Are there any other KC bloggers out there who would be interested in starting up a book group?
Bloggers are people who, almost by definition, read a bunch, keeping up with dozens of blogs in a week, if not in a day. We also are people who are good at organizing their thoughts for posting – two qualities that make ideal book group participants. Throw in the fact that there are a bunch of crazy, diverse, and intelligent folks that blog in the area, and I think we’d get a great group together. I was thinking of trying it as a one-time thing, meeting at a centrally-located bar for drinks and discussion. And if the response is good, it could then develop into an ongoing thing. And it’d be a great excuse for a blogger meetup, if nothing else.
And if you’re interested but can’t make the book group for whatever reason and want to play along at home, you can post your thoughts on your blogs. We all can than comment back and forth, prompting further discussion, expanding the conversation.
So if anyone’s game, leave a comment or email me at the gmail at gregg dot winsor and mention what kinds of books you like to read. Anyone who has a blog in the KC area is welcome. And if you’re already in a book group that might need a new member, keep me in mind.
