Ah, yes. The KingwoodReads Book Club. Also known (thus far) as the Epic Fail Book Club. Allow me to explain.
I’ve held five meetings so far, two of which had zero attendees (The Silent Wife by A.S.A Harrison and Sin in the Second City by Karen Abbott) and another that had one intrepid reader (Help, Thanks, Wow by Anne Lamott). Do you understand why I’m calling it the Epic Fail Book Club?
Now onto the second part of the title of this post: I shall persevere. Here’s the thing. I know such things can often take time. Especially when the meetings take place during the Sunday school hour at my church. I’ll admit that my attempts at publicity have been less than thorough, and somewhat sporadic. I’ll also admit that perhaps my book selections aren’t the most intriguing.
So my plan is to do a better job with both the publicity/public awareness and the book selections. I’ve already changed a selection that seemed less than awesome. And I’m going to create a KingwoodReads newsletter. You can sign up for it here.
Now, if you’re at all familiar with the KingwoodReads Book Club (or if you read about it here), you’ll know that I provide a light breakfast and a drawing for the next month’s book from among the awesome people who show up. So since no one showed up to the Sin in the Second City meeting, the February book, The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh O’Brien is still in my hot little hands. I was considering exchanging it for something else at the bookstore, but then I thought I’d share some love instead. So here’s a nice little Rafflecopter giveaway (US only). The winner will receive the copy of The Vault of Dreamers and a couple other little goodies.
Oh, and one last thing:
