"Tender is the Night" Deadline
Okay so we’ve been rather silent lately.
If you haven’t gotten the book yet, please try to do so ASAP either through Amazon, your local bookstore, or your local library :)
‘Tender is the Night’ is divided into three ‘books’: Book One, Book Two, & Book Three.
The deadline to complete ‘Book One’ is September 30th.
(If many of us ending up jumping ahead like last time, we may edit this deadline. I’m trying to keep the deadline spaced out though, for those of us now incorporating schoolwork into our schedules.)
Happy reading and be sure to submit or tag any #tiib related items so we can all see what you’re up to!
What's your progress TIIBers?
So, today is our deadline for the completion of Book 1 in “Tender is the Night”.
Where are you guys at?
Finished? Still working on it? Haven’t started? What’s “Tender is the Night”?
I realize many of us are transitioning from summer into school, so I’m definitely expecting things to start out slow.
And I’m sorry for not updating and reminding you guys to get your read on!
I’ll be working on that, and hopefully we can establish a nice rhythm for our reading schedule :)
Also, if you’re wondering, I haven’t started :3
I’M GOING TO START THIS WEEK I SWEAR
What's our next book?
Two Questions for our beloved TIIBers:
Have you finished Looking for Alaska?
Do you have any suggestions for what our next book should be?
(It doesn’t have to be a specific book, it can also just be a genre/author/etc.)
Feel free to give feedback on the next book even if you haven’t finished LfA yet :)
Any other additional comments/questions/suggestions/concerns?
1) Yes. 2) I would be fine if we continued with John Green novels…I honestly don’t care. I’ve been going back through ASoIaF just for fun.
I’m not against reading another JG novel, but I’d like to read something different first. Change it up a bit, keep it fresh, ect, ect :D
Also, I love classic children’s books. So I’d like to propose some of my favorites that I have never read in English? Have you all read The Neverending Story by Michael Ende? Or (and I don’t know if it’s widely available) The Dreams of Jonathan Jabbok by German author Ralf Isau would be something I’d love for everyone to read. It’s a triology, though, and it’s a bit (lot) fantasy, and it has some Judeo-Christian theology in its background, so I’ll understand if you veto :D These are books I’ve already read, but I’ll look into books I’d like to read and make a proposition post… but I’d like to include your propositions as well, so, uhm, either reply to this post or submit something?
I agree with C about reading something else before going into another JG book, and I haven’t read either of those book suggestions so they sound awesome to me!
I’m throwing some suggestions in here from my list of books I want to read as well (though many of you have probably read them):
I wouldn’t mind reading Phantom Tollbooth! I haven’t read that since grade school. I’ve wanted to read Wind in the Willows for a while too :D
OOH WIND IN THE WILLOWS! I wanna read!
The Dreams of Jonathan Jabbok sounds interesting but doesn’t seem to be published in English :(
I’m interested in reading Tender is the Night too.
I also have suggestions of my own(because they’re sitting here in front of me): Stardust by Neil Gaiman and Anansi Boys also by Neil Gaiman
Yeah, I discovered that same problem when I was trying to look up Jonathan Jabbok as well :/
Neil Gaiman! I approve.
So basically every book sounds good and we have no idea.
Maybe I should take a poll?
