QUIET: Question Three #Quietalong #12mos12rals

I'm back and ready to really get to chatting with you about QUIET by Susan Cain!  I'm done organizing the big event that has swallowed up my life the last couple of months, and I'm ready to get back into the books, especially this one!

We have previously talked about if we are introverted or extroverted, as well as those around us.  Now, let's take a look at a bit larger circle in our lives.  Do you remember any introverted role models that have been in your life?  What about them do you remember or inspired you?

QUIET: Question Two #Quietalong #12mos12rals

Welcome back to our conversation about QUIET by Susan Cain.  I apologize for being away for so long, but I promise to get better at posting regular questions this month.  I am currently in the midst of planning a big event for this weekend, so you will see more questions coming the second half of the month.  In the meantime, I have another question for you!

Let's look at those around for a moment ... spouse, children, siblings, parents, etc.  Do you find that you are surrounded by fellow introverts or extroverts or a mix of the two?  How about your friends?

QUIET: Question One #Quietalong #12mos12rals

Welcome back to our conversation about QUIET: THE POWER OF INTROVERTS IN A WORLD THAT CAN'T STOP TALKING by Susan Cain.  I'm keeping it short and sweet today with an easy question that will help in understanding where we are for the rest of the conversation.

In the INTRODUCTION, an informal assessment to determine if you are introverted or extroverted is found on pages 13-14.  Using that assessment, how did you score?  Are you introverted or are you extroverted or is your score pretty even?  Before doing the assessment, how would you have categorized yourself?

It's QUIET Time! #Quietalong #12mos12rals

Welcome to September, 
and a new readalong here at Book Bloggers International!  

I am very excited to announce that this month we will be reading QUIET:  THE POWER OF INTROVERTS IN A WORLD THAT CAN'T STOP TALKING by Susan Cain.  During our previous readalongs this year, we have done weekly or monthly discussions.  This month is going to look a little different because only one question will be posted at a time, and questions will be shared multiple times a week.  I'm hoping it will help to generate more conversation and dialogue on the topic throughout the month.  You can expect questions anywhere from 2-4 times per week, depending on content.

I have listed a general reading schedule below for those who prefer the scheduled reading, but please keep in mind that questions will be thrown out throughout the week and you may or may not have had to read the chapters to answer the questions.

WEEK ONE:  SEPTEMBER 4-8
Chapters 1 & 2

WEEK TWO: SEPTEMBER 11-15
Chapters 3-6

WEEK THREE:  SEPTEMBER 18-22
Chapters 7-8

WEEK FOUR:  SEPTEMBER 25-29
Chapters 9-Conclusion

Let's start with our first question of the month for QUIET.  It's an easy one.

Have you already read QUIET or do you intend to read along with us this month?
