Discussions for section 1 of the novels went beautifully. Thank you all for your wonderful contributions. Please make sure you are keeping up with all the due dates and contact me right away if you are falling behind for any reason. There's not a lot of time to catch up, as we need everyone on the same page (literally!).
R8A is very happy to be hosting the DigLitCirc discussions this week. All should be done commenting on the section one discussion questions and reading section 2 of their novels. Get ready for the second section discussions!
The hosts are:

-welcome all your group members by name (hyperlink to their blogs)
-give info: book title, author, section read (chapter numbers)

-post your thought-provoking question
-put a comment on your own post, answering your question
