Hi everyone! I am trying to get a head start on making sure we have people lined up for 2019 to lead discussions etc. One thing I am going to implement as well, in addition to the monthly leaders and re-read leaders, is someone to lead a mini-challenge each season. You can go back and look at previous challenges to see how the lists are created! It's easy and fun!

JULY 2019: Holly
AUGUST 2019:
SEPTEMBER 2019:
OCTOBER 2019:

Amaka Nzeadibe Hi!

Amaka Nzeadibe Also, for clarification, would the winter challenge start December 2018, January 2019 or December 2019?

Mindy Jones (mindyrecycles) I had volunteered for the Fall mini-challenge, and I can still do that one since your hands are pretty full, Holly. But I'm also okay with leaving it with you if that's your preference. :-)

Thanks so much for updating!

Hey Everyone, I'm trying to message people to remind them before their month. Just letting you know to expect a message from me prior to your month as a friendly little reminder. Just respond back, and please let me know if something's changed and you can't cover your month. Thanks!


message 27: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Johnson | 299 comments Are there any months left open?


message 28: by Frau Spätzle (new)

Frau Spätzle (soenne) | 145 comments Mod
Hey everyone,
if you message me 4-5 book suggestions for people to vote on as your month's read, I'll be happy to create a group poll and send a message to all members for you.
To allow enough time for everyone to vote, I'd need your picks by the 15th of the month prior to the one your in charge of, but any time (even months) before that is fine too!
If you don't have the time or don't feel like it, just let me know - so us moderators can pick some books for the group to choose from.

Not right now, but we might need people to jump in at rather short notice during the year - any help would be much appreciated!


Gilmore Book Club - Kristine Eckart (gilmorebookclub) Hi! I'd be interested in hosting a quarterly reread or a Monthly Group read this year or next year.

Colleen just messaged me that she isn't a member of this group any longer, so we'll need somebody to fill in for her for both the August book and the Q4 re-read. Message me with 4-5 book suggestions if you can lead the book discussion next month. Thank you!


message 32: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Johnson | 299 comments I suppose you could use the ones I sent you for September and I can send more for that month.
