read-along Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

I'm rereading JS&MN at the moment (Norrell's running about with Drawlight in London; I'm not far in.) I wonder if there are enough JSMN fans on my flist to do a read along? Does anyone want to do a read along? There are about seventy chapters, so I could put up a post each week for chapters 1-5, or something. The details that are packed into footnotes means that any review or discussion I have of these books pretty much covers 1% of the novel.

(I'm totally fine with any of you guys spreading this/people dropping in to chat, and I'm happy to do it even if only one other person wants to. I really love this book.)

I have never read this book - though a copy lives on my kindle - and I was pondering it as one of the possibilities for the " >500 pages" square of the reading bingo game I am taking way too seriously. Maybe this is a sign?

I've owned the book for a really long time (bought it at a book fair back in 2009), but I've never gotten around to reading it. I probably should! And if there's discussion involved, then I am always interested.

Awesome! It's a great book, and I think there's SO much to discuss. Welcome aboard!
