Booking It in 2012 – An Online Book Club

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 18, 2011 @ 7:41 am In | No Comments

Booking It is an online book club dedicated to sharing good reads and discussing those we’ve read. It’s pretty loose in structure. You can read “the assigned” reading, or not. But, you have to read a real book and then show up here on the 12th of every month prepared to talk about what you read. Leave a comment or link up your book review post. Visit the other links, comment on the other books read, engage, and ask questions.

The “Assigned” Reading

I came up with twelve books that I really want to read and that I think are generally “safe” to recommend.

Disclaimer: All but two are new to me, so I’m a little like the blind leading the blind. I can’t vouch for the language or content in any of them. Read at your own risk! But, know that we’ll be in the adventure together.

As always, you are in no way required to read any of the listed books in order to participate in the book club. But, if you’d like to read one of these books, it would be great to do it when we’re reading so that we can all talk about it.

Some of the assigned books are new releases, a few are classics, a few haven’t been released yet. There is a good handful of fiction as well as a few memoirs. I’m hoping it’s a good mix. There’s nothing too expository, but hopefully enough to inform, entertain or encourage.

If you’re interested, I’d love to have you come along for the ride in Booking It in 2012!
