Katherines Corner Book Club

Most of you  know how much I enjoy reading. Not just your blogs, but books too. Every month I post a new book list. I started thinking last night ( while reading a book) about how much I used to enjoy Oprah’s book club. I miss her show. I do watch several programs on her OWN network though…..  So, today I am announcing Katherines Corner Book Club!

I realize a good book club takes time to build. But it can evolve into something wonderful.

A good book club needs : Members- You,

A good book- We’ll choose one together ( choices are listed below),

A meeting place- Here

A meeting time- Just once a month we’ll choose the book and you can leave comments on the book club page throughout the month.

It’s basically a no obligation book club. It’s sharing  your  thoughts through comments on the book club page throughout the month. What do you think?

We already have a common connection through Katherines Corner through our bloggy friendship so we’re off to a good start.

Leave your book choice ( from the selection below) in the comments section on this post and then add yourself  to the book club members list on the book club page.

The book with the most votes is the book we will use for our first book club book. Starting next week! You can purchase your book through my book shop Click HERE Or just go to the book list page here at Katherines Corner or from your local book seller . All votes will be tallied on Wednesday the 13th  at 6pm MST and the book will be announced on Thursday the 14th.

 

One Summer  by David Baldacci- Terminally ill Jack is determined to get his fractured family back together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan -Three generations of women explore the complicated and often contradictory aspects of friendship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Robopocalypse  by Daniel Wilson- A daughters “smart” doll knows to much. The world technology has evolved in this science fiction novel.

 

 

 

 

 

Lets Take The Long Way Home By Gail Caldwell- A celebration of life and friendship.

 

 

 

 

 

Lets keep inviting people. You can post the book club button on your sidebar, or blog about it, etc. Everything you do is appreciated. This is the button code

    Hi there Katherine. I do think that this is an excellent idea. I would love to join in, BUT I am already of a thriving book club where I live, so I daren’t start on another one. :( I would have gone for Maine as well by the way! Funny how everyone seems to have gone for that one! I wish you success with it.

    1. Katherines Corner

      That’s okay my darling friend. If you change your mind you can join in any time. Hugs

  14. Lesa

    Following from the weekend hop. Guess what? I’m a voracious reader and one of my blogs is a bookblo— so I’m very happy to find your bookclub— And it is always great to meet bookworms outside the bookblogging community. Not that there is anything wrong with bookbloggers– just the more the merrier! :)

    I’m an eclectic reader and I love sci-fi so my vote is for Robopocalypse. Guess I might have to read it by myself though. haha

    1. Katherines Corner

      Vote noted. Thank you for joining the book club Lesa and for being active on my FB page too. Hugs!

  15. Nicole Abdou
