If there is one thing I could improve about myself…other than my excessive addiction to all thing chocolate…wait, I wouldn’t change that. I digress…anyways…it would be the amount I read. It’s not that I don’t enjoy reading. Because I really do love it. I read the entire Twilight series in five days. Don’t even ask…obsessed doesn’t even cover the level where I was. It was intense.
Moving on…I literally have a shelf full of books that have been collecting dust for years now. Horrible I know. I hear people talk about how great these books are and I want in on it but as I sit down to read my mind wanders. It’s like my eyes are reading but my brain is thinking about everything else imaginable. I think this says a lot more about me as a person…but it is something that I desperately want to work on.
So I came up with an idea. I’ve always loved the idea of a book club. A place to get together with your girlfriends and
drink too much wine talk about books. But with my crazy schedule I can never commit to an actual in-person get together. So…I decided a blog book club is the perfect answer! For all the other not-so-great readers out there…we can hold each other accountable and actually read those books that have been calling our names for way too long. Every month I will post a book and that gives us four weeks to read it…then report back and discuss. And maybe drink a little wine, too. 🙂 What do you think??
This month…I’m already 20 pages into You Are Here and I am loving it. When I was at What If, Jonas and Natalie both raved about this book and I decided to give it a shot. So far what I can tell you is it’s all about living present and being present. In a world of distractions and clutter (where I can’t even focus on a book while I’m reading it)…so far this book is just what I need. The best part…it’s short and cheap! So no excuses!!!
Go pick it up and we’ll chat in a month about all it’s goodness. The LWP book club is officially in full effect! Woo!
