Hello, folks! I have decided to take part in two read-alongs during the month of October.
The first is a read-along of Macbeth, which I guess I’m technically “hosting,” but it will be very informal. The idea came about via a Twitter conversation (as is usually the case) with @Leeswammes and @bibliosue. Anyone who would like to join in, please feel free! Macbeth is a five act play, so we plan to read basically one (or 1+) act each week.
I will have a more formal reading plan posted on October 1st, which is when I plan to begin reading. Macbeth is great fun, so if you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. It’s also PERFECT Halloween reading. You can find additional thoughts and a sign-up widget in Bibliosue’s announcement post, Here.
The second read-along is hosted by Tif at Tif Talks Books. This is for Doctor Sleep, which is the new Stephen King novel, a sequel to his incredibly popular (and awesome) The Shining. Details about this read-along can be found Right Here. We’ll be keeping up with our reading on Twitter, with the hashtag #Sleepalong.
quotes, excerpts and reviews
You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
