The Crimson Petal and the White Read-Along: Week 0 – Introductions

It’s time for some ‘passion, intrigue, ambition and revenge’!

I’ve made a start on the book this afternoon and it’s excellent so far.  If you haven’t signed up yet and have been thinking about it, I’m pretty sure we’re in for quite a treat!  The schedule is here.
1.  Introduce yourself!

2.  If this is your first read, what are you expecting from it?  If this isn’t your first time, what has prompted you to re-read?

3.  Book porn time – share a picture of your edition.

4.  This is some pretty chunky historical fiction.  Is it the kind of book that you’d normally go for or is this more of a safety in numbers deal to help you tackle something out of your comfort zone?

Post a link to wherever you’re chatting about The Crimson Petal and the White below so that I can swing by and we can talk 19th century prostitutes and…well, whatever this book turns out to be about!
