Last week I revealed my very first Summer book club book, and hopefully by now most of you have either bought, borrowed, or downloaded a copy of Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants. I can't wait to start discussing Jacob Jankowski's trip down memory lane to his days working for the circus. To kick us off, let's all spend week one reading chapters 1—5 of the novel. I'm here to be your guide, but I really want to hear your input, so as you read, be sure to post your talking in my community group so we can keep the forum open and ongoing. Then, next week I'll round up my thoughts and yours so we can continue to dissect and chat about the first portion of the book before moving on. Sounds easy enough, right? Now get reading!
