Well, last weekend my niece spent the night and I was finishing up a book for review (soon to be up:). She asked me how I got into book/product reviewing so I told her the story I just told you. She then told me she wanted to create a book club. We got to talking about that and even made an outline for it. Later on my younger sister called me and I told her what Lilly (niece) and I were thinking about with the book club. She thought it was ironic because she was thinking about the same thing. We all started to get excited about it...we spread the word around and some seemed excited about it. We have our first official meting for our group this Saturday:) We are the Reading Guild. What do you think? We have decided to read a book once a month, once a year we read a classic and we dress to the year/theme of the book, at the end of the month we get together to discuss the book and have a potluck, every Christmas we have a gift exchange; we read a Christmas read every December.If we choose a book from a series we must start at the beginning and read the entire series with a celebration for reading the entire series. We are open to all genres except paranormal and self help. My younger sister, Bethany and I are co-leaders. Our first club read is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
So...waddya think? you like it? What would you have changed or done? Any books you would suggest for a group read? I am going to start a blog for our book group so if you'll stop by that would be awesome!
