Reconstructing Amelia (Book Lovers Unite Online Book Club June 2013 pick)


It’s May 24- which means we are 1 WEEK away from the beginning of Book Lovers Unite Online Book Club- in case you did not know, this is a club that I’ve been wanting to begin for some time. Having my own online book club has been a dream for some time- and it’s happening! Book-Alicious Mama is going to co-host (so thankful for having a co-host who’s passionate about reading!)


Ok- here are some guidelines for this month:

1. Read ahead, read along, come in late, whatever- BUT each Friday questions and thoughts for the weeks reading will be posted on Traveling With T. Please only comment about that weeks reading in that post (don’t “spoil” for the readers who are actually reading along (and for anyone who might join later!)

2. You may have seen #bookloversunite being used- as of now, we will not be having a Twitter chat or discussing Reconstructing Amelia on Twitter (at least not a scheduled discussion!) You may wonder why- and this is it: With Twitter we have character length to worry about- and I’d like for us to have a deeper discussion if at all possible.

How will the hashtag #bookloversunite be used? I’m so glad you asked! I’ve made a Pinterest board to post pictures of Reconstructing Amelia (and future Book Lovers Unite Online Book Club choices!) So help a girl out: If you are reading Reconstructing Amelia, take a pic of the book with your coffee, on your bedside table, with your pet posing with the book- whatever (obviously no obscene pictures, though). When you post them to Twitter, use #bookloversunite and you may see that pic on Pinterest!

When each Friday’s questions/thoughts are posted- I’ll post on Twitter and use #bookloversunite.

I’m working on some more surprises- and if/as things happen, you’ll be sure to know!

3. It was asked if we’d have blog buttons to post on each person participating blog- WE WILL. Where are they? I have someone creating them- and as soon as they are finished- then they will be posted. Feel free to “take” them- but please do not use them for your own personal projects.

4. Most importantly- this is to be fun! So, get your book (buy or borrow), and join in on reading Reconstructing Amelia!
