The Endling Reading Schedule

Hello Fellow Book Club Members!

As of now we have 21 confirmed members and a handful of maybes! That’s amazing! Last year we had about 10 kids. I’m so happy to see our summer book club grow!

Here is the plan:

-I’ll set out a reading schedule and comment prompts (you may comment about other things if you want!)

-You read whenever you want, but try to finish the assigned reading by the date given if you can

-Make a post on the blog (you can subscribe if you want, or just check in each week/every few weeks to read what others have posted)

-Please don’t give anything about the book away (if you’re not sticking to our schedule)

-Feel free to connect with each other over the blog comments. Share where you’re reading…it’s akways so fun to know where you are and what you’re up to! I’m going to reread the book (since I read it pretty quickly during my pre-read), and I’ll guarantee that most of the time I’ll be on the dock or in the hammock!

-If the book gets too difficult for you please ask your parents to read it to you. Don’t worry about the “made up” words…I struggle with those too!

Still need the book?

-McNally Robinson has some on back order

-audiobook and e-reader versions are available through iTunes

-as of today (June 28) here is what’s available at Chapters/Indigo

So here is our reading schedule!

-Start reading now or as soon as you get the book!

    Luca Chiappetta is joining the book club too! I wasn’t sure how to let you know as I missed seeing you today at school. Thank you for making this open for all the students this summer. Jenn

    I found myself not being able to put Endling down. Byx is the perfect main character! She likes to do things her own way, she has a low self esteem and loves to explore! I can totally see her becoming a hero…

    I like Byx because she is very brave. I like all the characters because they are fearless. The book is very scary but I like it.
