Ms. Pillowz and DJRelat7 cordially invite you to to join us at
the Dust Off Your Books Club!

Introduction

As some of you know, I guest blog once a month for DJRelat7 on her blog, My Pocketful of Thoughts.  Great blog, if I should say so myself.  One day we were talking about books.  It turns out that both of us have purchasing moratoriums on them.  The reason being is that we already have SOOO many books that we haven't read yet.  We realized that we need to focus on reading the ones we have first before buying new ones.  It was during this discussion that the Dust Off Your Books Club was born.

How Does it Work

It's simple!  First, join Live Journal (free), then become a member of the Dust Off Your Books Club community.  You can also do a search for "Dust_Off_Books" in the LJ search box.  Then, make a commitment to read one book a month.  Be sure to tell us what you have chosen to read.  Throughout the month, come back and post a quote or passage, (or a few), that have spoken to you in some way.

As DJRelat7 says, "This is not a "Pick a Book and Discuss It" club."  We simply ask that you never give specific details about your book.  The idea is that since everyone won't be reading the same selection, we don't want to spoil it for someone who would like to read it later.  Once you've completed your book(s), give it a letter grade of A through D, with A being the highest.  Also let us know if you would suggest it to others.   Simple enough, right?

I, personally, love this idea.  I would love it if when people come to my house, take a look at all of my books, and ask me if I've read them all, I can go from saying, "I've read some or quite a few of them" to "yes, I've read every last one."  :-)

Feel free to join and make sure to tell all of your friends about it!!  And be sure to friend us:  Ms. Pillowz - http://mspillowz.livejournal.com & DJRelat7 - http://djrelat7.livejournal.com/.
