Re-visiting the Book Club

Please Share

Inspired by my post on my own Top 13 Book on Disability, I started a book club a while ago on Goodreads for anyone who might be interested in reading together.

More than a few of you joined and it was pretty exciting thinking of us all reading and gathering our coffee cups over an online chat session or something and sinking our teeth into juicy words.

But (and you knew there was going to be a “but” didn’t you?!) I didn’t know of some parameters that should have been set or – gosh, not anything as firm as rules, maybe guidelines? That’s it! Guidelines! Okay, I didn’t have any guidelines, so it went ka-booie, blam! By the side of nowhere.

Do you want to re-visit it? It could be really fun.

This is what I think though, in the way of Book Club guidelines:

1. All the books chosen need to be accessible by kindle and softcover (- inexpensive versions of the book need to be easily available)

2. Group members put in their recommendations or books they would like to read on the reading list. We all vote on the selections for one week. The book is chosen then we have a month to read the book.

3. We can set up a g+ hangout maybe, actually try and coordinate a time to “meet” and “talk” about the book – I would LOVE that. We could also just do questions/answers, or I could set up a sort of thread here on this blog where we could return and add discussion threads.

Thoughts? What do you think?

There are so many great books out there that I am dying to read and would love company in doing so (okay, and I’ll be honest – having to be accountable by having to finish the book by a set time would be great too!)

Here’s the Goodreads Club:

If you could go over there and take a look at the books on the shelf to vote that would be great. Then either add books by suggesting the title there, or message me on goodreads and I’ll add it.

The book with the most votes will be the one selected – and again, it has to be something available on kindle AND softcover.

Ready? Set… GO!

  1. Huh. I had no idea you had started a book club. I recently started a disability book club on FB.

    • Oh, you just got a case of MommyBrain!! 🙂 When I invited you after I started it, you said you had too much going on (reading wise), what with your IRL book club, etc but you’d try and participate if you could.

      • Totally don’t remember that, but I believe you! Why didn’t you speak up when I put the word out on FB about starting a disability book club? Ack. Well, please know that I never meant to (and hope I’m not!) step on anyone’s toes. Are you getting a lot of participation in your group?

        • Oh, I just thought you wanted to do your own thing or explore a different angle or something.
