The Fforde-a-Thon Begins

Photo from
Well, I've turned the last page on my current read so it's time to walk over to my shelves and pull down Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair! I would guess that it's my fourth or fifth time reading the novel but it will be my first time with this copy of the book. A year or so ago, I found a pristine used hardcover copy and, as this was the only one in the series that I had in paperback, I upgraded.

So, if you wanted to join me in this first of six adventures with the amazing Thursday Next, grab your copy today! I'll be tweeting a bit about the book over the next couple of days (@webereading, if you don't follow me yet) and will be back with a post when I'm done. By the way, I'm not doing this in any sort of speedy, twenty-four hours of reading type deal, just a regular pace, so don't feel like you can't join in a day late!

Plock, plock,


  1. I do adore his writing . . . and by extension, him, a bit. :)

  2. I read The Eyre Affair a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! I hope to read more of the series soon.

  3. Buffy - I know what you mean! I have no idea what kind of person he is but he's awesome regardless. :)

    Alyce - It's a really unique series and if you liked the first one, you will definitely like the rest!
