The Envelope Please

Well, there is overwhelming support for The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford. For me, this is another of those books I picked up some time ago for some specific reason that I can no longer recall, so it will be interesting to read. If you have already read it, consider rereading it, or skimming it to refresh, and at the very least participate in the final discussion.

Buy it, mooch it, borrow it from the library, or download it from Project Gutenberg. Just read it and have your thoughts ready to share on Thursday 31 May. I would greatly appreciate if someone with greater knowledge than me could set up a discussion page at Metaxucafe for this book. I will add links to the left side as well. Please feel free to post any other information you find relevant to the discussion at any time.

I hope everyone enjoys the book!

Good choice! I'm not sure I'll re-read it, as I've read it twice already, but I will refresh my memory to try to participate in the discussion. And I get set up the Metaxu Cafe page.

I just discovered this group (too late to read Lady Susan unfortunately) and i was wondering if it might be possible to join in for the Ford Maddox Ford reading. Thanks!

Oh, may I have an e-mail invitation too, please? I wanted to join in. I also have a question: may we do posts on the book whenever we like before the end of May or is that when we start? And do they have to be on here or at Metaxu...?

Quillhill said...

Imani, I have sent you an invite. Glad to have you along. We would prefer you post your thoughts on the scheduled day. In the past Slaves have cross-posted here, on their own blog, and at Metaxucafe. No hard rule, though it is nice to have them all here at least in one place. The question/answer/discussion forum will be at Metaxucafe, and we will have a link posted.

Ahh, I get it now. Thanks!

I am sorry: I have prepared something for Lady Susan, but I cannot find how to log on anymore. Could someone help me out ?

Quillhill said...

Mandarine, I have sent you an invitation that should allow you to post. Thanks.

Ooh, can I join? I read The Good Soldier a long time ago, but would love to re-read it, and discuss with the group...

Quillhill said...

Gentle, all are welcome to throw off the chains of freedom and become a Slave! I have sent you a formal invitation. We look forward to reading your thoughts.
