Gearing Up For A Pretty Little Liars Read Along! [Read Along] [Announcements]

I'm really excited about our Pretty Little Liars Read Along! If you missed the announcement, check out the original post and sign up to join us. You still have time to stop by the bookstore and pick up a copy of the book and read along with us. We're doing five chapters per day, starting this Sunday, the day after tomorrow.

If you've already read the book and want to join in the discussion, we'd love to have you. Just stop by every day next week and add your two cents to the posts!

Here's a sense of what the post's format will look like:
Pretty Little Liars Read Along Day One {chapters 1-5}

Plot Summary: (I'll write a little plot summary here to help those of you who have read and don't know what happens in which chapters, and for those of you who get carried away and read ahead!)
Discussion Points (1-2)
Characters:
Discussion Points (1-2)
Controversy:
Discussion Point if applicable
Predictions:
What I think will happen next, and then we can discuss. Also a place for you to make your predictions and tell me how wrong I am.
If you have anything that you'd like to add to the format or you think would be better arranged or whatevs, just comment or send me an email. We're new at this Read Along thing and totally open to criticism and suggestions. I promise we won't be mad if you tell us something sucks about this process or that we're doing something the dumb way!

Each post will go up at midnight Arizona time, and all posts will stay open forever to comments in case you get behind, 'cause we know life happens.  We still want you to come and discuss with us though if you get behind.  I'll be hanging out in the comments all day, and am totally interested in what you guys have to say.

If you have any questions about this Read Along, let me know in the comments section or by emailing me and I'll both answer you and update this post with the question and answer. Thanks for trying this out with me guys!
