Blogger Book Club

I was thinking tonight how there are so many books out there that I would love to read, but at the same time only really want to read them if I had people to talk them over. I was thinking there is a small enough group that reads here that we could do a monthly book club. We could pick 1 to 3 books that we all could read or if we chose we could read whatever one out of the selections that we wanted or had time too.

While reading we could post blogs on our own sites about certain passages, questions we were having or reactions. After we finished reading it we could post our reviews on our own blogs and during the last week of that month I would post different discussion question on my blog that everyone could respond too. Or others could do this as well.

I would also post a blog towards the end of each month where everyone could leave their suggestion for the next month’s read and leave the suggesting open for a few days and then I would post a poll on my site and everyone could vote for however many books we decided upon and the book(s) with the most votes would be our group reads of the month.

What do you think? Who would join this book club?

Would totally join :) I am in the process of finding my next book to read so let's do it!

Also, that pumpkin drink you had sounds maybe better than a pumpkin spice latte haha. I don't know though, you'll have to try it. I love Starbucks. My fiance used to hate it until I convinced him that it is amazing, now he is hooked. Maybe I can convince you too haha.

Oh ps. I am considering reading a new book called "Traveling with Pomegranates" by Sue Monk Kidd (author of Secret Life of Bees) with her daughter. Have you read it/heard of it? Of course I can't get it at the library cuz it's brand new so I may do use a Borders coupon.

That sounds like a lot of fun! I don't know if I could go all in though because I just joined a book club, but I'll definitely try to read one of the books once in a while :)

Kelly, I haven't read that book yet, but I have heard of it. It sounds interesting to me!

I would be so in! I would only have time to read about one book a month due to my school schedule, but I'd participate as much as I could!!

Great idea - but right now I am too far behind in my reviews. I'm hoping to catch up by Christmas...
