Hello, everyone! I am excited to announce that I am beginning a virtual book club called “Waiting for Merlot.”
I decided to create this virtual bookclub a few weeks ago when this quarantine began. I think it will be an awesome way to keep our minds stimulated during this time inside, which is definitely a form of self-care. (If you haven’t read my recent post, I genuinely believe that practicing self-care during this time is very important!) I also believe that this will be a great way to connect with others while inside, apart from Zoom meetings for work, conference calls, etc. Lastly, I do not know about anyone else, but I need something to keep my mind off of the news!
In the next week I will be revealing what book “Waiting for Merlot” will be reading and the timeline. In the meantime, I would like to invite anyone who wishes to join the bookclub! Comment on this post and I will be sure to add you to the list!
Essentially, this will be ran like any other book club. There will be an assigned book and we will all have about a month to read it. Then, instead of meeting in person, we will be meeting via Zoom or Webex. In the following weeks I will be posting more about the book club and how/when it will run. Something important that I want to highlight is: one does not have to be a woman to join the book club! All are welcome!
The only rules for book club are essentially being respectful and kind to all who are included. Like any good book discussion, there will probably be some disagreements and actual conversation. All of that is great! But, any instances of unkindness or disrespect will not be tolerated.
I think this can be an awesome way for us all to connect while being stuck inside. I am genuinely looking forward to “Waiting for Merlot”!
I hope to see some of you there!
