Book groups like reading guides. They like the structure, the questions, the background information because those things increase the possibility of a good meeting and discussion. Homestead, Tied to the Tracks and Pajama Girls all have reading guides, but none of the Wilderness books do.
If anybody has an idea for a good question for ITW (not all the novels, just the first), please let me know in the comments. I’m trying to put a quick guide together. If I use one of your questions, of course I’ll give you credit for it. Also, if you have an idea for something that should be in this reading guide, please speak up. A particular map? Historical background?
I’m not sure I’ll have time to do much extra fancy stuff this time, but I do plan to do a bigger, more complete guide for the re-release in the fall.
