I've been posting all my book reviews (10 so far) and calling it a "Feminest Book Club". Someone asked me the other day if it's an actual book club? Well, if you can have a club with one member, then yes, I'm on the VIP list.
Whenever I need quick feedback, I look to the gram. I asked my people what they thought about doing a virtual Instagram. Here's some of the feedback I got:
Yes! But I've joined so many book clubs and quit them...
I hear you. I have too! One of the best book clubs I was a part of though was What Women Read and I think that because Mel is so consistent and has such a passion for gathering women - it all worked. Look, I'm reading books monthly anyway, why don't we read them all together? Come if you want, no pressure if you can't make it that month... or ever again. I love you.
I love book clubs, but sometimes I don't read the book, but I want to come anyway.
Girl, I'm also guilty of this and I've found that if I just go, It's okay. Of course when I read the book I get way more context and details, but if you're interested in the topic, just come! I think there's also something to be said for just watching some interviews with the author (like with Start with Why), reading some articles, and you're set for conversation. Most of the time book club conversation turns to stories, themes and topics anyway. So what I'm trying to say, if you're interested in what the book is about, but you didn't read it, just come!
After that - I just got a lot of people messaging me and saying "I'm in". So let's do this!
WHO: You. If you're a women in business - you're in.
WHAT: Book categories we'll stick to are business, self-help, and feminism. I'll ask everyone what their overall rating is, if they give it a thumbs up or down, who you would recommend it for (if anyone), and the #1 takeaway. We'll also just have open conversation about the book as well.
WHEN: Melbourne - the last Tuesday of every month - 10:30 AM | Chicago - the last Monday of every month 7:30 PM.
I post my reviews the 1st Tuesday of every month (for the most part). So this will be nice to incorporate what you have to say in my review.
WHERE: Online baby. I'll send a Zoom link before the meeting.
WHY: Cause we all want to learn together, connect, and grow. Let's do this!
HOW: Sign up here!
