Myra here.

Slide1

Welcome GatheringReaders! I am excited to engage my book club participants with an online discussion about our Book of the Month this April – Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan.

15937108

This is definitely one of my greatest book discoveries this year. I love the voice of Willow Chance. I love her spunk, her brilliance, everything about her.

I only have a few questions here for you. Please feel free to just jump in and share your thoughts if you have read, or are currently reading the book, regardless of whether you’re in GatheringReaders or not. Do write your responses in the Comments Section.

  1. What part of the book are you in now?

  2. Share a few of your favourite quotes from the book.

  3. Name seven things you like about Counting by 7s.

That’s it! Easy-peasy right! Looking forward to reading your responses. For GatheringReaders participants, see you all next week, 27 April at the Jurong West Public Library, 11-12 nn.

If you’ve read the book and would like to be part of our discussion, please feel free to write your thoughts in the Comments section below.
