If you’ve read the “about” pages, you’ll know by now that this is a blog written by various people participating in group reads of (usually) big, hard books. But those pages don’t explain how it all works. This one does.
Several people write blog posts about the books being read. Sometimes we add new writers, and sometimes writers drop off the radar. If you’re especially interested in writing for the blog, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do try to keep the list of writers for any given book fairly short, since it can be hard to read both the book and the extra material.
So, if you’re not writing about a book here, how can you participate? There are several ways:
- Comment on what others are writing. We love feedback. This is in theory something of a discussion, after all, and not merely a pulpit.
- Write your own blog. If it’s relevant and coherent, we’ll gladly put a link in the sidebar.
- Spread the word. Tweet the read with hash tags or links back here. Mention the read on Facebook. And so on.
- Track your progress using the Facebook app. This has the added benefit of spreading the word.
That’s about it. Though not everybody’s invited to write blog posts, everybody civil is invited to play along in the comments. Hope to see you there.
