Thanks for stopping by to visit. I thought I would share my listing of online or virtual book clubs since our theme this week is Book Club. My 2019 goal is to read two books per month.
I began researching these a few years ago when my Crohns Disease all but made it impossible for me to leave the house. I enjoyed reading and that was one of the few things I could do at home.
You may want to go to the book club meeting or online chat or like me you may just enjoy reviewing the selections each month and picking a few for your own reading list.

1. Hello Sunshine
Hello Sunshine is the company of Reese Witherspoon. She started a book club last year I believe and I have read several of her 2018 selections and they were all good. She has a Facebook page you can follow here.
2. Barnes and Noble
Barnes and Noble bookstore has started a book club in their store. It does not meet monthly, but you can find out more information about here. My daughter and her friend went to the Hurstbourne Lane Louisville KY location meeting last fall and said it was enjoyable.
3. Victoria Magazine
In December 2018 Victoria Magazine announced their inaugural book club selection would be Little Women. It looks like from their website here it will be an online forum discussion group.
4. Louisville Free Public Library
In 2011 the Mayor's Book Club started at the Main Branch of the Louisville Library. They meet on the third Wednesday of the month from noon to 1PM. If you work downtown this would be a great way to join a club and attend during lunch break! There is more information on their website here.
Finally if you are not interested in a book club, but just more book suggestions to read I have the following websites I found interesting:
Good Reads: this online site will give you suggestions broken down by category, help you pace your reading and more. This link here will give you their top 43 suggestions for 2019.
Style Blueprint: this is a southern website that offers local restaurants, shopping and entertainment articles, but also frequently lists books to read. This link here will give you their top 5 2019 reads.
Simon & Schuster: I recently signed up for an author forum at Simon & Schuster's website and since then I've been getting lots of emails about upcoming books. Granted they are only promoting their own published books, but still you get to read more information about the author and sometimes they email you presale discounts. Their website is here.
Do you have any other book club or online sources for good reads? If so please comment below and share! Have a great day!
