Book Club

Wasn't it a beautiful weekend (at least here in Toronto)!?! It was positively warm and sunny out there and is supposed to be nice all week! I threw my back out on Saturday which greatly curtailed any sort of fun outdoorsiness on Sunday, but I'm still happy that it's light out for so long and it was so warm.

Ok...onto the post...

I am so excited for this announcement...Carol from The Design Pages and I have been talking about this for some time, and we are starting a Book Club!
For a while now, I've listed the books that I am reading or have recently read on my sidebar...readers will comment here and there - mostly saying they loved the book I'm reading, or asking what I thought of some of my past reads. Carol in particular had some great book suggestions for me, and we seemed to have a lot of similar book loves!  Everyone spends so much time online, but it's still nice to sit down with an actual BOOK and read a story. So we sort of tossed around the idea of doing a book club...except she's in Vancouver, and I 'm in Toronto. Then we tossed idea of doing an online book club...and here we are...

Our first book:

Here are the details....


WHO - Everyone is invited to join.  As long as you love to read, you're invited - you do NOT have to have a blog to join (but we would love if you do join, to add yourself as a follower of course)


WHAT - We'll announce the books well in advance so you have time to get your own copy.  As we announce the books we'll also include the review date and let you know which one of us will review the book.  We really want to hear from every single one of you who is reading along with us so on review day please stop by and add your review in the comments section or to a linky party (depending on how technologically advanced we can get!) 

WHERE - Each review will take place at either my blog or Carol's The Design Pages (we'll let you know where it's going to be in advance).

WHEN - We're going to start right now!  The first review will take place on Monday, April 23 here at InteriorGroupie

WHY - Because we love to read!

Here's the lineup of our first 3 books:





Let us know if you're planning to read along with us and if you're a fellow blogger, grab the Blogger Book Club button announcing that you're one of the cool kids in the book club (it also appears on my side bar).

I love this idea and joining a book club just so happens to be on my 30 before 30 list! Can't wait to pick up the first book!

What a lovely idea! I would love to participate...see if I can get around to picking up a copy ;)
Hope your back gets better real soon Heather. Cheers!

Oh man... I would love to! And perhaps I'll find time... I guess I'll have to see. The last book I tried to read, I wasn't able to finish before the library license expired on my Kobo! I've been in a huge reading lull...

Oooooh sounds fun! I will definitely try to join in! I used to be part of a book club a couple years ago and it was so nice to have that little added pressure to actually pick up a book and get lost in it. I have to say that one of the best parts was getting together to talk about the book, which usually led to various other topics, gossip, musing on life....all over wine of course...But hey, who says I can't sit with a glass while I read :)

I'm so behind on my reading, but since my site launched I promised myself to get back on my reading wagon. I'm starting on hunger games, but I'll catch up to you soon! Great idea!

This is perfect! I've thought about joining a book club before but never got around to it...this so appeals to my introverted and lazy personality ;)

Beatrice @ becado.blogspot.com said...

This is such a great idea. Will try and pick up a copy. Hope your back feels better.

This sounds like a great idea for those with similar tastes. I would join you.. if I didn't already have a stack of 20+ books I intended to read on my nightstand. Maybe once you get through the first three I'll have whittled down my stack, or be curious enough to pick up a copy of the next books if they pique my interest.
