The Life of Bon: Let the voting begin! Book Club Style!

Let the voting begin! Book Club Style!

Alright girls, we are so close here to getting the coolest book club EVER started!  I have taken all of your suggestions in this post and out of them, comprised a survey.  The rules of the survey are this:  You can vote for five.  Choose the five books that you would absolutely love to read and discuss with an intelligent group of girls.  Some books don't require that much discussion whereas some books you just absolutely have to talk about with someone.  Consider that as you are choosing.  If you are wondering what the books are about the comments in this post gave tons of information, and of course there is always goodreads to help you find your way among the books.  Each participant gets five votes and the poll closes on Thursday.  At the end of the week I will post the results and our reading list for 2013.  We'll select a book for each month, starting in February so I will post the whole reading schedule for the year.  That way you will know ahead of time what we are reading, what books you need to request from your library, and what books you might want to sit out on.

Wow!  I feel just like Oprah.  Except way less powerful.  Now get voting!  I already know what five I am voting for!

  1. I'm not sure if it's working. Two of the books I voted for both indicate they have zero votes. Maybe they just haven't registered yet? IDK.

  2. Am I completely lazy if I picked books I've already read and know I loved? In my defense, I just want to talk to someone about them and pick someone else's brain! And I will not read 50 Shades of Gray, and no one can make me.

    This is such a fun idea, Oprah -- I mean, Bonnie!

  10. Eeee! I'm so excited! It took me awhile to narrow it down to 5 books. But thankfully some of the other books I was interested in seemed to be getting a lot of votes too. This is going to be fun!

  15. Hi Bonnie! This is Melanie Wilkinson(Johnson) I'm not sure how I stumbled upon your blog, but I'm so glad I did. I've been reading for a month or two and decided I would quit lurking and leave a comment!;) It's so good to see you are doing well. I love your book club idea and I'm excited to see what the final picks will be!

  17. Hi Bonnie!

    I just love your blog, and I am so pumped to join the book club. I've tried numerous times to set up a book club with my friends, but everyone always gets too busy to actually follow through with the plans. So thank you! I'm excited to read along! :)

    Keep up the good work!

  18. Hi Bonnie!

    I am very excited for this book club. Great things are happening here! I hope Great Gatsby ends up being one of the books. I haven't read it since high school.

    Thanks for organizing!
