Speaking Of...

Speaking of Books and Reading (see post below,) over at Bound to Books we are starting our new book.

Not sure what Bound to Books is? Well, it's easy. After talking to several of my friends and family, I realized we all had a common problem. There were many "classics" that we didn't have the chance to read in school, but weren't sure if we had the motivation to read them by ourselves.

Our solution? An online "book club," where we decide on a book, read it at the same pace, and then discuss it!

Brilliant, right?

It's a really low key, low commitment, low pressure situation, which is what I love! Discuss as much as you want, read posts as much as you want, but hopefully you read the whole book.

In the fall, we read three books:
Persuasions by Jane Austen
The Pearl by John Steinbeck
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Head on over to Bound to Books to put in your two cents for suggestions on books. Voting will take place, starting next Monday until Saturday. Our book will be announced on Saturday the 24th, and we will start discussions on the First of February!

I hope you join in!
