Voting is over!

Our first voting session has ended! It was quite successful, thank you all for voting!!

With 19 votes, Across the Universe by Beth Revis comes in first place! We will be reading this book first so everyone who would like to participate in the read-a-long of this book would want to go ahead and obtain the book via library, ordering it, bookstore, borrowing it, or whatever other way you have to obtain the book. I would also go ahead and start reading the book when you obtain it because May is fast approaching. Take notes or remember things that you'd like to talk about and you can make video responses or talk about what you read in the comments of the discussion videos for the book once we get started.

The second place winner with 9 votes is Gone by Michael Grant!! This will be the second book that we will star mid-May. If you plan to read Across the Universe and Gone I'd go ahead and suggest getting both at the same time so that you will have them ready to go. When we start reading Gone we will do the vote for June giving you TWO weeks to obtain the reading material for that month. We won't have two weeks this go around, but going forwards you always will.

We have two options for starting Across the Universe. We can either start on May 9th, giving everyone a week to obtain the book, or on May 17th which will give you more than two weeks. Keep in mind that if we start on May 17th we will have to do Gone in June. Which would you prefer?

Let the voting commence!

Time to vote! This vote consists of several things.
This is a trial run. We will more than likely do a vote again in the middle of May to determine June's books, and then in June we will do July's and so on.
The most popular book will be our first book. 
The second most popular book, our second book, and so on. 
This will give us all plenty of time to get the books at our library or purchase them and plenty of time to read ahead if you'd like! :) Happy voting!

It has been decided!

Thank you all for your great feedback! Upon looking over the results of the poll and discussing our options, we have decided to talk about ONE book every TWO weeks! This will allow us to read two books a month  together and discuss them chapter by chapter! As things progress we may be able to increase the amount of books per month, but for now let's see how this goes!

We look forward to starting the voting for the book that we will read first and will announce that voting is open as soon as it is ready. In the mean time, please suggest books you'd like to read and discuss!

We are currently in the process of securing a 5th member, we will also announce this as soon as we know for sure!

Thanks so much for your support.

See you soon,

Amanda, Tori, Martha, and Shana

Vote for how long you need to read!

We need your input! We are setting up the book club so that after so much alloted time we will come together as a club and discuss the book. I set it up in page format because each book has different amounts of pages per chapter. So tell us what you think! If you don't see the time you would need, click other and leave a comment letting us know how long you would need.

How long do you need to in order to read up to a certain point in a book?
1 week for 25 pages
1 week for 50 pages
1 week for 75 pages
1 week for 100 pages

First Post!

Chapters Book Club is a YouTube book club hosted by Tori, Shana, Amanda, and Martha!

We would like to invite you to subscribe to our new Channel 'ChaptersBookClub'.
Once a month a book will be chosen by subscribers and as a channel we will read the book together. This will include regular 'Spoiler' uploads at prearranged points in the book, enabling us all to discuss the plot together as we go along.

All are welcome, so pull up a chair and don't forget your book mark.
