The books chosen based on popular votes are here along with the planned dates for chapter readings! If you want, you can open your book, ebook, or audiobook and start right now! I will be posting in this channel every week as a reminder of what chapters you should be on as well as a reminder for every VC session for discussion. I will be hosting the discussion on the last Saturday of every reading month at 2:00 PM EST time. I hope you'll be able to catch at least one!

Even if you are unable to join one of those sessions, know that for all the Summer Book Club channel is always open on the Discord for chatting. All we ask is that you please remember to put any spoilers in spoiler tabs with warnings if the group has not reached that part of the book. Otherwise, we encourage all the activity for it in the channel, book comments, pointed details discovered, memes, etc.

If anyone needs a copy of any of the books, PM me and I will be happy to share one you can use on an electronic device.


HAPPY READING!

Today is the last day to finish Ariadne! Please post all your thoughts in the Discord Summer Book Club channel.

Tomorrow we begin "Under the Whispering Door". It definitely has a few chuckles from me already.

As we're reaching the end of this reading week, I have news to say that I will no longer be planning to hosts VC parties every Saturday but only on the final Saturday of each book's reading schedule!
