Sisterhood of the Traveling Shack

Have you read "The Shack"? I've just finished reading my copy and I would like to pass it along to someone.

Photobucket

My idea is to send it along with a small journal entitled, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Shack". I will start the ball rolling by entering my comments in the journal. After finishing the book you can read my comments and add your own and then send it along to the person of your choosing.

Does that sound like an interesting project?

If you're interested in reading The Shack, leave a comment. I'll pull someone's name on Sunday and get it into the mail.

That sounds like a great idea!!! - only, is it a scary book, cuz if its scary I'll pass. If not - I am ALL IN BABY!!

Lisa said...

What a wonderful idea! I did this once with a very limited edition book on the Beatles. The person that started it ended up passing it on to over 50 people!

I'd love to read it....I'm in!

Lucy said...

Sounds like a great idea. I like to "judge a book by it's cover"....and this one just looks good. Sometimes it works.

Patricia said...

I hear it's a lovely book - I am an avid reader and I think it's a wonderful idea - it would be interesting to see how far the book could go.....

What a charming idea! I've already read "The Shack" and am not parting with my copy any time soon. Hope that you have a lot of fun with this! (Don't include my name...I'd love someone who hasn't read it to have the chance.)

belladella said...

Great idea. Count me in. I've been wanting to read it.

Moose Ridge said...

I had not even heard of the book until Monday, when one of the ladies I work with was trying (in her very scatterbrained way) to tell me about it! and I love the idea of a comment book traveling with it...

Laura said...

That is a neat idea. I've never heard of this book before. :-)

ME, ME, please pick me!!! I love, love a good book and cannot put a good one down until I'm done. The journaling part sounds fun too.

Sounds like fun! Could we use you as "keeper of the list" so when we're done we know who to pass it on too? If I posted on my blog no one would see it!

onebrick said...

I just discovered your blog a couple of days ago and have enjoyed your posts. I'm going to add you to my blogroll...hope you don't mind.

I've already read The Shack. It's a great book and that's a good idea to get it out there to others.

Jenni said...

That sounds like fun! I just finished my latest book today, so I'm ready for a new one.

I just finished this book 3 days ago. It had me crying on the jumpseat. A passenger had to ask me if I was ok. I wasn't bawling. Just sniffling and wiping away a tear or two. (So I don't need to participate.) But I wanted you girls who haven't reaD it to know that it's wonderful and incredibly inspirational!

Marilyn Crain said...

What a great idea! I seem to be all researching/writing and NO reading for fun these days.

This will be incentive to read it, so I can pass it on to the next person.

I am so "out of it" that I don't know about The Shack. So count this avid reader who isn't reading in on the Sisterhood.

Mary said...

asounds like a wonderful idea. I will be back to reading soon. I had elbow surgery yesterday. between the cast and the pain pills it has been an interesting 24 hours.

Mim said...

That sounds like a cool idea. Everyone is talking about this book. I'm in.

Deirdre said...

Am I too far away? I live in England, and I don't have a blog, but your photos and tales of your life entrance me......

Lily said...

I love reading and am in.

Vanessa said...

I'd love to read it. Count me in!

Cottage Rose said...

Hey Suzanne; What a great idea you have there. I have not heard of that book but it does sound interesting.

Have a great week.

Hugs.

That's exactly what I need right now.....a Great Book to Read!

Wonderful idea......and I hope I am the lucky winner!

I just finished a very good book titled:
THE PAGES IN BETWEEN by:
Erin Einhorn

This is a good and fast and interesting read about a daughter who moved to Poland for an entire year to search for the House and Bldgs. that belonged to her Mother and relatives during WW II.

When the days grow short, and the pocket book is even shorter and it's Holiday Shopping time, a book transcends one into another very soothing atmosphere.

So good for the soul!

Actually, I've really been wanting to read this book! I found your site through Vee's blogroll! stickhorsecowgirls.blogspot.com We're a couple of babyboomers who want to join the community of women bloggers! Hope you'll check us out!

Kaye said...

Suzanne, what a great idea! I'm just mad that I didn't think of it first! Sounds like a lot of fun! I've already read The Shack, so don't include my name in your drawing THIS time.

Thanks for the chance to read this book! My mom just asked me this evening if I had gotten to read that book yet. How coincidental is that?

Jeni said...

Oh what fun this will be ......is it for American residents only? or can I in Australia enter also.... I would also like to ask.... do you have a recipe for pumpkin pie ...my Grannie use to make it foe me when I was a wee girl

Lisa said...

I've already read the book, so don't enter me in the contest. I just couldn't resist commenting about it though. I just wanted to tell everyone out there that I think they'd really enjoy this read. It is a great book!

Mogsie said...

I think it is a good idea, especially since I am ALWAYS looking for books to read.

'fraid I ain't very inventive by myself.

I'm reading it right now for book club.

Lori said...

I would love to read the book. I've looked at it a couple of times at the store but have always had another place for the money I would have spent on it.

What a great idea to have the book travel.

BettyWestern said...

Am I too late? I am often drawn to books by their covers (isn't there a saying about that being totally wrong?!) Anyway, looks like a great winter read to me and I'm gonna be done with my Mr Y soon. Please, please, pick me!

Amy said...
