First book*EDIT FOR NEW PEOPLE WHO WANT TO JOIN*

Alright! We have a book for the first month!
Click HERE to read about the book club and join in!! (all you have to do is add your name to the list and read and post every week once we start. If you don't want to read every book, you don't have to! It's just for fun and to have people to talk about the same book with!)
We are going to start on the first of April. We will read 100 pages a week. If people can't keep up then we can switch it for the following month. As of right now we will check in on Thursdays just because the 1st is a Thursday, lol.

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
(Won with almost half the votes ending with 6)

What it's about.....

Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie's father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church.

The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story of love on many levels--first love, love between parents and children -- that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that love can break our hearts...and heal them.

so i bought this for my ereader... but question?? Should we just pick a chapter to get to?? Cause my "pages" are numbered the same as in the book lol

KK said...

Bri- I went through the book and they happen to end on a new chapter on each hundred (or with in a page) so I will post for sure when we are reading on where to stop.

Jes said...

This is completely off topic, but have you ever heard the song "Sink or Swim" by Tyrone Wells? If not, you should definitely check it out! Every time I come to your blog I start singing that song in my head!

KK said...

Jes- YES I HAVE! I love that song! I had it playing on here for a while...but took the music off. I think I might add just that song back.

mommymichael said...

so was this one chosen because it's going to be a movie?

with miley cyrus no less.

KK said...

Michael- I didn't pick it, everyone had 3-4 days to vote on which book they wanted and this one won (I wanted a different one...lol)

I won't be the one choosing the books everyone will vote every month. I will add a few from the last round and I will take sugestions from people on books they feel would be good to be read.
