Re-post: First Book Club Read

I'm re-posting this from Omani Book Mania Check out the site for more info on this.


With the Harry Potter movies coming to an end in July 15th I thought it’d be fun to read (or re-read in the majority’s case) The Deathly Hallows book together. For those of you who are as excited as I am, you’ll enjoy re-reading again, only this time with your favourite peeps online.


So how does this work?

We’ll start reading on the 13th of June, an opening post will be put up to announce the beginning of the challenge. I’ve divided the 35 chapters in 3 weeks. Meaning: 5 chapters in 3 days. On the third day, a post by one of us will be put up reviewing what he/she thought of the chapters, asking questions for you all to interact and comment on what you’ve discovered/learned or liked in these 5 chapters. To make it easier for all of us and in order to understand the arrangement of the days and chapters, I made this calendar (Which, I hope, is clear)


How is this different?

Well for one, we’re all reading together at the same. Second, we’ll be reading and sharing our comments on the go.

This is my first time arranging a book club and without you guys, your willingness and contribution, this thing would not work. This is just an idea, I can’t go on about it without your support and input. Thus I’d really appreciate if you would tell me beforehand if you’re willing to step in and be consistent with the group. If you’ve read The Deathly Hallows before and do not intend on reading it again, do come in to add your comments, discuss and let us know your thoughts. If you’ve not read the book, then hey, it’s a fun activity during your summer!

Leave a comment if you want to participate and if you have any suggestions or ideas, don’t hesitate to e-mail me on: omanibookmania@gmail.com

Please spread this message around, re-post, share the link, tweet it, email it, for all those bookworms out there who haven’t read the book or want to re-read it again. We want to make this happen and you can help us.

Great idea...weird but great! :)

^ In what way is it weird?

The Linoleum Surfer said...

Just would feel strange to me to read to a schedule and talk about it live online. Maybe it's better to say "innovative"!

Anyway, great idea to get more people into reading and appreciating (although I'd aim a bit higher with the books!)

Hope you don't think I was being rude...

No worries. This is just a start and since I knew a lot of online friends who would want to read this book I thought to start with something that I have the approval of a reasonable number of people. Our next read though will go through a voting period for more people (like yourself) to join. I'd appreciate it if you could send in your suggestions for the next reads titles.

I love the idea...love your little chart...love your level of organization.

If I was into Harry Potter I would definitely join in! I'll wait for your next selection though. :) I'll definitely be happy to read away with you!

Hi, can you send me a text? I lost your number when I broke my nice new phone and went back to the old one:(

Ameena: Can't wait for our next month's read. Would definitely e-mail you about it.
Princess: will text you first thing tomorrow.
