It is necessary to register still even for one book and it is $10.00 whether you join for one book or all four. So why not join us for the three remaining!! We are going to be reading “The Hiding Place” for November and December and meet in January. Our book club also has a wiki that we are posting comments about the books we are reading and submitting any book reviews for that wonderful prize of $10.00 gift cards for Amazon or Chapters. If you would like to opportunity to check out our wiki, let me know and I will send you the link. Hope to see you with our next live chat in January!

I have posted under the Blog Roll the link to register for the 2011/2012 Senior High Online Book Club. The deadline for registration is October 10th and our first meeting will be October 19th. More details for the first meeting will be posted on here and also sent to all participants.
Hope to see you on the 19th of October!!
Well, first of all, ours is a bit different because we meet online on Elluminate or Skype decided based upon the number of participants. We will meet once every 6 weeks on an evening during the week tbd. We will chat about the book that we have read, hear what other’s impressions of the book are and overall, just really get into what the book was about and what you thought about it. One of the great new things this year is that there are prizes. Everyone who submits a book review (I will provide an outline if you would like one) will receive a $10. gift card. The cost for the year of book club is $10.00 for HCOS students and any other homeschooler can participate for only $15. for the year. We will have an online sign up on Google docs soon!! I will post the link here as soon as it is ready and talk soon!!!!
I am so excited about our new school year and the new book clubs that are starting in October. I know that I am going to meet some amazing students and we are going to read some awesome books. I am in need of all of you amazing students to help with picking out our 3rd and 4th novel and play. Can you post on the blog your ideas for favourite books and your favourite Shakespearean play? After we have collected a list, we will vote and the popular choices will win. My first additions to the list is “Much Ado About Nothing”for the Shakespearean play and “The Life of Pi” by Yann Martel. Looking forward to hearing from you. You can comment on this post or enter your own post:) Connect again soon!!!

Well, it’s almost a new school year and I am so very excited to start a Senior High Book Club. My name is Mrs. April McLeod, Mrs. Mc for short and I LOVE BOOKS!!! I usually have two or more books going all of the time. I love all kinds of books and I love to chat about them. I enjoy learning things to apply to my life and I enjoy just having a good laugh.
I am hoping to meet lots of new students and share a great adventure in reading some awesome novels. We will start with”The Book of Negroes” and then go on to “The Hiding Place.” Next we will have a vote, after we compile a list of novels of your choice, and decide what we would like to read for the upcoming book. I would like for our final choice of the year to include famous poetry readings. Last thing of the year will be an author reading with a question and answer session. A great year of time reading, discussions, and getting to know some of your peers.
Hope you come along for the ride!!!
