Reading has always been one of my all-time favorite hobbies. But not only do I think it a great past time, I also consider good reading to be extremely healthy for you. It’s good for our brains, it feeds our souls, it makes us better conversationalists, it can boost our empathy and awareness, and the possibilities for learning are endless.
Last year, I added the tagline LIVE WELL | STAY FOCUSED to my blog. It’s how I want to approach every area of my life and reading is definitely one of those areas. I came close to reaching my goal for 2019 (45 out of 50), but I didn’t read as intentionally as I had set out to do. I intend to change that this year. And like I do with everything, I turned that desire to get something done into a project. AND because my community is growing (on YouTube, in Facebook groups and here on the blog), I’m opening the project to any of you who want to join along.
So, while I’m a bit bit tardy with this 2020 offering, I present THE LIFE WELL | STAY FOCUSED ONLINE BOOK CLUB.
WHAT IS THE LIVE WELL | STAY FOCUSED BOOK CLUB?
I have so many great titles on my TBR and I don’t just want to read them, I want to have conversations about them. So this will be a space dedicated to reading good books and having great conversations about them!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every two months, I’ll pick a book for the club to read. It will be a practical, non-fiction pick that will inspire and motivate you to live your life well and stay focused on what’s important.
WHY ONE BOOK EVERY TWO MONTHS?
Well, I figure you might fall into one of two main categories:
- You have a full life and reading isn’t a part of your regular routine. I want the LWSF BOOK CLUB to be the gentle push you need to find your reading rhythm without the pressure to read a whole book every month.
- You are a Book Nerd. You love reading and that TBR is chock full for the next 50 years. I want you to be able to be active in this space without feeling like you won’t have time to tackle the other reads on your list.
Or maybe you’re somewhere in the middle. Wherever you find yourself on the reading spectrum, I want this book club to be low stress and a place where you can find encouragement and inspiration.
WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE BOOK YOU CHOSE?
No hard feelings! You can totally skip whatever reads that are not for you! Along with the book club picks, I am also hosting a 2020 reading challenge and you’ll have the ability to choose the titles you want while still being an active member of the LWSF Reading Community!
WILL IT COST ME ANYTHING?
The LWSF Online Book Club is TOTALLY FREE!! The only cost to you is the purchase of the books you read 🙂
DO I HAVE TO SIGN UP ANYWHERE?
Nope! Well, yes.
No not necessarily because I will post all the things here on the blog and you can have access to all the content I put out for book club.
Yes because I do advise you to sign up for the LWSF Book Club email list. This list is exclusively for book club members and I will keep you updated on all things book club related. That way, you won’t miss out on e-nee-thing!
IS THERE A HASHTAG?
Yes! Use the hashtags #lwsfbookclub & #readwithelyssanalani whenever you post to social media!
I have ANOTHER question that you didn’t address above!!
