Warning: This post contains spoilers for chapters 1 – 10 of Gone with the Wind

READALONG: Two Serpents Rise, by Max Gladstone: Week 4

Well, we’re at the final week for the readalong. It was fun, I have to say. I enjoyed the question-and-answer posts, I enjoyed reading what other people thought about the book, and I enjoyed knowing I finally read a book that I really should have read long ago. 797 more words
