The Hobbit Group-Read!


Hello, Writers’ Bloc People! We (finally) start our first ever group-read!

Here’s the schedule:

Week 1: Aug 14th to Aug 19th : Chapter 1 to 6

Week 2: Aug 20th to Aug 25th : Chapter 7 to 12

Week 3: Aug 26th to Aug 31st : Chapter 12 to 19

That makes it an average of about 100 pages or so every week.

We have decided to hand over the discussion to two readers every week – one who is reading the book for the first time, and another who already has – just to cover all bases. So far, Matt Watson has graciously accepted to steer the conversation in the second week, and Inkeri has volunteered as well. Since both of them haven’t read it, though (aren’t you glad we’re finally cattle-prodding you into it?), Inkeri might probably take over week three, along with somebody else who has already read this. Volunteers, anyone?

For those of you leading the discussion every week, remember, we’re handing over the reins to you. You can dial up the crazy and ask us whatever you want – anything at all that strikes you while reading the book. About four questions from each volunteer would be perfect. Please and thank you!

Discussions will be held here, on the blog, on the 19th, 25th and 31st. We’ll put up the questions the night before so that you’ll have time to think about them. (Volunteers, you know what that means! Send them in at writersbloc(dot)blog(at)gmail(dot)com )

Alright, then. That’s about it, I think. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. And if you are taking part in the group-read, just add your blog url to the Mister Linky below, or just leave us a link in the comments!

Happy reading!
