Calendar Girls: June Theme and Updates

Mother May I?

Hello CGB participants! I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend! My family cooked out on Saturday, and then us “kids” took mom to see the movie Poms yesterday, and it was so cute! What did you all do?

Post Schedule Reminder:

The first Monday of each month is book choice day for that month’s theme. This is where you can rant and rave about your favorite pick for the current month, as well as see what everyone else chose.

The second Monday of each month Katie and Adrienne will be announcing the theme for the upcoming month, the chat reminder, and the voting form for both the next month’s theme, and the current month’s popular choice.

The last Monday of each month will be recap day! Katie and Adrienne will make sure to update you on the current month’s popular choice, the chat recap, and the upcoming month’s theme.

Reminders:

Don’t forget to join us for our new Twitter chat schedule. Instead of chatting for an hour one day of the month, we decided to spread it out over 5 days to allow more of you to be able to participate! May 20th will kick off this month’s chat and each day will have a new question under the hashtag #CGBChat. So you will have the whole week to join in on the fun!

Newsletter

For those who are new to Calendar Girls, it is a monthly blog event that was inspired by the Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl. Just like the song, each month has a specific theme, voted on by the participants, where we get to talk about a particular book we love or think fits the theme the best. The blog event was created to incite fun bookish discussions and to spread the blogger love by introducing us to new bloggers and/or books that we have not come across before.
