We Be Clubbin'

Ok, I want to start a club.
Do you want to be in my club?
It's a book club.
A BLOG book club.
And it will be super fun.
Here is my idea:
12 people agree to participate in the club.
Each person makes a list of books they would like to read this year.
Hopefully, we can select 12 books that NO ONE in the group has read!
Each person is in charge of purchasing one book.
On the first or second day of the following month, you mail the book to your designated book club blog buddy.
At the end of the year, we will have read 12 new books!
The only rules I can really think of are that;
1) You MUST mail the book on the first or second day of the month so that the next person has three weeks to read it.
2) You have to give the book to the next person, regardless of whether you've finished it or not.
3) Don't give anything away on your blogs. Write a review, but no details!

We could set up a super fun forum on blog frog where you could post in depth reviews. That way, people could choose to enter the forum of the book they've just read to discuss!
When the year is done, we could SELL the books on Amazon and donate them to a literary foundation! TAAA DAAA!!!!

Let me know what you think, bookie bloggers!

Ashley said...

I would def. be down for this idea! I think its a fabulous idea and something that would get me to read books outside of my comfort zone I think!!! :)

Molly and Patrick Devinger said...

I'm so in! What a great idea! I have a list already. When do we start?! :)

Kathy said...

I'm out. I am not a reader...per se. My husband and I joke that if it's really that good they'll make a movie out of it and then we'll only be out a couple of hours instead of weeks. LOL

I'm only joining if I can color a chart logging my reading hours a la Pima County Public Library circa 1992.

I'm totally in :)

Kathy, my inner book worm is crying right now. As for the rest of you, yay! Jules, good call on the charts! My summer reading librarian's name was Mrs. Ready. Best. Librarian. Name. Ever! We have 5 people so far. 7 to go! Oh, and maybe the first pick should be a book we've all read that we put into the cycle?

jasmine said...

oooo! i'm in! but i refuse to read the time traveler's please don't make me! hahaha! this is a terrific idea. i'm excited!

when are our lists due and how many books should be on our lists?

Taylor K said...

I'm thinking lists due by September 1, first book mailed on October 1? That will give us enough time to ponder our choices and figure out a list with books that no one has read. So excited!

Megan Mann said...

Taylor K said...
