Discussing Admission

AdmissionAs I’ve mentioned before, I won a copy of Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz from Hachette Books for a buddy read with Jennifer at The Literate Housewife.

The time has come, and we’re reading and discussing it on Twitter this week.  We’ve each read the first 8 chapters, and tonight we’ll talk about how this book started out for us, what we think it will be, where it looks like it is going.

On Sunday, we’ll have finished the book and will wrap up our conversation.

Join us, whether or not you’ve read the book!

Follow @bookingit and @lithousewife, and track hashtag #Admission to follow along.  (I suggest using Tweetchat for this and any other chats).  We’ll be tweeting tonight (Wednesday) at 6pm PST, and finishing up on Sunday, again at 6pm PST.

We’ll be posting summaries and/or transcripts on our blogs if you can’t make the chat.

I’m looking forward to a good conversation, and hope you can join us.
