Want To Start A Steemit Book Club With Me?

in steemit •  10 months ago

I am sure there are many Steemonians that enjoy reading, and I wanted to see who would be interested in starting a book club with me?

Here is how I think it could work.

  • A post is made inviting people to read a specific book. The post goes up on the first of the month.
  • Anyone who wants to join in and read just comments back that they are participating.
  • Use a specific tab - steemitbookclub
  • Each person writes a blog and book review of the book of the month and posts it near the end of the month. We all use a specific tag so we can comment on each other's reviews.
  • A post is made that highlights the book and all the reviews that everyone posted to give them one central place for discussion.
  • Then we start the next month.

We can have as many people participate as we can. I don't mind picking the first one and starting tomorrow. We can have a different club member pick the book each month or even do the main posts. 

What do you think?

I am going to start this tomorrow if I can get at least two people that are interested. 

The first book I am thinking of doing is...

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki

- I have had many people tell me it transformed their way of thinking about money. So I think it is a good one to start with.

So what are your thoughts? Are you down?

If you think this is a good idea, please resteem if you don't mind.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated too!

Thank you!

I am interested. I was an avid reader once and would like to be again. Though I might be somewhat slow due to English not being my native tongue.

What is your native tongue?

German. I work hard on my English, though.

Hi @angwyn. We'll try to pick books that have been translated into many languages. That might help. I'll add you to the list.

I LOVE this idea! I easily read 2 to 8 books a month! I travel a lot, so, I use audible! :). I'm in!

Hello @walkingkeys. I love this idea and I am game for it. I will start reading this book today and maybe post my review of the book around 15-16th FEB. Added a reminder on my phone for 15th to post the review and added the name of the book in my "TO READ" list.

Cheers and great initiative. 🥂
