Below is the schedule for current and upcoming Read-a-Longs. Sign-ups to participate in the read-a-longs will be posted a week or two before the starting date. You may want to subscribe to this blog by e-mail or Reader (both options available in the right hand column) so you don’t miss updates and sign-ups.
Want an alert when we’re getting ready to start another read-a-long? Sign up to be added to the e-mail read-a-long reminder list. You will get one e-mail 1-2 weeks ahead of time, alerting you that we are getting ready to start a new read-a-long, and reminding you of the title of the book. You can be removed from the notification list at any time by replying to the latest e-mail from Unputdownables.

New! For this year’s read-a-longs, I’ve changed something (it’s also noted in the ’How it Works’ section). For each read-a-long there will be a correlating giveaway at the end (not necessarily anything fancy, just a little something fun each time), and you will only be eligible to enter if you have completed the entire read-a-long for that particular book. Just a little more incentive to keep on plugging away during those tricky bits!

* = Movie version(s) available to watch after completing the book!
** = Part 1 of the movie will come out while we are reading, we will be more than halfway through at that point, so the book will not be spoiled by watching the newly released movie.
