New Intercontinental Ballistic Reading Partnership

Hello Readers,

Boy has SMS Guys Read gone dark for a long time?  Our last post was December 7th and I am writing to you know on January 31!  Goodness we have been gone a long time.

So I have some really cool news to share. Over the break I made some contact with another Guys Read club way over on the other side of these United States.  I won’t tell you where there are, but will say that most of them will cheer for the Sounders FC.

This contact has led their leader, Mr. Shaffer and I to try an intercontinental reading group vlog project.  We will be sharing small video blogs about our reading with the lads of TMC Guys Read and see what kind of silliness we can get up to digitally.

We have decided that Tom Angleberger will get the first Intercontinental Ballistic Reading Group treatment.  We will collectively read Horton Halfpott or The Fiendish Mystery of Smugwick Manor or The loosening of M’Lady Luggertuck’s Corset.

This is super exciting as not only will be able to share with another cool group of guys, but Angleberger is on board to share with us as well.  Check the TMC Guys Read blog to see his Tweets with Mr. Shaffer.

So this Wednesday we will meet and put or first video together for the opening of Horton Halfpott.  My plans are coming together nicely and I am excited to see where this first video blog ends up.  Many of you will want to get your hands on a copy.  I have one, but you should be able to find it in the library or out in the bookshops.

This could be a huge partnership that could lead to lots of really cool digital projects.  I can’t wait and I know you will all be ready to help out.

Read on, Mr. H

Oh BTW… We didn’t just pick Tom Angleberger because he is a super cool author who is incredibly funny and intelligent.  We also picked his book as he will be on our campus on February23!!!

He even drew a sketch for our new t-shirt… as modeled by C-3PO.

  1. I’m looking forward to the first video.
    Love that t-shirt, and I’m jealous that Tom Angleberger is giving you guys a personal visit.
    Go Sounders!
