In a mystical land, far, far away...

I've been trying to write a welcome message for like three hours, but have been hung up on the title and haven't written anything. So, since I'm fairly certain nobody writes a title before they write a book (or in this case, a blog entry), I'm just going to go ahead and write this and hope that a title comes to me before I post.

Now that that rant is over, hello! Paul has basically explained what we're going to do, so I won't bore you with that again. Which means I'm not entirely sure what to write as a welcome message... Thanks, Paul.

Hopefully it won't get too confusing with both of us writing and such, but the different colors should make it easier to follow. Paul's blue, I'm green.

And, since it's July 1st, I guess that means I can officially do a post about which book I chose for this month!


(Edit: I have no idea how to change the colors. I'm such a failure at technology. I'll just be white until it decides to cooperate...)

(Edit 2.0: FIXED IT...)

Once Upon A Time...

Welcome to the A P Book Club!!!

No, not Advanced Placement so if you're looking for an easy way out of reading Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment", you've come to the wrong blog. A is for Ashley. And P is for Paul. That's me. Ashley will add her own welcome message shortly.

We read...a lot...and often we end up sharing books but one of us has always already read it. We thought a book club blog would be a fun way to discuss books as we read them without actually reading the same book at the same time.

We are going to each choose one book a month and then switch! During the second half of the month we will reply to the other person's posts as we read, like we are reading the book at the same pace at the same time.

If we have extra time we will read supplemental books, but only if we have time. Both of us are students, so our time can be limited.

I am super excited to start this and we will see where this goes!!! :)
