We had a great response to our online book group poll! Thank you everyone who voted. There was a 3-way tie for the winner between The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Unit, & A Wizard of Earthsea. We have decided to read all three, staggered throughout June, July, & August. The first one will be The Unit, beginning June 16th, followed by The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society in July, & finally A Wizard of Earthsea. Would you prefer to have weekly reading goals or just read at your own pace?
We'll be posting author biographies, reviews, our thoughts, & other ephemera on the blog during this time & looking for your feedback! If you have questions or want us to look up anything in particular about the book or authors, please don't hesitate to let us know. Additionally, we have created forums for your commentary-on the sidebar, click on the 'abcreads book banter' link to get to the forums. Feel free to comment there at will & add new topics-we only ask that you be courteous to each other in your posts & try to avoid posting spoilers (if you must post spoilers, please add a *SPOILER ALERT* to your post). We encourage you to post all summer long on any of the books.
Magic for Beginners & Going Bovine also got a lot of votes, so while we don't plan to post about them on the blog, we'd like to invite those interested in reading the two books to do so, & comment freely in the forums. We are interested in finding out more about those two books, but we just can't commit to adding anything more to our summer reading load!
We here at abcreads look forward to spending the summer reading together!
