book so that you know when to pick up the next one if you're joining in. Otherwise, just sit back while I try and convince you to try this hilarious and smart series.

Shortly departing to Swindon and beyond,


  1. Oh, I wish I had time to re-read the entire series in order! I do have a copy of #6 (signed! by the author -- though I didn't get to attend the booksigning). I really want to read it and I think your postings will motivate me to pick it up soon!

  2. I imagine you will have quite a fun time. I just got a small taste of Fforde earlier this year and can't wait to read more.

    By the way, I'm just back from vacation and getting caught up with blogs. I'm only leaving one comment for everyone but reading all your posts. I figure less commenting will help me catch up faster. Thanks for understanding.

  3. I'm in for at least the first one! I can't wait to start it later this week!

  4. Karen - I don't really have the time but I'm making it anyway. I miss re-reading my favorites and I miss this series!

    Jenners - I never knew but there are things in this book that actually tie in to the Nursery Crime series and other novels of his. Amazing!

    Tif - Awesome! Can't wait for you to join me!
