It's 8:30 am and we're already dripping with sweat. We're slathered in SPF and have packed sandwiches, water toys for the kiddos, umbrella, folding chairs ... what are we forgetting? Oh yeah, our books! Grab your copy of Gods Behaving Badly, 1book140, we're hitting the beach.

Here's our discussion schedule for August. We're keeping it simple, this month. Ten chapters every week:

• Week One (August 2 through August 7): Discuss Chapters 1 through 10.

• Week Two (August 8 through August 14): Discuss Chapters 11 through 20.

• Week Three (August 15 through August 21): Discuss Chapters 21 through 30.

• Week Four (August 22 through August 31): Discuss Chapter 31 through the Epilogue.

As always, use a chapter hashtag when discussing the book. Chapter 1 is #1b140_1; Chapter 10 would be #1b140_10, etc.
