Announcement: Andrew Smith Saturdays! Read-A-Long @marburyjack @MacKidsBooks

To quote Andrew Smith, this summer, heads will explode.

You heard that right! Four book bloggers are taking a trip into the incredible, exciting and frightening territory known as Andrew Smith’s mind. We hope you will join Smash Attack Reads, Not Now...I’m Reading, Roof Beam Reader and Lady Reader’s Bookstuff on this journey!

This will be a 4 month read-a-long featuring one of Andrew’s books each month as a celebration for his new release, Passenger, the sequel to The Marbury Lens, which is due out on October 2, 2012.


May 12: Major Announcement to include the breakup of chapters for entire event. We have decided for the designated blog to host the discussion for the designated book, instead of a traditional read-a-long where people post answers to questions on their own blogs and link up to host blog. This will keep things streamlined and the discussion easier to follow.

June: In the Path of Falling Objects (Hosted by Lady Reader’s Bookstuff)
Saturdays: 6/2, 6/9, 6/16, 6/23, 6/30

July: Stick (Hosted by Roof Beam Reader)
Saturdays: 7/7, 7/14, 7/21, 7/28

August: Ghost Medicine (Hosted by Not Now...I’m Reading)
Saturdays: 8/4, 8/11, 8/18, 8/25, 8/31

September: The Marbury Lens (Hosted by Smash Attack Reads)
Saturdays: 9/8, 9/15, 9/22, 9/29, 10/6

Aside from awesome reading material and mind-fuckery, there will be prizes, interviews and fun things for all. So put that library card or credit card to good use and get prepared for four months of awesome!

Where to buy:

Please join us in celebrating the amazing Andrew Smith!
