The Writing Follies Start of Summer Read-a-Thon



We have decided to challenge ourselves and host own little read-a-thon. We’ve picked out six books, and beginning today, we’ll try to read all of them by June 11th.  Since we each have three books, we will be switching with each other on Tuesday. We each picked three questions for each other to guide on which books we are reading. The books are:


  • An Identity Book- a book about a different culture, religion, or sexual orientation

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie and Ellen Forney
