So last week Oprah announced her book club pick. I don’t know much about her current pick, but I have read a couple of her other picks in the past and…well…um…they just kind of make me sad and left me feeling a bit disappointed. I keep waiting for her to choose a romance…*sigh*…give me a happy ending any day!
You know, I have always wanted to join or start a book club, but no one around here reads the same books that I do so the club would have just been…well…me. And my family worries about me enough without me having solo-book discussions. 🙂
So, I got to thinking (scary, I know), what if we had a sort of book club here on the blog?
I am still trying to figure out some of the details, but here’s what I was thinking…
Each month we could vote on a book to read and then the following month those that chose to participate could read that book. I would probably give away a copy of the chosen book as well so I know at least one person could join me if they wanted to.
At the end of each month I’d post my thoughts on the book along with a few general opinion questions for those who read the book to answer. Those who participated could share their thoughts about the book and those that didn’t participate would get to learn more about the book.
And I would make sure people knew that the post and comments could contain spoilers for those that don’t like them and I’d fix it so they wouldn’t have to read them unless they chose to.
And even if no one participates, it will give me something new to add to the blog, I guess, and help me discover some new books.
But as I said, I am still trying to figure things out and things may change a bit…so what do you think? Would this be something you’d like to see here on the blog?
