Hello Trollope enthusiasts. We will be continuing our Trollope project with Phineas Redux, and I plan to start our discussion the week of July 15th. We will read 60-65 pages/8 chapters per week and so will spread the reading over 10 weeks. I will post a full schedule shortly but wanted to give everyone a heads up.

From a quick glance over the chapter titles (and even those give a few spoilers) it appears we will see some old friends back. I look forward to continuing to read and discuss this political saga in such good company.

Glad you can join us-I'm finding this an easy read as many favourite characters have returned.

As we come to the end of Phineas Redux, I am proposing a 3 week break to allow people to catch up, catch up on their other reading, and then start The Prime Minister on October 14th. We will likely spend 10 weeks on this 5th novel in our series, allowing us to break over Christmas and tackle the final novel,The Duke's Children in January. Let me know if that works for you or if you would like a longer break.
