I'd Rather Be Reading Book Club

Happy Weekend to All!

Last week on Twitter I had announced my friend Jess and I were interested in starting a book club. And after reading a lot of your resolutions, I think everyone is a bit interested in reading more! We want this book club to be fun, challenging and help hold people accountable! I know I've joined a few book clubs where we had to read the book by the end of the month and naturally life got in the way...

So here is some information about how this book club is going to work.

We will begin "I'd Rather Be Reading" in January 2012! Our first book will be Sugar Queen by Sara Addison Allen. This book is 294 pages. We wanted to begin with a book that was easily read, fun to understand and not too long, not too short. This book will help us all test the waters and see if this is the right book club for all!

You can find the book very inexpensively right now on Amazon.

Now to the held accountable part. We wanted to make this a fun link-up party. Instead of saying "See you at the end of the month." We will be splitting this book into four sections and have a question and answer link-up every Monday. I will provide you with the button soon. This will give everyone a chance to explore different blogs and different takes on the book selection.

Jess and I picked this book, but we are very interested in getting your feed back for our next books. For right now, we will try one book a month and we'll see how it goes! We are SO excited to begin and hope you are too! Look out for more information in the next week or so, I just wanted to give you a head start to purchase or borrow the book!
