Book Club??? — The Bump
January 2015 Moms

Book Club???

I know this was discussed back in May when lots and lots of people were still coming in, but I haven't seen mention of it since then.  Even with only about half the board here when it was first brought up, we had quite a few people interested. 

Is this something we still want to do? When do we want to start? How often do we want to read a new book?  Any other suggestions, ideas or opinions welcome!!!

  • I'm in! I've seen other boards do a weekly check in. After we pick a book we decided on a goal for that week, talk about it and set another goal for the next week.

  • I'd be up for a book club. I do one with my girlfriends IRL, but could probably do a 2nd book on here. Love to read!

  • I would love to! Maybe a new book every 2 weeks? I've never been in one so I'm down for whatever.

  • I'm in too! But I don't read books that suck, so don't choose one of those. ;)

  • I'm in another book club but am willing to tackle 2 at once. We just finished Divergent and are currently reading Gone Girl.

  • I would definitely be interested. I don't have any suggestions since any books I have to suggest are because I've already read them. I did find these lists though:

  • Depending on the book that is picked, I may participate. It could be a monthly thing and people can come and go as the books interest them.

  • I like the nypost list of 29 books that @EmilyA724‌ listed. Any of those sound interesting to anyone? I'm going back now to read through the descriptions.

    From that list I'd be interested in:
    The Vacationers
    Bittersweet
    The Rise & Fall of Great Powers
    All the Light We Cannot See
    California
    The Queen of Tearling

    But also I'd be fine with anything else too!

    Oh I missed that part! That was probably one I was most excited for, maybe next month?

  • I am in. My only preference would be to avoid high drama/majorly depressing. :(|)

    You know, just lurking and all, but wut?


    Okay so I take it back...I am not in for that one. Way too prude. Plus the image in my head is just wrong.

  • I won't be participating in this one. I don't like to read that much but I can suggest a great series to read if you like mysteries. The Nina Reilly series by Perri O'Shaugnessy (sp?). I highly recommend it!

    I'm in. I like the idea of voting on the book, and people can join or drop out each month depending on if they are interested in the book that month.

    I will skip all tearjerkers. I am already crying for no reason these days.

  • Why not start a thread of book club book suggestions, the books that get the most likes or generate the most interest we can stick in a poll to be voted on. The most votes is the chosen book. I wouldn't make the poll TOO big though. If you list 25 books, you'll either end up with a 5 way tie, or a book that only 6 people voted for, but it was still the "majority vote".

    I think we could start any day now, but it's probably best if it's a monthly meet-up. I can polish off a book in no time flat, but everyone reads at different rates. I wouldn't want to make anyone feel rushed to finish a book, or unable to participate because they know they wouldn't finish in time.

    If you want an "official" start date, why not just choose the first of the month? That makes it easy to remember.

    Just my two cents, I'm interested though!


    I took this idea and made a book recommendation thread. Hopefully that's ok!


    If you posted your recommendation here it would be cool to cross post it there for voting to be polled
