Book Escape Club

If you haven’t gotten involved yet, you still have time. You really don’t want to miss out on this!

Hello dear reader.

Books have always been an escape for me, and I love hearing others’ thoughts about them. So I’m very excited that the Book Escape Club is going to happen! 😄 I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. If you haven’t gotten involved yet, you still have time. You really don’t want to miss out on this!

I’ve been thinking about how much time we should spend reading each book. I know everyone has a lot going on and I want this to be fun, an escape, not something that causes pressure and stress. So I’m thinking flexibility. A week after we start a new book we’ll all check in to see how it’s going. We’ll do the same thing the next week. No spoilers allowed. When everyone is ready, the questions will be posted and we’ll discuss them for the next week. I think allowing a month for each book, reading and discussion, should be good. That’s about three weeks to read and one for discussion. Again, however, it’s about flexibility and fun. I’m totally open to any suggestions about what will work best.

I’ll announce our first book at the beginning of July. That choice will be made by someone different for the next book so everyone gets to choose a book. Is that okay with everyone?

I’m very excited about this. I hope it turns out to be something we all enjoy.

I’m even more excited that I’m leaving tomorrow to go visit my daughter! I miss her so much and can’t wait to spend time with her.

Until next time…

  1. I think the time allowed should depend from the beginning on the length of the book. A month is plenty of time to read Hesse’s “Demian”, but not at all enough for Pullman’s “His Dark Materials”, to say two examples.
    Another point is that I tacitly understand all books must be written in English or translated into English (since it is, most probably, our only common language)…
    I look forward to knowing the first suggestion :))

    1. That’s a good point Li. I think maybe we’ll just go by the weekly check-in. Flexibility is the only rule 😉.
      I didn’t even think about language. Yes, we’ll stick with English. If someone doesn’t speak English we’ll find a book that they can get a translation of in whatever language they need. So far, I don’t think that’s an issue.
      Thanks for your great input (((hugs)))
