Scarlet Read-Along Kick-Off


Welcome to the first day of the Scarlet Read-Along! Jessica and I are really excited that you've decided to join us. If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late! Just head on over HERE (the Scarlet Read-Along tab at the top of the blog) and add your name to the Linky (that page is also where all updates will be posted, so if you forget the schedule at any time, you can refer to that page). 

For today, all you need to do is read the first chapter of Scarlet. That's it. Tomorrow, you can write a post with your first thoughts, or comment either here or on Jessica's First Thoughts post.



Want to know what happens after today and tomorrow? Here's the full schedule:
