The Book Club Blog

Books for any occasion and other life stuff

And here we are!

Our first online bookclub.

So very exciting!  But how on earth did we get here?

A little while ago Imsonotablogger asked me what I thought of the idea of a Book Club Blog, as she had not been able to find one to join in her area.  We chatted about it, but nothing more was done (as far as I know).

Then last week I posted a review on The Help by Kathryn Stockett. And received a few comments about putting a sidebar thingie up with my Recommended Reads.  Then yesterday I posted about my IRL Bookclub and asked my readers if they would be interested in an On-line Bookclub.

The response was overwhelming.

So here we are.  Thanks largely to The Man for setting this site up.  Neither Imsonotablogger or I are familiar with WordPress but I’m sure we’ll find our way around sooner  rather than later. Otherwise we might drive him mad with our continual requests to change this, do that, make this look pretty.  He has been very patient with us (or me) so far.  Thanks G!

The idea is for people to become ‘members’ of our bookclub.  And take it in turns to review books that they loved reading.  That touched them.  That spoke to them.  That made a difference in their lives.  Be it murder mysteries, real life challenges, religion, romance, chick-lit, faith – whatever.  A book that you think is worthy of a review and that is a great read.  Or a crap read too, so that we don’t waste our hard earned cash.

Others can then give their 5c worth.

We have lots of ideas.  But we’re going to start off slow and simple.

Sound like a plan or what?
