I’m a massive lover of curling up with a good book and a glass of wine but struggle to find the motivation to do so anymore. With me now having two kids I tend to leave the book and head straight for the wine at the end of the day! 🙈 I often think that having others to talk to and discuss the book we’re reading at the same time would make me much more interested and give me the motivation I need to pick the book back up, but again, being a full time Mammy, I would never find the time to travel to a book club.
So I’ve come up with an idea to start a blogging book club. That way we’d have others to talk to and discuss with whilst we read the same book at the same time. Obviously I know everyone’s busy with their kids and other things we have going on in our busy lives so even if one month you only managed a chapter or two, you could just join in with whatever you managed to read.
How it would work I hear you ask? So at the beginning of the month I would pick a fellow blogger (and member of Hermit’s Blogger Book Club) to pick a book for everyone to read. It could be one you’ve already read (that way you wouldn’t necessarily have to read it again), one you’ve been dying to read or maybe just a random choice! It would then be up to fellow members to obtain a copy whether it’s on your Kindle or maybe a trip to the library (they still exsist right?!) or maybe a second hand job off Ebay. You would then read it at your own pace and try finish as much of it as you can during the month and we can discuss our thoughts together through a Facebook page or group DM on Twitter. At the end of the month a Link(ie) would be hosted so we can link our review posts or just discuss through comments our thoughts on the book.
So what do you think? Would you like to join me?? Give me a shout!
