Online Book Club

I thought this soap from The Philosopher’s Guild was hilarious 😀

 

Are you on Twitter?

Do you love to read?

Do you love Jane Austen?

 

If you answered “yes” to all 3, you should follow @6MonthBookClub on Twitter. 🙂 If you’re interested in reading some of Austen’s works next year, you should follow too. 🙂 I was reading a lit mag last night & half-listening to the TV. The movie Jane Austen Book Club was on & it got me thinking that I have only read 2.5 of Austen’s books. I’ve seen every movie version of every one of her books ever made practically, however. (Probably not, but still!) I love Lost in Austenland & yes, I even love the Murder at Pemberley miniseries. So, I thought “hey, why not read Austen this next year?” Then I thought, “hey, why not see if anyone on Twitter might be interested?” So, my little idea was born. I figured I’d follow the same order as the book club in the film read them (as a nod because I love movies just as much as I love books) & also I liked the months they read them in. I live with some chronic illnesses & I’ve come to know which months I’m ‘typically more active/feeling more functional’ & February to July seemed perfect. I’m thinking the other months, (with the exception of Jan., where we’ll take off) I will host a monthly book chat just to talk about what we’re currently reading. It should be fun.

If all goes well, I will continue to do this & I’ll have followers vote on which author to do next year. There are a lot of authors who have written at least 6 books so that’s the only requirement really. 🙂

I read just as much as I write & I think it will be fun to share the love of books with others. So, hope to see you all in February! Have a great holiday & a Happy New Year! I’m sure I’ll be posting an update or a poem or something here before then though. 😀

    1. Sure thing. Some others not on Twitter were interested as well. I will probably end up putting the live tweet questions into a graphic & people can answer & share their answers however they like. I have plenty of time to figure things out before February. ☺

  1. What a cool idea! Also, I really need to watch that film. I don’t know that I’ll get to participate with every book but I agree that you should post here about it along the way as well as Twitter. Sometimes I miss seeing things on there but Bloglovin’ keeps me organized. 🙂

  2. I read all of Austin’s works for a Uni class, we’ll worth it. Read ‘The Jane Austen Bookclub’, but not seen the movie or the others you mention. This year I am hoping to read pretty widely (a book a week if poss) to spur on my writing, so though I won’t be Austen bingeing I’ll def check out how you’re all doing! Great idea ☺
