I hereby invite one and all to participate in a group read of the book Post Captain by Patrick O'Brian, book #2 of his Aubrey-Maturin series. For this group read we're going to try something new, and read a few chapters at a time and discuss.
Post Captain has 14 chapters so I propose that we read 3 chapters a week, a nice leisurely pace that shouldn't conflict with your summer plans and give us the opportunity to really dig down.
Lets begin discussing the first 3 chapters July 10th (as to not conflict with any July 4th plans). So on that Friday, have the first 3 chapters read and be ready to comment.
If you haven't yet read Master and Commander, I suggest you do so for a good foundation before venturing into Post Captain, but it's by no means required. Anyone and everyone is invited to comment and participate - first time readers to the series and long time O'Brian fans are all welcome and encouraged to join in.
If you on board, please post a note here and let everyone know.
Cheers, see you in a few weeks.
