Read-Along: The Details




We're going to visit our favorite characters and we want YOU to come along with us!

That's right! During the month of April, we are hosting a month long read-along of the most incredible series in the world. Scratch that...the most incredible series in the UNIVERSE! We'll laugh, we'll cry, we'll swoon, we'll cry. And then we'll cry some more. (Participants are responsible for bringing their own tissues to each of their reading sessions.)

The read-along schedule we'll be following is posted below. (And also listed on the calendar on the right sidebar.) Please note that the chapters listed are the chapters that our guest posters will be discussing on the listed day so stop by every day, fill us in on your progress and join in on the discussions.

The read-along is purposefully ending right before Jen D. and I head off to Kansas City, MO for a book convention and TEAM KILT CON!  Team Kilt Con is May 5, 2013, and this read-along is going to get us all refreshed for the big day.  For those of you won't be attending Team Kilt Con this year, don't you worry one bit. We've got a special something planned for you, too. Wanna know what it is?

Jeri Smith-Ready will be chatting with us during the evening of Wednesday, May 8.  HOORAY! We'll surely be posting more details, like a TIME, when we firm that up with Jeri, but clear your calendars for this special event right now.

Just to make things a little more exciting (because clearly potato bins, rivers and music concerts aren't exciting enough. *rolls eyes*) we'll be doing a giveaway of mediocre proportions! Details and methods of entry for the giveaway will be tracked on THIS POST. Bookmark that sucker because you'll be visiting it often. We hope.

Drop us a note in the comments and let us know you're joining us.  Oh, AND BRING FRIENDS! Let's get 10 new people reading this series next month! Do you think we can do it? I think we can! (Here's a special giveaway for those of you who bring a friend to the read-along!)

Let us know if you have any questions. Can't wait to read the Shade series with you all next month!





PS -- If you need to purchase copies of the books, here are links to Red Balloon Bookshop (our local indie store), Amazon and B&N.

  7. ...Wow. Team Kilt Con is on the same day as my chorus concert so I can't go and the chat with Jeri is on the same night as Honor Society!! Ughhhhhhh! I'll be trying to keep up with as much of the read-along as possible, but I'm taking six AP tests the beginning of May and things are crazy right now trying to get ready for them. I'm sorry! And I love you guys you're so awesome for doing something like this! Hope everyone has a great time!
