DWJ March: Read-Along Announcement!


Thank you to everyone who voted for the DWJ March Read-Along titles! Based on votes and title availability, I've chosen two books for read-alongs next month. So dust off your copies, place your library holds or buy your copies of


Howl's Moving Castle, discussion begins on March 15th

and


A Tale of Time City, discussion begins on March 29th.

To kick-off the fun, I'm giving away two books! Just leave a comment below and I'll choose two winners. This giveaway is open internationally and will be a quick one since I want books to arrive in time for the read-alongs.

Leave a comment that includes either or both book titles (if you list both, I'll ask you to choose one if you win), a promise to participate in the read-along and a way to contact you (email or Twitter name). Winners will be chosen on Tuesday, February 26th. Books will be sent from The Book Depository or Amazon.

Will you be joining either of these read-alongs? They're both rereads for me but I'm very excited about them. I think I might even buy a new copy of Time City for the Ursula K. Le Guin introduction!

Doubling the fun,
K

  1. Hi, I'll join both of the read-alongs, I think I'll use A Tale of Time City for a Sci-fi lit class and I just love Howl's Moving Castle! I have a little comment, though, I'm not using my blog anymore, but I can post through my tumblr [sentencesandmoments (dot) tumblr (dot) com]. My email [caro (dot) echevarria (at) hotmail (dot) com] and twitter [@cariito4e].

    1. Fantastic! It'll be great to have you join in! And I wonder if we'll have any first timers on Howl or all just re-readers who love it? ;)

  2. I don't know that I'll commit to the readalong, but I have A TALE OF TIME CITY on the shelf and I haven't picked it up yet. Is it middle grade level? I could use it for Middle Grade March...

  3. I'll read at least one. Probably it will be Tale of Time City, since it's a lot longer since I last read that one, but I'll decide once March rolls around.

    1. I'm really looking forward to that one. It's been almost three years since I read Time City so it's somewhat vague in my mind now. Glad to have you join!

  4. Oh goody goody goody. I'm so excited about this. Don't enter me, as I own both of these -- although I may not have A Tale of Time City with me here in New York, so I may just do the first readalong -- but I'm very excited to see what everyone has to say about them.
