Well, in a sense.
One of my goals for 2019 is to read more, but the notion goes a little deeper than just racking up the numbers on my “read” list on Goodreads.
Sure, I’ll skim through some trash fiction and beach reads throughout the year, but I also want to really dive into some of the books I’ll be taking in. So I’m starting a one-woman book club that will start as a one-woman book club but may grow, it really all depends.
Each month I’ll pick a book from my “want to read” list – most likely a nonfiction one – and go full English major on it. I’m talking notes bleeding all over the margins, reactionary journal entries, the full monty.
Then, at the end of the month (or, most likely, the beginning of the next month), I’ll record and post a podcast episode all about that book!
(1-15-19 UPDATE: Meh. Nah, I’ll just make posts about them for now. The microphone I got for podcasting a year or so ago is on the fritz and, to be honest, it kinda just makes more sense to have a “book club series” of posts for the time being.)
Woo-hoo! Virtual book club!
If you think this is something you’d be interested in doing with me, definitely let me know! Even if you can’t participate every month, it’ll be fun to have someone to bounce ideas off of every now and then.
I’ll have more details on the podcast part toward the end of this month, but for now, January’s book will be Full Disclosure by Stormy Daniels.
