Book Study and Discussion

Hey girlz! Remember, a couple of months ago, when I thought of starting a book study? Yeah, well then I kinda “Forgot” about it. BUT – Chelsea, at clubchea.blogspot.com, kindly reminded me. (Thanks, Chel!) And so, here we are.

There are a couple of things that need to be decided, first up. That is –
- What books are we going to be using?
- When are we going to start this study ?
- What about the time difference?
- Who is going to do it?
- Why are we going to do it?
- How is this gonna work?

WHAT BOOKS ARE WE GOING TO BE USING?

I think that I’ll give a few choices on books we could be doing, because last time, we just could not decide!
- ‘Nama Beach High Series, by Nancy Rue
- Christy Miller, by Robin Jones Gunn
- Sierra Jensen, by Robin Jones Gunn
- Diary of a Teenage Girl Series, by Melody Carlson

Of course, if you have a really good suggestion, that we might all like – well, comment it!

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO START?
Hmm. Now, that’s a good question. Once everyone has the same book, isn’t so busy that they can’t participate, and doesn’t have to much school work – well. I’ll suggest some dates, and you girlz comment which ones would suit you? (Just the starting date, remember.)
Btw – these dates are Australian time, so remember that J
August 15th , August 20th , August 30th , September 1st
I just randomly chose those dates – but please tell me which one suits you best!

WHAT ABOUT THE TIME DIFFERENCE?
Okay, so I know a lot of you are in different parts of the world! But I don’t think time difference really matters much at all... I mean, I’ll sort out the post times soon, and when I decide when I’m going to post for the study, I’ll tell you. But if you’re away on that day, you can always catch up – and I’m going to post the links for each study post in the side-bar..

WHO IS GOING TO DO IT?
By that I mean, whose going to participate? Anyone can. And you can really join at any time, but it would probably be best, if you’ve joined this late – to go back, and read all the posts about the book and stuff. (In case that confused you – I haven’t written any yet.
And remember – you don’t have to participate, if you don’t want to. This is just a new blog thing :)

WHY ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS?
Why not? I mean, it’s a way of expressing our love for reading (That is, if you like to read.) Also, if there are certain parts where you don’t really understand, or have questions – or can just totally RELATE to the character? Well, we’ll be talking about that. I don’t want this to be boring for any of us, so be sure to comment your suggestions! :)

Luv,Emii

  1. Yeah! We're finally starting the book study. I'm so excited!!!:) Well, I think that September 1st would work best for me because school will already have started and we will be having our long weekend for Labor Day. Just let me know soon which book we will be studying first and I'll try to quickly find a cheap copy at the store or at the library that I can use for the study. Have a great week!

  2. By the way, emii, could you make me a blog button? I've been wanting one for some time now but I don't know how to do it. Would you consider doing one for me?
    Have a great week!

  3. yay! we're starting the book study!! Like Chelsea, Septemember 1 would work best for me because it's the first day of the next month, and i could have more things sorted then :)

    BTW, who's choosing the book? I mean, I know about all the books except 'nama beach high, and I don't like them... I mean, i like nama beach high, but not the other ones.... sooo, what if that happens with someone else? I mean, the 'nama beach high books have like heaps to do with god (not saying the rest dont, im just saying it's got a really good book study message), and i think it'll work great.. but yeah. depends what the rest think maybe, i guess kinda, lol.

    anyways, I am sooo excited!

  8. That is so cool, Emii! Can't wait for it to start. BTW I've never read any of those books. We could try Lucy, now that the entire series is out, too. And not to impose, but could you try and make me a blog button too? Or at least teach me how to make one? Cause I tried but I didn't understand how to do it... :)

    Abbie =D

  9. I'd like to try reading the Lucy books too, or maybe reading the BLOG ON SERIES, which is also by faithgirlz.

  10. Thanks, Emii!! I think that I would like to have my button be blue and green (since they are my favorite colors) with Philippians 4:8 underneath my blog title. You can do it however you like it just as long as it has those colors and the verse on it. Thanks again!!!

  12. Blog On would be cool too, Bree. I've never read it, but I've heard of it and it sounds cool.

  13. Hey Meredith,
    Oh okay, cool :) thx
    The Lucy Series could be fun too, although they're tween books, I don't know if you, emii, wanted them teen ones or not... but there are tweens here, so it still could work. and those the lucy books aren't like, weird. they're great--I like em, and im a teen:)
