Discussion Schedule for 'Kafka on the Shore'

By Jeff Howe

1book140_icon.JPG We let the holiday weekend get the better of us here at 1book140 HQ, but we're now ready to release the discussion schedule for our July selection, Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore. It's important to note that we will be using the same hashtag system as last month. If you want to make a comment, or ask other readers a question, about something in Chapter 3, then put the hashtag #1b140_3 in your tweet. This both focuses discussion, and most importantly, keeps you from giving away plot points to other readers.

As always, remember that this is a rough discussion schedule. Feel free to read the book at your own pace. We've also simplified the schedule a bit so that it's organized by week. Here it is, and as always, happy reading:

• Week One (July 5 through July 11): Discuss the preface ("The Boy Named Crow") through Chapter 13. We'll lump the preface in with #1b140_1.

• Week Two (July 11 through July 17): Discuss Chapter 13 through Chapter 25.

• Week Three (July 18 through July 24): Discuss Chapters 26 through Chapter 38.

• Week Four (July 25 through July 31): Discuss Chapters 39 through 49.
