Announcing January’s Pick for the Online Book Club

In case you missed Saturday’s post, I’ve started a Facebook group for the book club I’ll be running next year. I’m taking a poll as to how you’d prefer to find out about the titles – all at once, around three months in advance, or one month at a time.

Early results look like the majority wants to know all the books at once, so unless there is a late swing in the voting, I’ll be sharing the titles for the year next month (I’m still finalizing them).

What I can share is the selection for January:

The Count of Monte CristoThe Count of Monte CristoThe Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas by Alexandre Dumas

The plan is that on the first Monday of the month (in this case, January 4th), I’ll put up a post about the book. Why I picked it, maybe some background info, etc. I’ll also share a list of discussion questions.

That post will officially kick off the discussion over on the Facebook group.

At the end of the month, I’ll post my review of the book, and have a linkup, so if you want to share your thoughts about the book there you’re welcome to link a post, or add a comment.

If it sounds interesting to you, join us in the Facebook group. It’s pretty quiet over there right now, but we’ll really get going with the discussion in January.

Until then, I need to get reading – this book is a long one! I’ve started listening to it and will likely flip between the audio and kindle versions. I went through all of the narrators and liked this version the best. However, if you’re not an audible member with a credit to use, you can get this version for only $1.95 if you first buy the $.99 kindle copy. That’s a great price, and the narrator isn’t bad.

  1. My favorite, favorite, favorite!

  2. Your enthusiasm for the book played a role in me selecting it, as I debated whether or not I should because of the length. 🙂 If you have time, I hope you’ll join in the discussion in January!

  3. I want to find a physical copy as well. Thanks for pointing out a good narrator!

  4. I’ll pass on January since I’m not a huge fan of the classics, but I’ll join in the FB group, so I can read along in future months. 🙂


  1. […] Dumas How did I get it: Bought it from Audible (this version). Why did I get it: It’s January’s book for my book club – of course I need to get it and get reading! I originally borrowed it from the library but […]
