Several months ago, the lovely RA sent out an email to a group of book-loving bloggers and asked if we wanted to start an online book club. Despite my deep trepidation of ever having to choose a book for others to have to read, I agreed. Because, well, an online book club! Other people to blather on endlessly about good books with – I couldn’t say no.
Last month, the first month, was a big success with three different books and dozens of comments.
Then this month it was my turn to pick a book and write a weekly post about it. Terrifying.
I finally settled on Graceling at the very last possible moment because I’d heard nothing but awesome things about it. But oh, it was difficult to commit. To say to a dozen other people, “This book is worth your valuable time.”
I read the first 120 pages over the weekend and wrote my first post. And then other people started saying they’d really liked the book too and my terror started to recede a bit.
And then I kept reading the book (I’m now about 300 pages in) and I stopped caring what anyone else thinks about the book because I’m just flat out loving it. It may be the best book I’ve read this year. And I’ve read some fairly good books already this year.
Anyway, you can go check it out here if you wish: Very Bookish.
