Everyone loves books, right? Of course. A literal 100% of people on this green and luscious Earth love reading books. Knowing that, it is my pleasure to announce the Culture Milk Book Club! The team consists of me, Brittany Stevens, and Gianna Gargiulo. Each month, we’ll be reading and discussing a new book from a specific genre. And each discussion will feature a guest reader to facilitate our literary dialogue. But to kick things off for the first month (and to undoubtedly iron out some kinks), it’s just us! It’s going to be fun and exciting for anyone who loves books everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, you can be a part of this. All you need is a copy of the book in any form you choose and the ability to read it. That’s it. We’ll officially start the Book Club on September 1st and begin a new book on the first of every subsequent month. We’ll end each month with a small podcast acting as a round table discussion. You can read along with us and contribute in the comments and on Twitter too. Everyone is invited to join us!
With the Book Club, Culture Milk is ushering in an idea that Brittany and I have wanted to get off the ground for some time — the idea of being able to read books with friends and passionately talk about them is something that we both have been eager to start doing. Couple that with all of you reading along with us and joining in on the discussion makes it beyond exciting. We’re both ecstatic and you should be too.
The Book Club is organized around a relaxed, easy-to-follow schedule. On the first of every month, you’ll see a post with a new book, a quick blurb about it, a few links to purchase it, and a short paragraph offering some pre-reading thoughts. Below that, you’ll see a podcast link to the three of us talking about the book. Isn’t that exciting? You’re darn tootin’ it is.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a few more days (until September 1st to be exact) to see what we’ll be reading. This post is just to let you all know what’s coming, what it’ll be like, and to allow you some time to adjust schedules, free up time, or do whatever! It’s all up to you, but we’d all love to have as many people as possible reading with us and contributing to the discussions. Lastly, if you’d like to be a guest reader on the podcast or have a great novel you think we should know about for future months, let us know!
