HI Witches, It’s Valerie, I am super excited to read a book my husband is leaving for a whole week ! I am ready to read, & get ready for this coming Book Review! It’s something, I actually been thinking about doing for a while online so this will give me some practice. I have not read through a whole book yet. Since, I already read half of the book, I am ahead of the game!! I just wanted you all to know that I am going to participate!! I am not sure what book yet. Yeah sorry to be a bummer but I just relized I didnt lose my opportunity in the book review because I thought it was just a one time thing and look I am so blessed!!
I’m glad you like taking notes and writing the book report, @Kasie- the last one was really fun to read and I learned a lot! I’m looking forward to your future book reviews
Loving your enthusiasm, @LimeBerry! I’m sure you will find a wonderful book- I’ll have the first club post out on Friday Everyone is welcome to announce their books here or on the Friday post- feel free to match up and read the same thing as someone else!
Ohhhh nice idea! Have you started the Spiral Dance yet, @Tamera? If so, how do you like it so far? Looks like Spiral Dance will have a special discussion topic for you all to share!
So many great choices, @MeganB! Can’t wait to see what you will choose
Hooray, @andrea_d! I hope you found some interesting books in the free list- there’s a lot to choose from in there
I’m so glad you’re excited, @valerie3 No rush, you have some time to choose a book. Do you have any in mind? Check out the free list of witchy ebooks from the description- I’m sure you can find something interesting!
No worries, @Tamera! The goal is to read the whole book in the 3 week reading period, then discuss together and share insights. If you don’t finish the book during this time, no stress! There are no punishments for not finishing- many people have busy schedules after all! Feel free to relax and read at your own pace
Thanks darling! It took me a while to get back into it, because it’s been an age and a half since I wrote a report. High School was long ago and far away for me. LOL. I’ll do it again, it seems a good way to discuss the book.
Great thank you @TheTravelWitch.
Set a goal before you begin and then see if you can achieve that goal! For example: ✓ Read five chapters in 3 weeks
If you think you’ll have time, go for the whole book!!
Hahaha I know the feeling, @kasie! It’s a bit funny, because in High School reading was a chore for me- something forced that I didn’t enjoy. Book reports were just more homework. But now, when I can find the time for it, writing and discussing books has become such a pleasure!
It’s really amazing to experience the magick of a good and enthralling book, and then want to share that with others!
You’re very welcome, @Tamera!
And that’s a great plan, @Francisco! For anyone who considers themselves to be a slow reader or has limited time- setting smaller goals by chapter is a wonderful way to move through the book at your own pace
That’s because you’re not reading what they’re making you read. Like Jane Eyre or Huckleberry Finn or some such. I always tried to get my classic books switched to Dracula or Hound of the Baskervilles. Much more fun!
Wow, did they usually let you switch out the required reading for a book you chose? In hindsight, this would have been a fantastic idea- there is so much power in choice!
I feel like, even if the book I had chosen wasn’t great, I definitely still would have enjoyed reading it more if it was something I picked for myself
This is a Great Idea
Not always, but I tried. Boy did I try. LOL.
I hope this isn’t a stupid question, I’m wondering if the book has to be Wiccan Topic?
So happy you think so, @sandra1!
Good for you for trying, @kasie! And hey- if you got to switch out even just one required book for something fun, then I think it was totally worth it!
Not a stupid question at all, @valerie3! Your book does not have to be about Wicca- or even directly about any magickal topics. If there is a book that will help to teach or inspire you and your unique practice in some way, then you can absolutely read that book as part of Book Club
Everyone has different beliefs and follows different paths- just like you can choose your own way with magick, so too you can pursue your own book topics But if someone posts about a book that catches your interest- feel free to read the same book and discuss with them!
I was given Hound of the Baskervilles to read in school. But I think that ruined it for me. I should give it a second read now!
In my opinion, forcing a kid to read something just makes them hate it all the more. Yes, you should give it another try. It’s a fun book. Heck, it’s been a while since I read it. Maybe I should read it again too!
