Worldwide Book Club Announcement

thegirlofnovels:

Judging by the reaction of this post, I think it’s pretty obvious when I say that we all want a book club to happen. ohsomanybooks brought up the idea of having a Google Hangout which would allow all of us worldwide to join in on the fun. If we manage to pull it off correctly, I think this could actually work and as a tumblr book community, we’d have an actual book club which is super exciting!

The plan is to have a group of permanent hosts for the book club and working on a rotating schedule, 4 of us will appear on screen every month to give a live book talk.

So far, myself, books-and-cookiesohsomanybooks, readaroundtherosieliteratureloveaffair, thebooker, thebookhangover bluestockingbookworm,  pixelski, duckduckbooks and bookdrunkinlove are definitely going to be part of it and while I’ll be sending messages to certain people inviting them to become a host, you’re free to apply at worldwidebookclubs@gmail.com with the subject line: Application to be a Book Host. As a general outline, you’ll have be doing the following things as a host:

  • decide on which book will be read every month with the other hosts of the book club
  • be given the password to worldwidebookclubs@gmail.com which will be used to send emails to members of the book community detailing the book people should be reading that month in order to participate, and the time and date the google hangout will be held. 
  • participating in the actual book club by appearing on video once a month/two months to discuss the book with members of the book community (although if you aren’t comfortable with this, we can work something else out and you’ll still be a host)

Of course, this is all early stages that needs months of planning, and it might not even happen with a lack of people joining, uni interference, etc. but on the off-chance that it does happen we’d also need actual book members who’ll watch the livestream and will be able to comment and discuss the book with the hosts. 

This is where the rest of you guys come in. 

If you would like to become a member of the book club and participate in the livestream by discussing the book with us live please email worldwidebookclubs@gmail.com saying that you want to become a member as well as your tumblr url, goodreads url and the email you want to be contacted at.

From here, I’ll add you to the contact list where I’ll send you an email with the details of when this book club will happen if it actually gets launched. 

I also encourage you to join the Worldwide Book Club Group on Goodreads for future information as well. 

And finally, like and reblog this if you want it to happen to signal boost it. Thanks! :)

So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.

— Roald Dahl, Matilda

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you like Eleanor and Park, try Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz because both of these YA novels feature love stories between seeming opposites.
