Onine Book Club

Sometimes I wish I belonged to a book club…and sometimes I’m glad I don’t.  I actually do not read a lot of fiction…I like to learn new things, explore ideas and thoughts from the books that I read.  Most book clubs are centered on fiction books and may even stay within a certain genre of writing, like romance novels.  I did try a fiction group at the local library once, I read the book that was recommended, but then I was too busy to go to the meeting on the date that it was being discussed.  so then I tried a group from the local convent that reads religious works. I bought the book, read it, enjoyed it…and then found out the day of the meeting that they had changed the on-line schedule and were actually reading a different book…you must update your website when you do that! So I’ve given up on the run of the mill book clubs

So I thought I could always start a book club of sorts on this blog.  read a book maybe even a few chapters at a time and have an instant messenger discuss or a page on my blog where people could leave comments about what they have read.i thought that it may be a good idea for me to read the book first, so I started to read, “The Happiness Project,” Which I had been wanting to read for a while.  Then, (insert evil cackle here),  I acquired a copy of that book that they call mommy porn, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”  Now as I said, I rarely read fiction, but this book is like bubble gum for the brain…no deep thinking required…you read it, it tastes good for a little while, but then it loses it taste, so you spit it out…not something you want to be chewing on for a long time.

So let me know if you would be interested in something like this, and what kind of books you like to read.  We can always put a short list together, and try it out for a few months.  It would probably be a good idea to take a month with each book as we are all busy people.  Let me know…

God Bless, Julia

  1. Oh and I so forgot to tell you! I fiiiiinally finished fifty shades, and although I still dislike it, it left me hanging by just enough to make me buy the next one. Argh!!! 😉

    • I know what you mean…part of me does not like it, and part of me says, buy the next one stupid lol 🙂

  2. I would love to join but afraid I wouldn’t be able to commit given our schedule. Now doesn’t that sound totally ridiculous given that I am retired? I will have to give it some thought.
