She Reads and Reads is hosting the event and it is not too late to sign up if any of you want to give it a shot. I can tell you that the book they have chosen, Wherever You Go, is one of my 2011 favorites.
In fact, I just reviewed it a few days ago. Here's a quick link to that review that might help you decide whether or not you want to participate in Avis's readalong. It sounds like fun - and this Joan Leegant book is one you should consider even if you don't have time to participate in this group event.
