For all of you who are participating in the Blackout read-along that Carrie and I are hosting this month, don’t forget that this week’s final discussion is happening over on Carrie’s blog, Books and Movies. Even though I had been forewarned, I’m a bit disappointed in the ending that’s not an ending, but I’m looking forward to continuing the story in the next book, All Clear (which I just got out of the library). In the meantime, head over to Carrie’s discussion post to read her thoughts on the end (as well as mine, which I will share soon) and contribute your own!
If you’ve finished Blackout then you know we must now read All Clear, which concludes the story. Carrie and I are therefore going to be hosting the All Clear read-along from August 1 to 27.
Here’s the schedule:
August 1 to 5 (post to go up on August 6): pages 3-123 (stop when you get to the chapter headed with this quote: “Don’t leave it to others.”)
August 6 to 12 (post to go up on August 13): pages 124-300 (stop when you get to the chapter headed with this quote: “That won’t be there in the morning.”)
August 13 to 19 (post to go up on August 20): pages 301-470 (stop when you get to the chapter headed with this quote: “Just waiting, waiting, waiting till your number came up…”)
August 20 to 26 (post to go up on August 27): pages 471-641
To join us in this read-along, head over to Books and Movies and sign up using the Mr. Linky at the bottom of Carrie’s post. (Note that the dates for this read-along have been changed; we decided to spread it out over four weeks in the end, rather than six.)
