Real Time Reading

wordpress4

I am doing the real time reading of Discovery of Witches. It is very nerdy. Let me tell you about it. The events in the novel take place from September 18 to Halloween in 2009. The author, Deborah Harkness, in her infinite wisdom set up a real time read along of the book. When events in the book happen on September 27 you read the chapters that correspond with those events on that day in 2017. It’s great. Not only that, she has a free Kindle book with photos from the places that inspired the book’s settings and a real calendar with each day written out. I have now put them all on my Google calendar and I will be reading it every year with this read along.

It’s one of the best things I’ve ever discovered. Other books that use specific dates and timelines should follow suit.
