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, SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. 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.
