About This Club

This is for all you book worms!!! We are starting a club where we will read and discuss all things literature!
  1. What's new in this club
  2. All right all who are reading welcome back!!! So here is our next section! Read from "four o clock" to "Chloe set the table" I am doing small sections so people don't get overwhelmed. Also below is the selection that I have read and recorded. Please feel free to bring up some discussion topics as I feel after this chunk there is some stuff to talk about. I have some random award badges waiting so make sure to be active! What can You Do with a General - Part 2.m4a
  3. Ok guys sorry it took me a while but here it is. The recording of our first piece of reading! I do want to add trigger warnings for mentions of ||kidnapping and animal surgery|| Hope you enjoy! What Can You Do With a General by Emma Cline - recording 1.m4a

    A little reward??

    Please All congratulate @Sir-Northfor winning Novembers Star award for picking our reading selectiont. Sir North you should have the badge now!
  5. Aww I am sorry gigi! Feel free to not read this one! We should be done in a few weeks and maybe you could find something more lighthearted and suggest?
  6. Gosh this story is triggering me so far which is a bummer and very unexpected, lol. Sometimes the most subtle details or mundane things can bring back unwanted memories. But I do enjoy the author’s writing ability.
  7. Thank you for the feedback! It really helps!
  8. I really enjoy your reading and recording stories, and I would definitely listen to them. 💜
  9. "What can you do with a general" by Emma Cline. This selection was suggested by Sir North and they will be receiving a badge to display for picking our story. So we will start immediately. Below was a link provided for us to read for free! I want all of you to read until the sentence "At four o clock" then stop and we can all discuss! So for all of you reading this make sure not to read any further on this post until you are caught up. I wouldn't want any spoilers! Another question is that I have considered reading and recording our selections for people. Please let me know here if that is something that interests you. We will have 8 days to read the selection. So on November 28th I will release the next chunk for us to read. I am looking forward to this and hopefully we can all have fun and read some good short stories. Yours, Pigtail https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/02/04/what-can-you-do-with-a-general

    Thank ypu so much for your suggestion!!! We havnt had a ton of activity so congrats your option has been chosen! You will receive a badge. I will be posting more details shortly. Thank you again for your interest.
  13. I recommend "What Can You Do with a General" by Emma Cline. It is SFW. It is set in modern times during the Christmas season. The protagonist, John, is an older man that has gradually seen his influence decline after he has retired. This is especially true for his influence within his family. It is a great read and is available for free in word and audio online. Here is the link: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/02/04/what-can-you-do-with-a-general

    I was curious to see if Winnie the Pooh is analyzed and I stumbled across this: ••• … Of course, it isn’t true that the characters were originally written with these disorders in mind….The idea that Pooh, Piglet, Eyore, Tigger, and friends are each dealing with a mental health condition got its start in a paper, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal in 2000, entitled Pathology in the Hundred Acre Wood: a neurodevelopmental perspective on A.A. Milne. ‘We cannot but wonder how much richer Pooh’s life might be were he to have a trial of low-dose stimulant medication,’ write the researchers. Sarah Shea, the lead author of the paper, later told BBC News “the purpose of the tongue-in-cheek study was to remind people that anyone can have [mental] disorders…. ••• I had to giggle. I guess anything can be discussed at length. 🤭

    Haha no worries. I know lots of people read originals on Wattpad so maybe that is a good route?

    I was visiting my storage in my parents' basement and got distracted by the stash of books still there from childhood. Winnie the Pooh I pulled out to read to myself at night as that's one of my comfort stories 😊🍯❤️🧸

    A little reward??

    This would be for book club so it wouldn't nessasarily be me reading them. Although if there was interest I could see myself reading experts! Thank you for your condolences and thr compliment

    A little reward??

    I have a question: do you want to be able to read and record the story yourself or would you want links to YouTube follow-along reads or audio stories? I liked the October recordings 🥳 (Also, I'm sorry you went through a difficult time. 😔)
  22. Hello all and welcome to November. Thank you to all who participated in our Spooky Season. Sorry it didn't quite finish up, I had a tragedy in my life. But no worries I am back and want to offer you guys more fun. So in that spirit I am on the hunt for our next read. I have asked for suggestions in the past and not gotten a ton so here I am sweetening the pot a little. There is a "I Picked" badge that will be awarded to the person who's suggestion is picked. Rules are as follows: 1. You can enter however many titles you want. 2. Each story must be a short story. This is to make it more inclusive. 3. Feel free to suggest SFW and NSFW. (On that note please all let me know how you feel about a naughty or nice book) 4. If it has already been suggested the first person to suggest gets the credit. But we would love to know you enjoyed the same book. 5. Be prepared to tell me where to find it. 6. Please include a brief description. So to suggest just comment below. Can't wait to read with you 💕. Pigtail
  23. Thank you so much for these suggestions. I will try and get a few and credit you with the suggestion!
