Introducing Booked: Reading Together

This month I’ll be participating in Write 31 Days, focusing on book clubs.

Booked {Reading Together} | Introduction to series about book clubsIf you’ve thought about joining one, I’ll discuss why you might want to.

If you’ve wanted to start one, I’ll give you tips and ideas of things to consider.

If you’re looking for help revitalizing your discussions, I’ll have potential questions and discussion ideas.

And if you just want some ideas of great books to read that have plenty of depth for discussing, I’ll have those too.

Join me the rest of this month, as it’ll be all about book clubs.

Because some books are meant to be talked about.

I’ve also set up a landing page where I’ll be linking each day’s post, so it’ll all be together and easily accessible. You can find all of that here, although there won’t be any new content linked there until tomorrow.

And a heads-up! Although I am doing this along with the Write 31 Days, I won’t actually be posting all 31 days in October. This will be a weekdays-only series.

  1. Looking forward to this! I miss being involved in book groups – something I haven’t done since before kids…I need to get back to it.

    • Hope you enjoy it! I think I love my book club even more now after having kids – I appreciate it more than I did my previous ones that I attended pre-children.

  2. I need to start one!!

    • Do it!

      Or, just wait until later in the series where I’ll be talking a bit about online book clubs and a couple of options. One of them I’ve already mentioned here as being planned for next year.

      Or do both. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’ve been looking forward to this series! I’m not involved in any book clubs, but am intrigued by the idea of starting one… perhaps online. Great idea for this month’s series!

    • Thank you!

      Later in the series I’ll be talking a bit about online book clubs, and mentioning two that are happening next year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Love it! I look forward to reading your posts. I love book clubs. I’m actually starting a new one for other kindergarten moms. Our first meeting will be in November. I’m so excited about it, but I welcome all tips for new book clubs. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hope the series is helpful! How fun that you’re starting one up – and yes, what a great way to meet the other kindergarten moms!

      (Next week’s posts have several that are geared more towards new book clubs.)

  5. Great discussion series! I get a little wiggly when I hear the words book clubs it screams to me obligations! In my experience, the book choices are often ones I don’t find interesting at all so I fall off the bandwagon. I’ll be interested to see the rest of your discussion!

    • I understand that – it’s what kept me from joining one for a long time. I want to read what I want to read, and so many “book club books” do not appeal to me.

      Which is why it’s so important to find one that is a good fit – there are all sorts, reading all sorts of books. (It’s also a reason to possibly start your own, so you can guide the book selections). ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. YAY!!! Book Club!!!!!!!
