I’ll be reading at a pace of 1 book per month. The series includes 14 books (well, the ones written by Baum anyway). I am a firm believer in the “you do you” school of book blogging. If you want to read faster or slower than that, it’s totally up to you. This read-along is really all about having fun with some classic children’s books!
You can see my official read-along page with the schedule and brief summaries of each book here:
How can you participate? It’s really up to you! Personally, I will be posting a brief review + discussion topic each month after reading a book in the series. You can join in the discussion in the comments on my blog, post about the book on your own blog, share your thoughts on the Lone Star on a Lark Facebook page, @ me on Twitter, spill your feelings into your diary, etc.
But that is a lot of books, what if I do not have the money/space for all this? First of all, go to your freakin’ library. Also, these Oz books are all in the public domain in the United States, which means you can usually find reprints for cheap — or you can just read them for free online (legally) at the Internet Archive or Project Gutenberg or similar sites.
Want to be included in that participants list? Please leave a comment on this post with a link to (a) your own blog page where you will track your reading, (b) your blog tag or category for read-along posts, or (c) a Goodreads shelf or LibraryThing collection/tag or similar.
(Please do not add links for individual book review posts. This is meant to be an “umbrella” link that can be included on the official read-along page.)
Not tracking your reading online? That’s totally fine, too — just comment with the name/alias you’d like to be known as on the participants list instead.
