I have always wanted to be in a book club, but the rate at which I moved around the last 10 years made that impossible, plus the fact that I usually lived far from friends and family. This is my solution: An online book club!

Hosting a book club across countries and continents is a bit daunting. I have so many friends that love to read and that I like to discuss books with. I wish we could all meet together in person and eat cookies and freak out over books, but unfortunately teleportation has not yet been invented (can we get on that??).

How does it work?

-I will choose one book each month. As much as I would like to all vote on a book, for ease and efficiency I will just choose. Rest assured that I will look at suggestions and nominations!

-The book chosen for the next month will be announced by the 25th of the month before. (So the book for February will be announced by January 25). Then you can buy the book/get it from the library/borrow it from a friend, etc.

-By the 20th of the month, a series of questions, etc., will be posted to encourage discussion. You are also welcome to post your own questions/discussion points!

-The forum is open for you to discuss and post when you want.

-If you have already read the book for the month (I feel like this will be inevitable for some), you are still welcome to participate!

My hope is that through this book club we can each expand our reading pools and find new genres, authors, books that become favorites!

Ryan | 2 comments Brilliant! I'm looking forward to it, though I do not have your time or prodigious ability to read so many books.

I want to clarify that if you are not able to read the book during the month it is selected, you can read it later and then go back and add to the discussion! That's the beauty of being online and not meeting in person!
