IT - #SummerofIT Read-Along - Revised reading schedule


I'm failing so miserably at this read-along. Go figure. (This book is daunting) I'm trying to figure out a way to revise the schedule while still keeping it the Summer of IT. Here goes:

Previous schedule:
  • Start reading on June 1st
  • In June, read Part 1: The Shadow Before, Derry: The First Interlude, and Part 2: June of 1958 - Pages 3 - 433
  • Discussion on Friday, June 30th - no set time. Just stop by here, or at the Facebook group event any time that day (or later on, if you get behind)
  • In July, read Derry: The Second Interlude, Part 3: Grownups, Derry: The Third Interlude, and Part 4: July of 1958 - Pages 435 - 878
  • Discussion on Monday, July 31st - no set time. Just stop by here, or at the Facebook group event any time that day (or later on, if you get behind)
  • In August, read Derry: The Fourth Interlude, Part 5: The Ritual of Chud, Derry: The Last Interlude, and Epilogue: Bill Denbrough Beats The Devil (II) - Pages 879 -1138 (end)
  • Final discussion on Thursday, August 31st - no set time. Just stop by here, or at the Facebook group event any time that day (or later on, if you get behind)
Parts 1 through 4 make up the bulk of the book so I miscalculated the time needed (at least for busy slowpokes, like me). The last section is only 259 pages so this reading schedule revision makes more sense.

Revised schedule:
  • Read in June, July, and August 1 - 15 - Part 1: The Shadow Before, Derry: The First Interlude, and Part 2: June of 1958 - Pages 3 - 433

    AND
  • Derry: The Second Interlude, Part 3: Grownups, Derry: The Third Interlude, and Part 4: July of 1958 - Pages 435 - 878
  • Discussion on Wednesday, August 16 - no set time. Just stop by here, or at the Facebook group event any time that day (or later on, if you get behind)
  • August 16 - August 31, read Derry: The Second Interlude, Part 3: Grownups, Derry: The Third Interlude, and Part 4: July of 1958 - Pages 435 - 878
  • Discussion on Friday, September 1 - no set time. Just stop by here, or at the Facebook group event any time that day (or later on, if you get behind)
Reminder Discussion will take place in our Gather Together and Read group on Facebook.

I will also post a discussion post here on the blog for those who are not on Facebook.
