So, we have been up and running for two weeks and what a great response we have had. Thank you to you all who come and visit us here at The book Club Blog and for those of you who comment and submit reviews. Its great to have you on board!
All the books that are reviewed on the site are linked to Kalahari which makes it easier for you to purchase if you are interested in the book. Just click on the book cover and away you go.
We are in the process of setting up the online bookshop and will be letting you all know how it will work once it is ready to go. Please leave a comment if you are interested in selling your books via us. This will only be available for South African buyers and sellers unless otherwise stated by the seller.
We are also in search of authors to interview so if any of our readers know of any, that would like to be contacted to appear on this site, again, please leave a comment.
And on that note, I leave you with the words of Sherri Chasin Calvo (dont worry I have never heard of her either): If you have never said “Excuse me” to a parking meter or bashed your shins on a fireplug, you are probably wasting too much valuable reading time.
First up, thank you all for your comments and warm welcome, we feel all tingly inside as the excitement begins to grow.
There has been a great response to the online bookclub and this is how it will work.
In order to join you need to submit a review.
We have a submit review tag at the top of our home page, please head along there with the review that you would like to see here. It will be sent through to us, and we will then publish your post.
We do not have any ‘banned’ books but we will decide wether we think the book that you are reviewing is right for this blog space. We are looking for all genres and are hoping to have a wide variety of books ranging from chick lit to murder mysteries, poetry to philosophy, recipes to religion. There is no hard and fast rule as this is meant to be a community and as we all know, any community has diversity, which is what we would like to portray at this book club. Saying that, we are not looking for sleaze:-)
So, pour yourself a glass of vino/cup of coffee/mug of tea, haul out those chocolate biscuits and put finger to keyboard and get reviewing.
(We are also here to help if you need to purchase a book as a gift and require some help in deciding what to buy. Both Shayne and I are well read and can put that knowledge to the test! If we are unable to help, we can ask our readers for their opinion. Gift sorted!)
Please note that we are also hoping to have a ‘second hand bookshop’ within this blog which will allow you to purchase books at a fraction of the cost compared to an IRL bookshop.
So get those reviews in and let’s get this show on the road!
