📖 Spells8 Book Club VI (Apr 5 - May 7)

A hearty hello to all of the forum book-lovers!

:books::star_struck: :heart:

Apologies this post is coming to you a bit late, I was caught up in holiday preparations! :pray: :egg: But without further ado…

Thank you to everyone who joined in for last month’s reading session (Reading Session V)!

For those who haven’t yet shared their thoughts about their book (or anyone who enjoys reading book reviews!) you still have time to do so in :memo: Spells8 Book Club V- Reader’s Reviews.

As of today, the sixth book club reading session has now begun !

Let’s get started

  1. Announce your book
    The first post below is an editable wiki post- add your book title and name to the list! (instructions below)

  2. The reading period is open for [[ 4.5 weeks ]]
    (A few extra days to make up for the delay in posting!)
    While it is great if you can finish your book during this time, it is okay if you break it into chapters or sections- do as much as you can and know that doing your best is always good enough!

  3. Share your thoughts
    You are very welcome to share any thoughts or tidbits while you read in the comments below or in a new post in the forums. But save the best parts for the final discussion at the end of the reading period!

  4. Final Discussion
    After four weeks, a discussion post will open encouraging all readers to share a review of their book and any personal thoughts they have about it. A mini-review is perfectly fine, and there will be a suggested format for anyone who would like to write a longer review.

A note about sharing books:

While everyone is free to choose their own book, you may consider reading along with someone else ! It is fun to share thoughts and insights about different books and even more exciting to do in-depth about a book with fellow readers :handshake:

If the book you plan to read is already on the list below, add your name to the list of others reading that book! For books with multiple readers, a separate discussion just for you will open for you to swap thoughts and share insights.

Please keep in mind that everyone will reconvene for the final discussion, regardless of which book you read :books:

For anyone who has trouble with adding their entry to the wiki post above, here is a guide:

HOW TO EDIT A WIKI POST

Walkthrough on how to edit a Wiki Post

  1. On the Wiki Post above (the first reply to the original post) look on the bottom right (near where you click to “like” a post).
  2. Click on the word “Edit”. You can now change details in the post.
  3. You can copy and paste another entry- write your book title, author, and username.
  4. Don’t forget to click “save” when you are done!

If it’s still tricky- no stress at all! For anyone who prefers, I am happy to add you in. Just write your book title and author in a normal post and I will take care of it :blush:

Blessed be! :heart:

Thanks so much! I started reading but it’s hard to remember all my thoughts so maybe when I read I will just make a mental note or something!
Happy :open_book: reading! I am sorry I missed the last book :books: club report! I am trying! I just forget what to write :writing_hand: about the chapter I only want to write about one chapter at a time!

No worries, @Rowan- I know the feeling well! :laughing: I love your passion for reading. Can’t wait to hear what you think about the book! :open_book:

No worries at all, @Jeannie1! :blush: Book club is very open- if you’d like to focus on one chapter at time for your book and share a review for each section, you are very welcome to do so! The club is meant to be enjoyable- so please read at whatever pace is most comfortable for you :books: :two_hearts:
