Today’s the day! Doors are now open for the MMD Book Club.
Reading is a solitary act, but there’s so much to be gained by reading together. Our new one-of-a-kind online community makes it easy to connect with fellow bookish kindred spirits for fun, for encouragement, and for a more fulfilling reading experience.
Each month I personally pick our core title, plus complementary, optional selections that create a “book flight.” I share a short video explaining why I chose the book and what themes to pay attention to, plus share discussion questions to help you get started.
Our book selections will lean towards smart, thought-provoking contemporary fiction, but we’ll read old and new titles, in a variety of genres. (When you’re done reading here, pop over to the Book Club site to check out our fall calendar.)
You can discuss each title as you read—you don’t have to wait till the next meeting (or leave your home, or even put on pants!) to dive in to the discussion. And you can do it from anywhere: you’ll be able to access the whole site — groups, forums, videos, discussion questions — from any mobile device.
We read each book together over the course of the month, and then we gather in an online discussion to talk all about it. (Not able to make our monthly webinar book discussion? No problem! All videos will be available forever on the MMD Book Club site.)
Sometimes we’ll even invite authors to join us for book talk. This is a blast! We already have someone you’re going to love hearing from on the calendar for November.
We’ll also have the occasional class to help you get more out of your reading life, like the bullet journaling for bookworms class I’ll be teaching in January.
You know that feeling where you finish a book and you just have to talk about it? Yeah, me too. That’s why in addition to the “official” monthly pick, you can nominate any book for its own discussion group.
The book talk won’t be limited to individual titles, of course. In our member forums you can chat to your heart’s desire about the bookish life: share what you’re reading right now, or ask for book suggestions for your kids, or share photos of your latest bookstore or library visit. The MMD Book Club makes it easy to connect and chat with your fellow readers.
Membership in the MMD Book Club costs $10 per month and registration is quick, easy, and secure! The MMD Team has spent months trying to get all the details in place to create this bookish Internet oasis for you all and we hope you’ll enjoy it! Click here to get started.
