    Neener Book Club Peeps!

    Advertisements
    I am looking for 3 people who would be interested in doing a special book review/project for The Huffington Post.

    The book is called "What It Is Like To Go To War" and is by Karl Marlantes. The Huffington Post would mail you a copy of the book and you will be asked to provide your personal thoughts and opinions on their forum (Book Club : Pictures, Videos, Breaking News) as well as twitter if you have it, and even blog post on their site if you are interested in that!

    The most important thing for them is that they get thoughts and insight from those who are going through what the book is about.

    If you are interested in this opportunity please comment below and I will message you. We are requesting that the 3 people who participate be active on MSOS (35+% activity), have been a member 6+ months, and have over 350 posts.

    If you have already read the book or want to purchase it on your own, you are also invited to participate in the discussions!

    *Dates... Understandably we are coming in the middle of this, but just so you have an idea*

    Sunday April 1st - Chapters 1 & 2 (Temple of Mars, Killing)
    Sunday April 8th - Chapters 3 & 4 (Guilt, Numbness and Violence)
    Sunday April 15th - Chapters 5, 6 & 7 (The Enemy Within, Lying, Loyalty)
    Sunday April 22nd - Chapters 8 & 9 (Heroism, Home)
    Sunday April 29th - Chapters 10 & 11 (The Club, Relating to Mars, Afterword)

    Im working on getting some info about when they ideally want the book read by and input in the discussions so that you all have a better idea of that as well.

    ing for you!

    I want to read the book but I am so not an eloquent writer. So I will pass on participating.

    What a neat opportunity, though!
    Follow me on Instagram, if you'd like.

    I so would if I knew I could be reliable! We're moving in about a week. Well, less. I might pick it up on my own and read it, though.

    Not in cruelty,
    Not in wrath,
    The Reaper came today;
    An Angel visited this gray path,
    And took the cube away.
