Who Wants To Do A Read-Along?

10 Apr

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I’m going to go ahead and do it. Is anyone interested in doing a read-along? Before you answer, let me tell you how I think this would shake down.

  1. We choose a book (I’ve elected four, see below)
  2. Every two weeks we all commit to reading about 50 or so pages
  3. On a selected date, all participants would propose one or two questions about the material covered in the past two weeks
  4. Within the next week, all participants would write a blog post answering the questions that were asked by other readers
  5. We all link to each other, comment on each others posts, and have a general community of happy reading times.

That’s really all I’ve got right now. Have I piqued anyone’s interest? Maybe? Maybe not? This is something I’d like to continue doing for a while and try to build a community around.

I’ve picked four books I’d like to choose from this first time and ┬áthen I would open it up to those participating going forward. It’s like a book club, but slower reading and more blogging!

You can either leave a comment or email me at my new email address, If you’re going to read with me or follow in the blog, please vote for the title you’d like to see below!

Until next time, write on.
