This Monday, the first entry in the book club reading of What Color Is Your Parachute? will be posted, so if you’re interested in participating, you might want to dig out your copy. I will be reading the 2008 edition of the book, but the changes from earlier editions are pretty minimal and you should be able to pretty easily follow along no matter what edition you have. If you’re not sure about participating, read my review of the book and it may help you make up your mind.
The schedule I plan on having nine entries in this edition of the book club, one a week for nine weeks. These will always go up on Mondays, so that you can read the piece on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon. I plan on spending two weeks (i.e., two entries) on the first part of the book, two on the second part, and five on the last part because I think the writeups for the last part will be far more involved and interesting. This book is a quick read, with lots of pictures and such, so don’t be shy if it seems like I’m suggesting a lot of pages to read in a week. It averages out to well under ten a day, and many of those pages are littered with images.
Ready? The first entry, to be posted on Monday, will cover chapters one through four, up to page 59 in my 2008 edition of the book. It’s about fifty pages, but very lightly written and with a healthy dose of pictures. Try reading a chapter a night and you’ll be good to go!
