Last year, I was able to finally get around to starting my very own summer book club via Facebook. I was totally surprised by the amount of women who wanted to join. We started out with forty members and grew to over sixty member throughout the course of the summer. This year, I decided to change the name, take the book club off of Facebook, and have a real presence virtually. The new book club name is Cafe Blaque Summer Book Club.
Cafe Blaque Summer Book Club is an online group of readers. A book list is compiled, members comment about the books we read, chat about interesting literary topics, and meet new people. The book club does not have a particular theme that we stick to. The literary group exposes readers to all different types of authors. There will be opportunities for members to chat live with authors during our online chat interviews. In addition, we will give out monthly prizes and Free e-books for members weekly.
