LWP Bookclub

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!


You are here, being present, living in the present, lwp book club, book clubs, online book clubs

    YES!!! Super excited about this!!! I’m already quite a few pages in too so this is perfect for this month. YAY!! And now I’ll actually read and be accountable for it too! (Because did you see my last post where I admitted I never/rarely ever finish books? I have 2-3 started at the same time always and leave them halfway in. This will make me finish!!) Okay – so what date do we have to be done by for this month?!ReplyCancel

  • […]  And worst of all…I start books and don’t finish them.  Kind of like I started this blog bookclub and then never followed through.  Full disclosure…I couldn’t get into You Are Here. […]ReplyCancel
