Book Clubs: Women and the Uses of Reading in Everyday Life | Elizabeth Long
96 posts | 1 read | 3 to read
Book clubs are everywhere these days. And women talk about the clubs they belong to with surprising emotion. But why are the clubs so important to them? And what do the women discuss when they meet? To answer questions like these, Elizabeth Long spent years observing and participating in women's book clubs and interviewing members from different discussion groups. Far from being an isolated activity, she finds reading for club members to be an active and social pursuit, a crucial way for women to reflect creatively on the meaning of their lives and their place in the social order.

Are there any Omaha area Littens who would want to start an IRL book club? My book club just decided on the books for next year... and 7 are by white men, which has me a little disappointed. The only selection by someone who isn‘t white is Becoming, which I already read & loved. I was just hoping for some more diverse & challenging reads to discuss in the next year.
📷 Chronicle Book Blog

Megabooks That‘s disappointing. I rarely read white cis hetero men anymore. They‘ve had enough years say! If I were in Omaha, I‘d definitely read with you! 18h
Amandajoy @Megabooks I‘ll read them sometimes, but I‘m definitely reading more diversely lately. And 3 of the books are set in the WWII time period 😕. I just need to find some more like minded readers around here, I know there‘s got to be some! 8h
Megabooks Yeah. I never used to think about it. Then I tried reading just women for a month, and I think my reading speed at that point was 20 books/month. It was just really eye opening as to what I‘d been missing. I still do end up reading men, especially in the investigative nonfiction I like, but I try to support the women who are finally being let in by buying theirs instead of just waiting at the library. And I am not a fan of WWII books! Good luck 🍀 6h
Megabooks My friend tried to start a book club in my hometown before I moved back, and all the women wanted to read fantasy, but like me, that‘s not her genre. So I don‘t think they stuck together long. 6h

Hey everyone!!! My postal book club is doing a Christmas markup postal book exchange on Facebook. If anyone is interested in joining one of the postal book clubs or in a Christmastime book exchange feel free to head on over and join the group! I know I had a lot of fun reading new books and getting to know new bookish buddies!

I‘m in the lucky position that I usually get to persuade/guide the selections for one of my book clubs... but if I were to be book club dictator for one year, I‘d choose all graphic novels. The above are what I‘d choose at this point in time. 😁

My book club is nearing that time when we choose books for the coming year. There are 6 of us, so we each get to choose 2 books. It makes sense & it works for us but OH! That I could choose all of them. 😉 If you were in charge, which 12 would you pick? I‘ll share my list in a separate post. Feel free to play! Share & tag! #myidealbookclub

If you are looking for a postal book club that includes journals instead of marking up a book, use this link to sign up. It is a 12 month journey with 11 other members from around the country. You pick your book and journal. You mail the book and journal to a member in your group, and you will receive a book and journal from a member every month. In one year, you get your book and journal back.

Hey @suvata and anyone else with the answer, when is the next round of #LMPBC? I missed this time and really want to get in again!

LibrarianRyan I think it would be for November. Because I'm on book 2 for Sep, which makes books 4 October. So new round November, unless they skip the holidays? I don't remember. 2mo
suvata I will start the sign-ups in the middle of October. So, @LibrarianRyan is correct. The next round will officially start on November 1. 2mo

cwarnier @Krystle13 there are great directions on the sign post, but basicly you sign up in groups of 4(no need to have 3 others we all fit together nicely. Then you pick a book mark it up over the month and send it off to someone else. You read the next ones doing the same and after 4 months get you boom back. I love doing this, it gets me out of my comfort zone and I read things I have never heard of before. 5mo

@suvata has opened up the next sign up for the #lmpbc! I‘ve participated in the last 2 and LOVE it! Done in groups of 4, you each choose a book, read it & mark it up with highlights/notes/comments, then the following month mail it to the next person in the group. You‘ll read 4 books in 4 months & will have a blast reading others comments as you make your own! At the end you get your own book back! Visit her post for sign up link! I‘m in GroupB!

@MrsGreen The book for #thebreakfastbookclub is going to be a little late. I'm going to try and read faster than I ever before lol. Also, @chelreads said she never got the next book. @Tiffy_Reads
@goodthinkrebel I mixed up the date for the #postlit book. I will be power reading that one as soon as I finish the other. Ideally it won't be more than a couple days late, if at all. @CareBear
Sorry ladies. Life and my mind have gotten away from me.

MrsGreen Not a problem at all! There‘s plenty of time. 1y
melyndarae @MrsGreen Okie dokes. I think it'll be a fast read so that helps me too. Lol. 1y
melyndarae @chelreads Did you ever get any books for #thebreakfastbookclub? 1y

It turns out that The Wish Granter is the 2nd book in a series, so I will go with the 1st book in the series instead: The Shadow Queen.

The Singing Bones does not really make a good fit for the whole markup/annotation thing. I pulled my copy off my TBR shelf and every other page is an art print & every other page is literally only one paragraph or less of text.

I am on a Fairy Tale kick right now so my options are reflecting this:

1. Curioser and Curioser by Melanie Karsak
2. The Singing Bones by Shaun Tan
3. The Wish Granter by CJ Redwine
4. Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

#LMPBC #GROUPC #ROUND3

BookwormAHN They all sound good, but I think The Wish Granter would be my choice 😸 1y
MaleficentBookDragon Which one did you choose? 1y
callunakeep @MaleficentBookDragon Sorry if I failed to tag you on that post; chose the Wish Granter then realized it was the second in a series so I ended up with The Shadow Queen which is the first book of said series. 1y
MaleficentBookDragon @callunakeep I think you did tag me. It is all starting to sound very familiar. 1y

Stalking Jack the Ripper is the winner! And I‘m actually in the middle of it now. So, what‘s the next step? How do we decide the mailing order?
