SEI Read Along Dates, Times, and Chapters

Welcome back!

Thank you for voting in the poll. As you can see, Wednesday nights and Sunday nights are the top two choices. We'll meet Wednesday nights at 9:00pm EST to read one chapter. Sunday nights will begin at 7:00pm EST to read two chapters. I have two hours sectioned off for Sunday night's two chapter read, but I'm sure it won't take anywhere near that long. I also chose to move Sunday night's read along time to 7:00pm (instead of 9:00pm) so as not to interfere with anybody's True Blood viewing.

The read along begins one week from today.

I created a calendar to help keep track of what days, times, and chapters we're up to. If you like, feel free to contact me (Twitter, Email) with your email address. I can input it into the calendar, and it will automatically send you reminder notices.

If you have any questions, feel free to use any of the above (or my personal Twitter) to contact me.

See you guys in one week! :D

Starry Eyed Inside Read Along

Hey, all!

First off, thank you so much for taking interest in this read along. Starry Eyed Inside is a fandom staple and one of my personal favorites. I can't wait to start my yearly summer read of this amazing story with you guys. :)

With the amount of chapters (28 story chapters + 1 EPOV), we'll need to read 3 chapters a week. I think two days a week for the read along would be best. Because Labor Day is considered the end of the summer, I'd like to have the read along completed the Sunday before. This leaves us with a start date in the last week of June.

10 weeks of Starry Eyed Inside... :)

In trying to determine what would be the best days and time to hold the read along, I figured it would be best let you guys decide. So, to the left of this post is a poll. Choose as many days and times convenient to you (all times are EST). The top TWO choices will be our read along times. I've left Tuesday night off the list so it doesn't interfere with TwiFicTrivia. I don't anticipate any read along session to take more than an hour, even those in which we read two chapters to stay on schedule.

The poll closes Sunday night (June 9, 2013) at 6:00pm EST. I'll create a calendar with days, times, and chapters once the read along times have been determined.

PLEASE spread the word about the read along. The more people that take an interest, the more successful it'll be. It's a great opportunity to re-read this amazing story or to read it for the first time and find out what all the fuss is about.

The read along has a Twitter account (@SEIreadalong), which will send out reminders and act as the main contact for any questions. I'll also use this account to tweet quotes, lines, and feels once the read along begins, as well as RTing tweets from those participating and using the hashtag.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here or tweet the read along account.

See you guys soon!
