Since it was basically split right down the middle, you can choose either Eleanor Oliphant or Big Magic, and we are going to have a discussion for both. So you can pick whichever one (or both!) you want to read this month!

Both are on Audible if listening is your consumption of choice, or you can get a good old fashioned hard copy. I am personally getting both copies from the library! Here are the Amazon links for the books if you want to own it:
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
Amazon link for Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine:
Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
Amazon link for Big Magic:
Since it will take a week or so to get our books in, we won't start our discussion officially until Wednesday, June 6th. I'll check in with you on here then to make sure we are all good to go, then we can start reading.

So excited!

Thanks for joining...this should be fun!


Comment here when you've ordered your book, so we know when you're ready to start!

Megan Guy (meganguy) | 5 comments I chose to read Big Magic! I’ve been searching for new personal development books and this seems like a fantastic read!

Crissta Morrison | 4 comments I think I will read Big Magic as well; I read the excerpt and was immediately captivated. I tend to listen to self-development books better than sit down and read them, so I got the audible version with a credit I had.

Susie | 2 comments Big Magic for me as well.

Amy (amyjay94) | 5 comments I'm going to read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Mainly because it's available in my university library (I've requested it so should hopefully have it by the 6th) but also because I've been meaning to read it since it came out.

Edit: My book has finally arrived so I'm ready to go!
