World Reading Circle
Join us on a journey of sharing the joys of discovery that reading a good book can bring.
Unlike traditional reading circles, in this group we don't all have to be reading the same book. The idea behind our group is that as we read, we share our thoughts and the feelings evoked by the experience and so share the experience of the book itself with everyone around us.
Readers can share any book they are reading at the moment, or request help in picking a book the group finds interesting. All we ask is that you post book title and author in the subject, then share quotes, themes, ideas and moments within the book that have moved you on any one day. You can share anything from "I was listening to this music while I was reading today and it brought the subject to a whole new level!" to "I started on page 50 and struggled my way all the way to page 75 before I finally gave up for the evening." It's a much different way of recommending a good read than writing a straight review. And as we hope to keep each thread about one individual book, it will cut down on the pages and pages of chatter that sometimes pop up when reading groups do massive book sharing events.
This is a free and easy going group, one we hope will provoke some interesting discussions as well as simply being a vehicle for sharing what we're reading right now. If you're not sure how to begin, check some of the older posts, but do come and sit with us as we discuss the many worlds we hope to encounter together.
