Prudence Read-Along, A Beginning!

Today kicks off the PRUDENCE READ-ALONG, co-hosted here on Skye's Scribblings and the Goodreads Gail Carriger Fan Group! (If you haven't yet heard about the Read-Along, check out the Introduction post here!)

Title: Prudence
Author: Gail Carriger

When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (Rue to her friends) is given an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female would under similar circumstances - names it the Spotted Custard and floats to India in pursuit of the perfect cup of tea. But India has more than just tea on offer. Rue stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis and an embarrassing lack of bloomers, what else is a young lady of good breeding to do but turn metanatural and find out everyone's secrets, even thousand-year-old fuzzy ones?

So here's how the read-along will work: Each Sunday through Saturday for the next 4 weeks, we will read 4 chapters of Prudence, breaking down the month thusly:

June 12th through June 18th: Chapters 1-4
June 19th through June 25th: Chapters 5-8
June 26th through July 2nd: Chapters 9-12
July 3rd through July 9th: Chapters 13-16 

The Saturday of each week (Friday evening on the Goodreads Fan Group), I will post a brief review of that week's chapters, along with a single Q&A with the author. If you Comment with your thoughts on either the Fan Group thread or the post, you earn major points towards my giveaway for a set of Carriger buttons! Want to share your thoughts live as you read? Tweet them using #PrudenceRA! But be sure to collect and share your comments on the weekend post to earn giveaway points.

So here we go! Make yourself a nice cup of tea, settle into your favorite reading spot, open your copy of Prudence to Chapter 1: The Sacred Snuff Box, and begin...
