Who is coordinating, and what are we going to read?

And before anyone says anything I am not volunteering, I am just curious.wink

Lauri E. stuck her head up above the firing line ... and sure enough, she was nominated and was gracious enough to accept !! 

The book is The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiana.

Yep...it's me!

I'll be putting up some threads for the chapter breakdowns in a couple of weeks, closer to the end of the month.

Since this is my first time leading, I'll throw a question out there to the veterans...how do you break up the book into chunks for the threads? By a certain number of chapters, by a certain number of pages, or by some other logical parts I'm not thinking of?

Any guidance would be welcome!

@Lauri, now that books come in so many formats, it's a bit of a challenge to chunk them. My personal opinion is that chapter breakdowns work best because the chapter numbers are the same whether the book is in print, audio or electronic form. Thanks again for doing this!
