- Discussion questions will be posted on the BWB blog site on the the SUD, once you have completed the book, we ask that you answer these questions and email them to the HBIC referenced on the post. You are free to post your answers to these questions on your own blog site, but they will also be posted on the BWB site. Discussion questions are designed to make you think about the novel you just read and to incite conversation topics regarding the novel.
