2013 Threadbook

The Threadbook is a way to find all those pesky threads by your compatriots that keep getting lost. This year we're going to break it out as a separate wiki to make organization a bit easier.

Tutored Reads

Distinct from the traditional group read, tutored reads involve one-on-one coaching to help you through that intriguing but difficult book!

Whether you need help with history, science, math or language, or just some support and encouragement, the tutored reads thread is the place to find someone to work with you through that book you always wanted to read, but were afraid to tackle.

Visit the 2013 tutored reads thread to find out more about this project. Ask questions, find a tutor or volunteer to tutor yourself, or follow the links to last year's tutored reads.
