      Hi, I'm not totally clear on the format of the online book club. Once it is August will a thread for this book be started in API Reads or do individuals just start individual threads in API Reads as they have something to comment on?

      Thanks! Krista

        Clarification on process

        Hello Krista,

        Totally understandable and . I hope you enjoy joining us as we begin reading The Natural Child next week. Usually I try to start a discussion thread within the first week based upon the first couple of chapters and then people will respond. This discussion can be started by posting a poll, a thread, or a question. Our readers, includes you , can also post a thread whenever they want as well. We don't only have to respond to the thread created by myself. Does this answer your question? If not, please let me know so that I can further clarify
