JOHN ADAMS READ-A-LONG--STARTING POST

After my recent declaration of no longer accepting review books (except in rare cases) and my statement of the desire to read more from my own library, I have decided, current reading obligations aside, that a logical step is to join this read-a-long...because David McCullough's John Adams is one of the books in my personal library...YEAH!

How it Works:
  1. Each week, on Friday, post your thoughts about the previous week’s reading. If you are stuck on what to post about, you can use these discussion questions to get you started. (You do not need to post a starting post, but if you would like to — just post something to let your readers know that every Friday you will be posting about your JA reading for the week.)
  2. Each week, come here, to Unputdownables, and put the link to your post in the comments section (and take a minute to visit others’ blogs to see what they’ve thought of the reading). If you do not have a blog, post your thoughts on the reading directly in the comments section. *please refrain from posting ahead, even if you have read ahead, as to not spoil the book for others*
  3. Feel free to use the read-a-long button from above in your posts or sidebars.
Wish me luck! How about you...want to join us?

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I so wish I didn't have so many other reading obligations this month so I could join you with this one!

  2. Good luck. It's a wonderful book (I read it a few years ago) just make sure not to speed your way through it.
