I received my latest copy of the Read It Forward newsletter published by Crown Publishing Group. It’s a great newsletter.  As I’m furiously preparing for the relaunch of The Literate Housewives’ Book Club, this feature in the August newsletter caught my eye. I don’t have any stories to share, but I know that a lot of you out there do, especially if you’ve been featured as part of the wonderful series published by Books on the Brain.


How did your book group get together (or fall apart)? What makes for exceptionally good discussions? For discussions that go terribly wrong? What’s the most creative thing you’ve done to make a book group meeting really special? All amusing and inspiring anecdotes welcome!

Share your favorite book group story by emailing us here – if we feature your group in an upcoming newsletter, you’ll receive a Book Group in a Box.


Even if you don’t have a story to share, you should really consider signing up for this newsletter. It has interesting information about books and authors and, best of all, chances to receive free books. You can register to receive this newsletter for yourself by clicking here. You can also send a copy of the newsletter to your friends from that link. Let me know what you think.

I just got a wonderful email from Random House / Crown Publishers.  They have an exciting new Read it Forward program that you can sign up for here.  If you send them an email, you can get some free advance copies while supplies last!

In addition to listing the Read It Forward books, they have contact information for Chris Bohjalian and Ann Leary and other great information.  Check it out!!!
