When it comes to reading I’m a little focused on SciFi … but just a little bit ;-) But now there is something to help me to get over this: The ADN Book Club!
The concept is quite simple. Once a month a book is selected from a list of suggestions by voting. Then everyone who wants to participate has one month time to read the book. At the end of that month (on the last Saturday) there will be a discussion. I haven’t seen any details yet, but I’d assume that this discussion will simply center around the hashtag #bookclub. Right now there are still format discussions going on there, so you might want to follow this tag until everything has been ironed out.
While I’m not sure I will be able to fully participate (due to time constraints and tons of other books I still have in my backlog), I at least want to read the sample chapter available on Amazon.com with every book. And if I like a book, usually there that can stop me from finishing it ;-)
So on to the book due on December 29: “Those Across the River” by Christopher Buehlman. Normally I’m not a big fan of books taking place in the past, but that’s just the reason I want to take part in a book club: Reading outside of my little box :-)
