Great Books Week Blog Tour- October 4-10, 2009

In honor of Great Books Week, a holiday that is celebrated annually the first full week in October, NAIWE is hosting a Blog Tour with a specific daily topic Monday through Friday. The Association is a major sponsor of this event, and we fully support its goals.

If you’d like to participate, write a post on your own blog on the appropriate topic each day, then visit the appropriate post (linked below) on the NAIWE blog to leave your post title and link in the comment section so that others can enjoy what you’ve written. Be sure to share your posts in Facebook, Twitter, and other social media!

Here’s the schedule of topics:


Monday: If I were stranded alone on a deserted island with only seven books to read over the next few years, I would like to have…

Tuesday: When I was a child, my favorite book was… because….

Wednesday: I’d write my autobiography, but I don’t need to, because my story has already been told in… [what classic book?]

Thursday: I hated … when I had to read it in high school, but when I read it on my own later, I loved it because….

Friday: When I want to give someone a special gift, I give them [name of book] because…

You may approach your topic in any way you choose– you don’t need to stick with the word choices in the topics above.

Be sure to stop by the Facebook Event Page and “attend” there as well. You can even post comments and links on the event wall. While you’re there, I hope you’ll join the NAIWE News and Events page for Writers and Editors page. It’s another good way to keep in touch!

Finally, we invite you to make a small donation to the highly-rated charity, First Book in honor of Great Books Week. It takes only $2 to provide a needy child with a book to keep and cherish. You can read more and donate at the GBW web page. Great people read (and share) great books!

  1. Everyone has talented skill, Today gift ” God designed each of us so there would be no duplication in world. No one has the exact same mix of factors that make you unique. That means no one else on earth will ever be able to play the role God planned for you. If you don’t make your unique contribution to the Body of Christ, it won’t be made
