Classic Reads Book Club - EVENT

Trish from Hey Lady! Watcha Readin', Jen from Devourer of Books, Michelle from Galleysmith, and Heather from A Capricious Reader (and Beth from Beth Fish Reads, though she won’t be participating until 2011) have started a book club.

The Classic Reads Book Club is a quarterly "EVENT" (4 books a year, or 1 book every three months). Trish writes:

Since we’re discussing the book over 3 months, you can dip in and out of the book. You don’t have to worry about having to devote a week or two to one book. Instead, read the assigned portion, and then move on to another book!
The first book up for discussion is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. Here’s the schedule:
  • January 25th – Section 1 (Chapters 1-11)
  • February 8th – Section 2 (Chapters 12-22)
  • February 22nd – Section 3 (Chapters 23-33)
  • March 8th – Section 4 (Chapters 34 – end)
The rest of the rotation through September looks like this:

April - June:
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
July - September:
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
