Calling all bookworms!
I am here to gauge some interest from you all, please. Would you be interested in a Book Club?
If so, we want to hear from you!
It would be amazing if we could begin a Book Club for the community. I imagine we would pick a new book every month, and read it together. Then, give our reviews and have a discussion about said book 😁.
I could definitely do with the encouragement to pick up a book - so, this would be a perfect solution for me. Is there anyone else keen on this? Please, comment below and share your thoughts!
My initial ideas:
As easy as that, maybe 🤗.
Let me know if you're interested! I would like to get a few of us involved at the very least, before committing. Any ideas or questions too, feel free to comment. Open to all suggestions.
P.S. I am also aware of the What Are You Reading topic too. We can continue using that for other books we're reading too 😊.
I'm a real bookworm. Problem is, I have very specific likes and dislikes about books. I dislike autobiographies. I have read the Lewis Hamilton story which was bought for me for Christmas but apart from that, I haven't read any others.
I like psychological thrillers or a good horror story.
So my concern is, being made to read a book I have no interest in.
I presume we would have to buy the books ourselves?
I have a Kindle but never use it. A lot of the joy of reading for me is the look, feel and smell of a brand new book.
Veritas Numquam Perit
Hey, @Cleoriff. Thanks for the reply 😊.
This is why I wanted to create this initial topic first to see if members would be interested.
I imagine we could find a book all participants would be interested in each month - just need to find a decent selection to choose from (possibly looking at prize nominations, for example). I understand your point, though!
And yes, this was just an idea I had recently. So, I imagine we would buy the book ourselves. I'll wait to see what others think. I appreciate the reply 😁.
I read some fiction, but not much as I prefer non-fiction nowadays (There is a enough fiction on the internet, but then what is reality?)
I've just read: Schrödinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality - By John Gribbin (2003) I've read it before, but the way the author explains (In simpler terms) Quantum mechanics is fascinating.
Highly recommended, but be prepared to be truly amazed.
Sadly I'm just too lazy to read books in English (aswell as it's not easy to get them to a decent price over here).
Even cheated back in school as I would read it in German instead (and watch the film)... But got best mark anyway as I could write and analyse it very good XD
Yes, I would be interested in a Book Club.
I am interested in most forms of fiction and non-fiction ... although ... not a particular lover of Horror, but I would be prepared to buy a book off Amazon on Horror and read as far as I could and post on the thread.
My comment would be maybe if I could not finish a book within a month, as I have said above, I would post as far as I had read, if that makes sense ?
This is an excellent idea, but how to find a mutually acceptable read?
Maybe each member could propose a few, then put it to a process of elimination by vote, until one remains (then watch while most people reject it, and pass that month.....)
A book club is a good enough idea to give it a whirl however
