tranquil tuesday: online book club


i LOVE the idea of starting an online book club for tranquility du jour readers. 
here's my initial thoughts on making it happen:

1. we'll choose a book each month.
2. i'll post the book in the lower right side bar of the blog. this image will link to a blog post 
where we can all comment throughout the month.
3. we'll support each other on our reading journey.
4. launch date is tuesday, march 1.
sound good to all? additional ideas or suggestions? book suggestions? 
do share! this will be fun. x

I am so excited about the online book club, as well as all of the information about your clothing line that you gave in the most recent podcast!

My book vote is Living Your Yoga.

I'm in! This'll be my second online book club but their both monthly so I think it'll be okay. (That, and I read fast.)

Can't wait to see what the first book is!

I love this idea, Kimberly! In-person book clubs have been hard for me to belong to because of scheduling so doing something online sounds great to me! Looking forward to it.

Happy Jen said...

Yes, That sounds so fantastic. I cannot wait! Could you let us know the book ahead of time, so we have time to order it?

Mandy said...

Love, love this idea! Also Kimberly, what is that adorable pink book 3rd from the top in the picture?

:D

Allison said...

Love the idea of an online book club but as I'm in Australia I need a bit of notice so I can order the book in time! Thanks Kimberly!

Mary P. said...

I think this sounds like an amazing idea. Not only will be broaden our horizons with reading we will also be able to connect with each other! Also, I think getting others opinions on books aids in understanding the full meaning of what the author meant.

I'm up for fiction and nonfiction alike.

Carrie said...

I can't wait!! Potential book ideas: "The Happiness Project", "The Art of Non-Conformity: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World", "Gifts of Imperfection"....
Peace, Love, and XOXO
