I am a confessed bibliophile. I love to read and I love to share books, and suggested reads, with fellow readers. After relocating to Central Texas a few years ago, well... I miss being a member of an active book club that discusses books. This is where you come into the picture. If you enjoy reading, have I got an idea for us.
As a way to encourage each other to read more books in 2018, let's meet here on the last Thursday of each month to discuss books we've read and books we are reading. I will put together a list of books to read to get us started but feel free to make some suggestions. Most of all, add your comments and join the conversation.
Since this is the last Thursday of January, and I did not prepare you for our 2018 reading adventure (i.e., publishing a reading list in December), I decided to recommend a quick read written by Austin Kleon, Show Your Work!. I really enjoyed this book and I selected it to remind me that I set a goal to show more of my work in 2018. As an added "Bonus", check out Austin Kleon's book, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative. AND, a second bonus, Austin Kleon's weekly newsletter is full of information, so consider signing up if you enjoy reading his books.
Let's start reading (and discussing) together next month. Here is a list of book suggestions for the next three months: February
- Artful Lives: Edward Weston, Margrethe Mather and the Bohemians of Los Angeles by Marc Aronson
- BONUS: Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland
So, now it's your turn. What are you reading?
