First, Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day! I hope you are able to celebrate what he stood for and take some time off today for some peaceful reflection and relaxation. If you are working today, hang in there! And thanks for working hard!
I just started a new book with my book club. We are reading a nonfiction title: 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week by Tiffany Shlain. Our book club members brought a few book ideas to the table and we decided on this one as a group. I am not good at keeping up with the book club’s reading schedule, but I’m going to try. I actually got kicked out (not in a mean way) of my best friends’ book club because I couldn’t finish the books on time. They follow the Reese Witherspoon recommended books with her bookclub Hello Sunshine. I only liked a few of the ones I did read, so it was hard to stay motivated. I also do a lot of reading for work, so I think I was reading more than any of my friends and just couldn’t read that one extra book by the meeting date. Excuses, excuses…I know. 🙂
I have also had the privilege of speaking to a book club about the job I do as a literary agent. They had me come to a meeting and asked me questions about my role. It was fun to share with them!
Are you in a book club? If so, how does your club decide what to read? Do you read mostly fiction or nonfiction or a mix of both?
What are some of your favorite book club reads from the past? Or, if you aren’t in a book club, can you recommend that you think a book club would enjoy? Feel free to plug your own book if you think it is something a group of readers could read together and discuss.
I can’t wait to see your recommendations!
Have a wonderful day!
