Once upon a time, I took a poll asking readers if they would be interested an online book club, and what kinds of books they’d like to read.
The results ended up being a three way tie. Hello. So, in true people-pleasing fashion, I decided we’d bounce around a little and read all kinds of books. Personal growth, Bible study, fiction, graphic novels…the sky’s the limit!!
I am going to launch the book club in January, when we’ve all settled down from the holidays. Our first book club selection is going to be one of my favorite books of all time: A Woman After God’s Own Heart, by Elizabeth George. Even if you’ve already read this, you won’t want to miss our discussions!
Here’s how the book club will work:
Each week, we’ll read a chapter of the chosen book and discuss it on the forum. I’ll post a few questions to get the ideas flowing, and we can all share insights or questions with each other.
I’ll also post a weekly challenge that goes with the reading, and you can choose whether or not you’ll participate in that.
Then, once a week, I’ll announce a time and we’ll all meet up for a chat!
Because I love you guys and this is a book I think every woman should read, I am giving away two copies of A Woman After God’s Own Heart here on Homegrown Mom. If you already own it, enter to win one for a friend.
Each reader can enter 4 ways:
Sign up for my monthly newsletter, Room by Room (and comment here to let me know you did, or already have.)
Re-Tweet about this contest (comment here letting me know)
Fan my Facebook page (and comment here letting me know you did, or already are a fan.)
And, you can just leave a comment here saying that you’d like the book.
Winners will be chosen at random on Random.org and announced on Thursday. To be extra clear, each comment is worth one entry. If you want up to 4 entries, let me know in 4 separate comments how you are entering (facebook, twitter, newsletter, plain entry).
Disclosure: Elizabeth George has no idea who I am and is not sponsoring this site (though I did meet her once, and I am pretty sure she was impressed by my nervous hair-twirling and adoring gaze, but alas no contact has been made. Maybe she lost my number?). I am giving this book away just because I want to (and because I got it on sale).
