I love the idea of book clubs, but the last thing an English teacher needs is more assigned reading. So I thought: what if we had a book club where we all just talk about whatever we’re reading right now? That way, we can read whatever we want! And talk about it!
Once a week, I’m going to post about a book I’m reading, or have just finished reading, or would really like to read next. It would be great if you guys would chime in. If you’ve read the book I’m posting on, you could comment on that, and we’ll discuss. But you could also comment on a book you’re reading right now, and we could discuss that. Or you could write on your own blog about a book you’re reading, and link here. Maybe I’ll ask you some specific questions about books I’m reading and books you’re reading, and you could respond to them here or elsewhere.
If no one wants to chat about books, I’ll just post about the books I’m reading anyway. This will be a way for me to keep in touch with you all, but maybe it’ll also mean I’ll spend more of my summer reading books, and less of it watching Project Runway on YouTube and playing Fishdom.
In the next couple of days, I’ll post on the book I’m reading now, and thereon in, I’ll try to post on Wednesdays. I hope you’ll tell me about your summer reading too! Here’s to books we read just because we feel like reading them!
