Schedule for A Christmas Carol Read-a-Long

I can not believe it is already the middle of November.  It has been such a crazy month! With the Dickens read-a-long beginning next week - I realize it would be a good idea to post the schedule. 

First, here is the original post if you would like to sign up.  It is not necessary to sign up to participate, though.  If you want, you can just come here each week and post your thoughts or reply to the questions and others' responses.  This is not meant to be stressful - just fun.

Second, I had no idea that A Christmas Carol was such a short book.  Five weeks may be a little long considering the book is less than 100 pages but it is a busy time of year.  So, I want to stick with the original dates..  That being said, each week I will post questions and my own thoughts on each section of the book.

November 23, 2010 (posted on Tuesday rather than Thursday due to American Thanksgiving) - Stave One: Marley's Ghost.

December 2, 2010 - Stave Two: The First of the Three Spirits

December 9, 2010 - Stave Three: The Second of the Three Spirits

December 16, 2010 - Stave Four: The Last of the Spirits

December 23, 2010 - Stave Five: The End of It

This will take us right up to Christmas.  And hopefully a deeper understanding/perspective on the many movie versions.  Plus, it will just be nice to say we've actually read the book.  I am looking forward to doing this read-a-long with all of you.
