Read-a-Long, Read-a-Thon, Write-a-Thon News
TuesBookTalk Read-a-longs on Twitter (@tuesbooktalk #tuesbooktalk) and on Goodreads has chosen literary/general fiction for our November read. We have chosen the Pulitzer Prize winning novel Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. Our first discussion is Tuesday, November 6 on Twitter at 9:30pm EST/8:30pm CST. You do not have to join us on Twitter. Feel free to share your thoughts in the Goodreads group if you can't make the chat on Twitter. Get the full reading schedule HERE. I apologize for being a bit late with this announcement, but this book is less than 300 pages long so it seems a manageable read. Each section is only about 60 or so pages long. I do hope you will join us!
Wallace at Unputdownables is hosting a read-a-long of The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Doesn't she rock!? I really wanted to read it again before I see the film in December. If you'd like to join in, you can find out all the details HERE.
I'm hoping to join in on this, but it's only a month long and I'm not sure if I can read such a daunting book in such a short time. I did want to read it before the film comes out so this is a tentative statement of intent to participate. =O) Look for more details soon at Historical Tapestry.
Melissa at Must Read Faster is hosting her birthday read-a-thon next weekend, November 10 and 11. No official button yet, but I've offered to make her one so we'll see if she takes me up on it. =O) Full details HERE.
Sit Down and Write 2 is coming in a little over a week! A write-a-thon that I think is a great companion to NaNoWriMo. But it's not just for novel writers. Do you have a bunch of reviews to catch up on? You can do it during Sit Down and Write! I'm hosting over at my writing blog, Stories Inside. All the details and sign up info are HERE. Hope you will join me!
