Hi Clubbers! How’s the reading going? We have been very silent & utterly busy. Have you? Check in with the group below!
(Yes, we are hosting a spin tomorrow. Yes. We are.)
We’d love to hear how long you’ve been with us, what your favorite classic read is so far off your list, or the one you can’t wait to read, some of the friends you’ve made through the club, what you’re reading next, how many times you’ve changed your list since you started with us — (Have you changed it? what inspired the change? how different does your list look these days, or have you hunkered down & remained true to your first impulse — and changed nothing on your list?)
Have you discovered any new favorite authors since we last checked in together? Have you read a book from your list that EVERYONE MUST READ NOW? Tell us about your project — or you! Introduce yourself. Chat. Tell us what you’ve read, how you’re feeling about your progress, how much you love the classics or the community — any struggles, a favorite read so far. Really, whatever you feel like sharing!
Some people prefer writing an update at their own blog and linking it here in the comments. That’s fine, too.
Feel free to respond to one another in the comments below — ask questions, visit each other, tell us you are new to the club, planning to join the club — etc. This is a meet and greet.
If you’re having trouble with your list and need encouragement, say that! That’s understandable. We want new classics readers to join us, so there’s nothing wrong with arriving to this thread with all of the newness showing!
(Please also note the “check-in” feature here is entirely voluntarily, intended for those who like weighing in with others in the group, and having a periodic place to reflect upon goals for the club. For some this feature would feel like an unwanted intrusion. Silent participation in this group is of course welcome!)
Thanks for sticking with us, or joining us, or being generally excellent!
Twitter hashtag for reading check-ins: #ccreadingupdate
