Please consider this the wrap-up post for this past month's book club read (Grimm Fairy Tales). What with Thanksgiving last week, we'd be scrambling to try to write something up to post today. We hope you read along - at least a fairy tale or two. If you did, and want to share your reading experiences in the comment section of this post, please do.
We're going to go ahead with December's read which will be announced tomorrow but after this month we're going to let this book club pitter out. Frankly, it takes a good amount of time and energy to keep it going and I find myself needing to apply my attentions elsewhere these days. It's getting hard to remember to get things lined up at the beginning and end of each month and, again, its just not getting the attention that it needs.
I think 2016 will find Reading to Know book club-less. But of course (!) I'll still be hosting the (7th annual!) Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge in January.
I will also plan on hosting the (7th annual!) Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge come July.
However, a monthly planned read seems to be puttering out. As I wish television producers would do sometimes, I think the plug should be pulled on this show before we fall even further behind than we already are. (Ha.)
If you've planned on participating in the December read already, stay tuned. We'll follow through with the announcement for it tomorrow. If you were holding reading spots open in 2016 for potential book club reads, feel free to browse around and join in with someone else's brilliant (ahem) challenge. Or, consider it a free for all and read whatever you feel like whenever you feel like it! (I have to confess to liking that idea.)
MANY THANKS to each and every reader who has participated in some form or fashion in the classic book club over these past few years. Thanks to all who have provided input and recommended books which I might otherwise never have met. It was all quite wonderful. It's just time to say goodbye to the online book club idea (for now).
If you know of a good reading challenge that you'd like to recommend for others to consider in 2016, please leave a note below! I'm curious and I'm sure there are some others out there who might wish to jump in with some fresh, new idea! Thanks in advance.
