Progressive Book Club

Beginning today and continuing on the third Wednesday of each month, M L Swift will be hosting a discussion on various craft books and every third month we'll throw in a nice piece of fiction for good measure! Today's launch post is HERE

The Progressive Book Club: A unique blog hop that's an on line book club! Here's how it works:
  1. Visit the LINK HERE and sign up to take part.
  2. Write a post today on your blog which tells your readers about the Book Club and links back to the main page. Don't forget to add the badge.
  3. Note down the books that we will be reading
  4. Note down the next meeting dates - 20th February
  5. Source the book, either purchase it or borrow from the library 
  6. On 20 Feb write your post recalling two or three things the book taught you or inspired you. Perhaps a review or discuss the book. Add the post to YOUR blog.
  7. Add the the link of your posting to the Progressive Book Club page
  8. Visit 3 (or more) other participants.
  9. Have fun!
The book we are reading for 20th Feb is.......


Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott (237 pages)

The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe (336 pages)

I have already completed the reserve request at the library for the February book and I have already read the April book which you can read HERE. It is a wonderful book and I may well re-read again! It is a great choice!

  1. Hey Julie, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the book next month. It looks like it will be a good one.

    1. Yes I am looking forward to reading the book - it might arrive next week via the inter branch loan from Devon Libraries.

  2. Great post, Julie! I've been perusing through your most recent articles. FUN!

    Hey...you don't have to add the link to your post (#7) on the PBC page...the links are already there in the list.

    On posting day, just go to the PBC page of my blog and click on whomever you want to visit. It will take you to the home page of their blog, bringing up their last post (which should be the PBC one). The blog badge should be somewhere in the post.

    Thanks! :o) And for adding the UK links!

    1. Thanks for that. I added #7 in as sometimes I multi-post on a specific day!
