Planning Stages - BD Re-Read Along
Alright ladies - with the excitement of the release of the trailer, the consensus is that we want a re-read of Breaking Dawn before the movie comes out. Couple of questions to consider before we decide how to work this:
1. Do we want to read all of Breaking Dawn or just up to the "birth" which is what will be covered in the first movie?
2. The movie comes out at the end of the 9th week from now (if we start counting say, Sunday). Should we plan on starting this week coming up?
3. Do we want to just pull summaries from online somewhere (to save having to take the time to write them) and we can just comment? Or would we rather all (those of us participating) just take a chapter set or 2 and write up quick summaries since we've all read the books before?
Facts to note: Approximately 9 weeks. There are 39 chapters. If we are reading the whole book, that will leave approximately 5 chapters a week (with a short list left for the last week since it's a short week) if we read the whole book. If we do up through the birth, we're looking at 18 chapters (to get through the first 2 books - Bella and Jacob) which would leave us about 2 chapters a week. The chapters are pretty easy/short and we've all read this once before so we wouldn't need to be a "thorough" as perhaps with a new story read through. Please put thoughts below and we'll try to decide by say, Friday/Saturday what people want to do and then we can start on say Sunday with reading.
<3 you all,
