Fun Friday! - A Read-along!
First of all, Thanks to Vonnie (Vonnie's Reading Corner) for making this awesome banner and button!!!
Last year a bunch of us (and by bunch I mean 4-5 people) all read the end-of-the-world series - Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. We had a great time reading this all together, even though it was a sad series to read. We talked about it so much and even made up little games.
When I saw this new book was out (and it seemed to be getting good reviews) I thought it looked like a good one to do as a read-along. Why another end-of-the-world book? Because those always stir up emotions and there is always lots to talk about. I don't know about you guys, but the Life As We Knew It series will stay with me a long time!
So I decided to do a formal Read-along.
Here's my plans so far -
The book - After The End, by Amy Plum
When - We will all begin the book around Aug. 1st and finish before Aug. 27th
I will do a final post (wrap-up) on Aug 27th
I will divide the book up into 3 or 4 parts. We will have 3-4 discussions throughout the month to talk about the book. I will let you know when and where the discussions are.
I am having "people" looking to private chatrooms or twitter chat so we can use that as a form of discussion. If this can't be done we can either do it via email or just on my blog.
I will list all the people joining us on my blog in the beginning of the month (you do not have to have a blog but would be great if you did!) I would like all you to advertise this as well! Please grab the button and post this on your blog and ask your friends, the more the merrier!
Then at the end we will all post a final review or thoughts of the book and thoughts of our discussions between Aug. 27 - Aug. 31, with links back to my blog, please. Of course I will post links to all of yours!
*** I will be doing a $10.00 Amazon e-gift card giveaway to one of the participants!!!
That's all I have right now. This is my first time doing this! If you have any suggestions or questions please comment or email me @ forevereading at gmail dot com
