the book by Eleanor Brown
My sister, Teri, and I have lived in different towns, and often different states, our entire adult lives. Our homes are currently 194 miles apart. Teri is joining me at my house for the Read-A-Thon, so together we're sponsoring the Weird Sisters Challenge.
We've spent many hours on the road and phone keeping in touch, but there was always so many family-related topics to discuss during our precious time together that books often got left out. So, in 1998, we began the "TandT Bookclub" (for Teri and Tami, because we're incredibly creative women). The format has changed through the years, but the basic idea is that we take turns selecting a book to be read within a specific time period. The person who chooses the book is responsible for planning some sort of activity to go along with the reading - making a recipe from the book, lunch at a location inspired by the story, a craft, or just discussion questions. (We confess, we don't always get this part accomplished - distance is an issue there, too, but that's the general concept.)
The Challenge is to tell us how you share your love of books with family or friends who live at a distance. You can submit a picture, humorous anecdote, or just a description of how you keep that reading connection going.
The challenge will be open for two hours (till 5:00 CT). Winner will receive a copy of The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown and a "family" photo frame. This challenge is open to all countries.
