June 1book140 Reading Schedule: 'The Name of the Rose'

By Jeff Howe

1book140_icon.JPG A few weeks ago we decided to read a Whodunnit for June. In a short, intense bit of voting, all y'all picked the Umberto Eco classic, The Name of the Rose. It may not be a traditional mystery, nor quite fit the profile of light, summer reading, but then, this is the reading group that tackled Kafka on the Shore and that most enigmatic of post modern tomes, Right Ho, Jeeves. In other words, I'm sure we're up for it. 


Here is our discussion* schedule for June:

• June 1 - June 8: Discuss Part 1, tagging your tweets with the hashtag #1b140_1

• June 9 - June 15: Discuss Parts 2 and 3 at #1b140_2 and #1b140_3

• June 16 - June 22: Discuss Parts 4 and 5 at #1b140_4 and #1b140_5

• June 23 - June 20: Discuss Parts 6 and 7 at #1b140_6 and #1b140_7

And as always, happy reading, bookies. 

*As always, we here at 1book140 encourage freedom and liberty for all. In other words, read at whatever pace suits you. Our schedule, and the hashtag system, is merely to organize the conversation and avoid giving away plot spoilers. You can add a comment about any part of the book at any time, though the mass of readers generally follow the published schedule.
