Bookworm has always been a place where children learn to love books. We’ve had a germ of an idea for a while now. Without your support and participation, it would remain just that, an idea. We would like to put our blog to more creative use, by launching an exciting discussion space for adult readers too.
Bookworm warmly invites you to come join in our efforts to begin an online Book Club. We call on anyone and everyone who thinks reading is serious fun to join in. Please forward this to your friends and family and help spread the word.
Purpose: To provide a space where readers can share views, perspectives and talk about books.
We would like to hear why you would like to be part of the discussion group. The reason we are hosting this online is to enable us to read and post comments and responses in our time, to be led to books we might have not considered and to grow in our own reading.
Once a book titled is posted, we will schedule a reading time followed by a response and discussion time. This is to enable everyone to finish their book without being unduly influenced by another. We will evolve these times as we grow to know each other and our book choices.
We aim to keep discussions centred around the book, some choices might have a discussion guide or might have questions to reflect upon or may simply be open. The comments however will be moderated and we aim to respect everyone’s opinion and point of view.
Please write to us at <firstname.lastname@example.org> to confirm your participation or just leave a comment here.
We hope to set the wheel rolling by the 15th of October 2010 with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s acclaimed novel Half of a Yellow Sun.
Once you decide to join our Book Talk, please send us a brief, 2 – 3 lines about yourself. For starters,
Hi! My name is Sujata. I live and work in Goa. Bookworm is my baby together with my partner Elaine. I love reading, painting and writing. I learn best through teaching.
