Hey! So Sophia [perksofabookshelf] had a great idea and suggested something where we could take someone's book - with their consent, ofc - and pass it around to each of the people participating. Each person will find a few passages and mark them, or just comment on them - whatever they wish to do. It'll probably be sent around twice so everyone can see the comments. Who else wants to do it? [And the book hasn't been decided yet so if anyone has an idea on what book, write that too. :3]

Sophia Schooler (questionably_chaotic) We should also have different colors other Sophia called purple already (sorry, Philippa) and I called black! We aren't sure what book we will do it with, I was thinking Miss Peregrines since we know about the idea from the beginning of the month. (And we don't know any further than September we should figure that out sometime in early/middle September so people have time to plan for school, events, their TBR, etc)

So we send it to each of the participants' mailing addresses, and each person that gets it marks, and then sends it to the next person.

message 12: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Schooler (questionably_chaotic) Ok, so, by pass the book around, we mean to mail the book to eachother in a circle and we can each mark and comment on passages kind of like sisterhood of the traveling pants where it's passed around to eachother and basically, someone would volunteer to have their book passed around and we would each mark a passage and I think we would pass it around twice so everyone could see all the comments? I think it sounds really fun (it might take a while, but it still sounds cool) and the person whose book it is would get it back in the end, with comments from everyone in the cult


message 13: by Philippa (new)

Philippa Ahhhh this sounds so cool I LOVE IT. I feel like this needs to become a series thing so everyone gets an anotated book ;) AND DAMNIT WHAT DO I DO NOW THAT BOTH PURPLE AND BLUE HAVE GONE?!?!?!


message 14: by Philippa (new)

Philippa I guess I'll go red?


message 15: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (perksofabookshelf) | 29 comments i think we should have a book with loads of feels to enhance the experience as well.


message 16: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Schooler (questionably_chaotic) So basically ATBP


message 17: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Schooler (questionably_chaotic) So basically ATBP


message 18: by Sophia (new)

Sophia Schooler (questionably_chaotic) And also, I'll be posting the discussion for ATBP on the 26th of this month!! (I think that's a good day)


message 19: by Philippa (new)

Philippa 26th it is!
I think the person who's book it is should het to choose what they want to send out, so not necessarily one with lots of feels but one that they think everybody should read?


message 20: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (perksofabookshelf) | 29 comments Yay, we should totally start planning this


message 21: by Philippa (new)

Philippa We should - i am trying to work out the route but Trinidad and Argentina make it a bit more tricky... Could you guys (by which i mostly mean Sian and Mica) find out where it's cheapest for you to post to out of UK/USA/Trinidad/Argentina please? Then I'll take it from there :)


message 22: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (perksofabookshelf) | 29 comments I get that. I just want to make sure it doesn't get forgotten because I'm kind of like super excited lol. we could maybe have the book get sent out in the end of September/ beginning of October? idk, i know we don't really need to be planning THAT far ahead in advance


message 23: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 27 comments This is a fantastic idea! I didn't see this thingy until now so I apologize for my lateness but I am totally on board! If you guys want i can just go buy the book we decide to use? We should use a paperback because it might be lighter to ship if it goes by weight. Idk. I don't know shipping things haha

message 25: by Philippa (new)

Philippa Definitely paperback yeah! Hardback would be way more expensive and yes for Rachel/Lydia discovering stuff about unis
And don't worry Sophia there is NO chance this will get forgotten because it's such an awesome idea


message 26: by Mica (new)

Mica (hedalesmics) | 3 comments Sorry I am this late! I have plenty of things to do for school but finally I can check this. I think it's a pretty good idea, actually, and yeah I could search for the cheapest way to send books abroad here :) And for the colors, can I pick orange?

Please look it'd be mega helpful!
And yeah orange works :)


message 28: by Philippa (new)

Philippa We're going to run out of colours soon me thinks


message 29: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 27 comments Haha yeah I was gonna say maybe we could have like different shades of a color for different people. Im not saying that right.. I mean one person could have light pink and another could have hot pink.


message 30: by Philippa (new)

Philippa Light blue and dark blue
Different shades of green
Yeah that would be a good idea... Maybe we need to write our names in our colour at the front of the book(s?) as reference ;)


message 31: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 27 comments That's a good idea!


message 32: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 27 comments If sparkles were a color that's what I would pick haha


message 33: by Danielle (new)

Danielle | 27 comments By the way, I wanted to thank all of you that started this book club! I've always wanted to do something like this but just never had the opportunity. I'm enjoying the book even more so knowing that other people are reading along with me.


message 34: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (perksofabookshelf) | 29 comments Yea I figure we could put a log of everyone in the front, along with the date maybe and our own color. We could also like rate the book in the back or put our final thoughts

message 39: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (perksofabookshelf) | 29 comments We could maybe use stickers but idk if they will stay through it all. Optional I guess*

message 41: by Lydia (new)

Lydia (thesparklywriter) | 14 comments oh and we'll have to figure out a route kind of thing, like whose going to post it to who. (this is such a cool idea! I'm far too excited)
