Greetings, my dearest DMers!
Those of you who are members of the White Tower social group may remember my 2015 thread in the Blue Ajah in which I brought everyone along with me on my first ever read through of the Harry Potter novels - since it's a restricted access board, those of you who aren't in the WT have never seen it... I had such an amazing time sharing my thoughts on the books and hearing others' reactions and commentary as well that I have been itching to do more of it.
A few weeks ago I started a new Wordpress blog - The Logophile - and I'm going to be linking my relevant posts over here for those who aren't Facebook friends and already aware of them
On the blog, I recently started a re-read of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, and I'd like to invite you all to pop over and join me if you are interested. We're only 3 chapters in, and working slowly (one chapter per week), so it shouldn't be too hard to catch up. Even if you can't catch up, you're always welcome to comment on older posts as you read.
Those of you who are mafia players may remember my A Wrinkle in Time game from a few years back - and the sequel, A Wind in the Door... I'm working on a setup for the third book, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, for which I wanted to re-read the book anyway, and that kind of prompted the whole reread blog to begin with. So for my non-DM, non-mafia playing friends, I tried to explain myself here:
Here's the introduction to the re-read:
And the first 3 chapters if you'd like to read along:
I'll link the others as they appear, of course. And also here, I plan to go back and copy my Harry Potter readthrough commentary from last year so those who didn't get a chance to see it can enjoy the progression... and do a little chitchatting about other reading things, including reading challenges past and future.
Pop over to the Logophile if you have time to say hello and join the Madeleine L'Engle reread... I'd love to hear from you!
