Read along with water-loving friends around the world: January 16th to March 25th, 2017.
Here's one way to do it, your approach may vary:
~ Get a copy of the book in hardcover, paperback, iBook, eBook, audiobook or library book format. If you can't get your hands on a book, never fear, I'll be reading a few pages nightly.
~ Read or listen to one chapter each week according to the schedule.
~ Check out the readers’ guide for each chapter before and after reading. The reader's guide is in the back of the paperback edition or availble online here.
~ Meet in your local reading group or class (if you have one) to discuss the chapter at hand and review readers' guide questions.
~ Post and share questions, insights, images and quotes online using the the #bluemind hashtag.
~ Listen to the nightly 6 pm PST Facebook Live readings, weekly discussions (every Sunday at 6 pm PST) and add your questions and comments to the conversation.
~ Create your own Facebook Live chat each week, if that's your thing. Be sure to use the #bluemind hashtag so we can all find you.
~ At the end of ten weeks share your insights with those who can use them. Join us March 25th on the Outer Banks or hold your own fundraiser.
Everyone can use the #bluemind hashtag to follow the conversation across social media platforms.
Excerpts from Blue Mind will also be broadcast during the week on Radio Hatteras on their website and app nightly at 7 pm and 1am EST along with weekly interviews with the author via Facebook Live on Dr. Nichols' offical page featuring questions from readers and guest protagonists from the book.
