Lately, I have been very enthusiastic and optimistic about my reading. One activity I have seen a lot on other blogs and twitter is read-a-longs. Basically a book is selected and divided up into sections. Deadlines are assigned as to when certain sections of the book must be completed, people blog, comment, and tweet about the experience. I want to be more active in the blogging community and thought it would be fun, so I decided to join the 'Posessesion' read-a-long which I heard about from Care (Care's Online Book Club).
The challenge is hosted by Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness) and Lu (Regular Rumination). I met the first timeline for which I still need to post and am behind on the second; yet, I read on with optimism and determination! Reading schedule is below and I will post links to my progress as I get to it or just notes about how I am doing with the book. If you are interested in joining the fun, you can sign up here. You can also talk about the book on any of the blogs of participants and on Twitter using the hashtag #readbyatt.
- March 11: Chapters 1 – 6: Completed on Sunday, March 10th. Thankful story got more interesting after the first chapter. You can see Kim and Lu's recaps here and here.
- March 18: Chapter 7 – 13: I am just about a week behind as I finished this section on Sunday, March 24th. It is getting much saucier and more tense. You can see Kim and Lu's recaps here and here.
- March 25: Chapter 14 – 19: I finished this section and the next one close together. Chapter 19 was a game changer. You can see Kim and Lu's recaps here and here.
- April 1: Chapter 20 – End: I finished this section the night before the deadline. My final review is here.
