Adventures In Letters Book Club

Starts February 5, 2012

This is something we’ve wanted to do for a reallllllly long time.  So here we are, finally, announcing the creation of the Adventures In Letters Book Club.
Here’s the dealio. I’ve made a facebook group where we will be posting polls to help choose upcoming books. You can link up and chat there if you’d like. If you are not on facebook, leave your vote as a comment. 

You can sign up for our awesome newsletter and each month you will get an email with our choice for the next month, along with some other bloggy stuff. Or you can subscribe to our blog (or twitter or facebook or whatever) and just keep an eye out for the posts. 

We will post a non spoilery discussion post at the beginning of the month (where you can announce your intention to participate) with some history and interesting tidbits about the book we’ve chosen. I’ll also stick some questions in there for your brain to mull over while you read. 

The book will be divided into chunks and read over a 3 to 6 week period, depending on length. Each week, we’ll post a couple of questions and our thoughts on what’s happened so far. Remember to put up a big ole spoiler warning up for your readers if you post this on your blog!!

You can link up your posts in the comments or just write what you think right there or on facebook!
We will also be having chats on twitter using the hashtag #lettersbc. Please keep these as spoiler free as possible, you don’t want to ruin the book for other people. 

There is a group button which you should feel free to steal and share, stick it in your sidebar, or ignore it completely. I hope you join us! We will be choosing the first book over the next couple of weeks and reading will commence the first Sunday of February (the 5th). 

We've chosen our first book, The Tiger's Wife. Our sections and discussions will be:

February 12: Chapters 1-4 inclusive
February  19: Chapters 5-8 inclusive
February  26: Chapters 9-13 inclusive

Our The Tiger's Wife post can be found here

Voting for our next book begins February  12.
