How About Another Read Along... HUGE? [Read Along] #HUGEreadalong

I was recently informed that ABC Family has another series debuting this summer based on a YA novel, HUGE by Sasha Paley.  We just wrapped up our Read Along for Pretty Little Liars and had a lot of fun, so think it'd be fun to do another read along before this show debuts.  Last time, we didn't feel like we gave enough time for you guys to acquire a copy of the book, so we're going to schedule this Read Along for June 20-26, right before the show debuts on June 28th.  Do you think that's enough time to get a copy of the book?
April's been saving all year to afford Wellness Canyon (aka Fat Camp) and she can't wait to start losing weight. Wil's wealthy health-nut parents are forcing her to go to the camp, but Wil is determined to get revenge by gaining weight. They're supposed to work together to meet their weight-loss goals. But Wil's leading April on "hikes" to 7-Eleven, April's relentless pep is driving Wil to hit her secret stash of Godiva, and soon they're both crushing on the same guy. With April as committed to the cause as Wil is determined to undermine the system, this summer's going to be about more than just counting calories....
Here's the reading plan:  There are 42 chapters.  7 days.  6 chapters per day.  That averages to just under 40 pages per day.  There are a total of 272 pages in the book.  Doable?  Leave your name and email address below (email is private, link is optional and public) to sign up to participate:

Also, HUGE is available for purchase in paperback from these online retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depo, Borders, Changing Hands.

If you're planning to participate, grab this button and put it on your blog to help spread the word, tweet about this (#HUGEreadalong), or share this on Facebook!  The more, the merrier!  Also, if you have a suggestion for a book you'd like us to host a Read Along for, just leave it in the comments section, or email us!

Sounds great!Don't count me in yet though, because I might not be in Athens at the time, so no computer.I'll let you know.
It's super cool that you're doing another read along.And thnx for the info on Huge.I have no idea that there will be another series based on a YA book. *Ahem*I guess that's why they canceled Legend of the Seeker, to cut back on expenses. Arghhhh!*ahem*
