And the Next Read-Along Will Be…

26 Aug

Thank you so much to the one person who voted on line (sarcasm) and the two people who voted via email. In truth, I could have read any of the selections and been happy, but I’m really selfishly excited for this choice because it’s been on my TBR pile for ages. Anyway, Read-Along Volume II will be…

The Space Between us by Thrity Umrigar

Woo hoo! I heard Umrigar speak about a year ago and I’ve also read her memoir and I’m sure we’re heading for a crazy roller coaster with this title.

If you’re interested in joining up, please send me an email: SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. I’ll get  you on a mailing list and send out the schedule. Here’s the basic premise of a Read-Along:

  • The book is divided into six sections (about 50 pages)
  • You will read a section every two weeks
  • After you read a section, you will (via email) submit a question to the group
  • For each section, an assigned member will pose a topic (ex. forgiveness, maternal instinct) upon which everyone else will muse
  • Within a week of a section ending, you’ll write a blog post in any format you choose to discuss the section with other participants.

As I’m only a site on the internet to most of you, I can’t enforce any of this. It’s what you make of it; the more you do, the more you get out. If you can’t give as much,  you get what you can and that’s that. It’s very relaxed and I hope we can all enjoy.

Get excited! I know I am!

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at SamAStevensWriter@gmail.com. And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

      I hope so, too! It would be great to have you join in, but I understand the limitation of wanting to catch up on the TBR pile.

        I did get your e-mail, but what I am saying is that I didn’t see this one listed! Otherwise, I would have voted! 🙂

        Ahhh, understood. I’ll have to make the email easier to read. I’ve never been good at email formatting. 🙂
