I hope your year of reading is off to an incredible start this month! Between my two book clubs and our MomAdvice Reading Challenge, every surface and moment is book-filled over here!
How obsessed have I got with my reading this year? Totally figured out my wireless headphones are perfect for soaking in the bathtub with a book in my ears (just avoid sliding down into the water!) and I bought a $10 plant stand for my coffee propping so I can soak until the water gets cold every single day.
I do it for you guys. You need my recommendations!
Last year our MomAdvice Book Club on Facebook really began to take shape for our readers. I envisioned a place where bookworms could gather, a good spot to share the daily book deals that happen on Amazon, and a monthly book club discussion. It’s grown SO MUCH and last week we grew to over 700 bookworms last week.
Do you want to join my book club? Let me explain how it works!
How Does the MomAdvice Facebook Book Club Work?
I will be your book club hostess this year and have selected the first seven books to get you started on a fun journey of reading. The discussion is held on the last week of the month and posted in the group with a thread for each question. You can jump in to answer questions at any time throughout that week, interacting with loads of other fellow bookworms.
How fun is that?
This post will be updated with our monthly selections so you can join in at any time with our group! Feel free to join us and let your friends know about the group too.
The more the merrier!
How Much Does it Cost?
Well, What Do You Get Out Of It?
I want this to be fun and free for you. I post the daily Kindle book deals and I share our book club picks though through something called an affiliate link. Basically, this link gives me a few pennies on each of your purchases that help pay for the web hosting on our website. The web hosting currently costs me about $200 monthly and your purchases from this group basically help to offset that cost for our family at no cost to you.
I try to only share the good stuff and good books.
In fact, I have been reading our book club picks before we get to them to make sure that not a moment of your time or penny is wasted.
For example, one of the books I selected, I did not enjoy. It has been removed from the list and replaced with a better selection. I want to make sure this book club is an enjoyable thing and that you don’t feel ripped off if you are purchasing books.
I know I can’t appeal to everyone’s taste, but I am really trying!!
I also would like to think I made a lot of great bookworm friends too in this group. It’s been fun to have a place to obsess about books, to share what we are reading each week, and just hang out with other people who just get you.
I have tried to cultivate a positive environment and the group is filled with those kinds of drama-free people that you want to have filling your Facebook feed. Escape the political nastiness and join a feel good kind of space.
Here are the books we will be talking about this year!
