    Two Books Clubs in One Month?

    December 19, 2007 by Brandy Vencel

    Is it possible to be in two books clubs at one time? We will find out by the end of January. Both clubs are open for you to participate in!

    First, we have my second attempt at an online book club. Last time, I failed miserably. This time, Grace has decided to join me, and Grace is the person to make just about any event {virtual or real life} a grand success. Kristie is participating also, but I do wonder where she will post her thoughts as she hasn’t a blog of her own. Would you like to post here, old friend? You may, if you like.

    Anyhow, this first book is Secret Believers: What Happens When Muslims Believe in Christ by Brother Andrew. My goal is to have the book finished by the end of January, posting my thoughts as I go with an official review at the end, maybe the first week of February.

    If you want to read along with this book, let me know if you do not have a blog and would like to post your reflections here.

    The second book club is not my invention, meaning it will have more participation. It is hosted by Cindy and the book is Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson. I am reading it online for free because it doesn’t suit us economically to purchase the book. Si says he will read it with me. I have a feeling the book will inspire me to write more chapters of Back in the USSA, which I was planning to do anyhow, but maybe I will do it better after expanding my mind with a good book.

    Will you join me in this electronic conversation? Let me know and I will link to your posts!

    Grace,
    End of January it is! Kristie will just have more time to make her comments sound Profound and Well Thought Out.

    To anyone interested in the Economics In One Lesson club, the schedule was posted today. Please don’t be intimidated by the idea of six chapters a week. I scanned the book over a bit, and each “chapter” is just a couple pages.

    Hi! I’m excited that we’re going to do this virtual book club! So, I haven’t had a chance to even open the book yet. So, end of January sounds really good for me! Hope that’s ok with everyone!

    Ahh…confession time already. 🙂

    So, give me a preliminary review: how many stars (out of 5) would you give it? We’ll talk details after the New Year. 🙂

    Is now the right time to tell you that I already finished reading Secret Believers? Once I got into it, I finished it in a weekend! (Yes, that is some kind of record for me!)

    I enjoyed it, and I’d be glad to chime in with my thoughts here. I will, however, wait until you’ve read it. =)
