Hey, Foodie Book Club peoples! How's the reading going? We're nearing the end of our first month with the club -- if you're new to us, we've been delving into Anthony Bourdain's The Nasty Bits. I'm going to be the first to admit I haven't yet finished the book. Between posting and work and freelance projects, races and training for our half marathon(s) next month, I'm only about halfway through.
It's like high school all over again!
And since I "own" the book club, I'm changing the rules. Just slightly. But to all our benefit. I had initially slated Friday as our universal posting day. As you'll remember, you may post anything -- as much or as little -- about the book. You may even get creative and make a recipe inspired by a chapter. Pick a section that you particularly liked and write about that. Or, really, this whole part is up to you. Reading should be fun, and in no way should our little book club feel like homework. That's what Stephen's for. After all, he's an English teacher.
Here's the deal:
- On Friday, I will indeed post the link list so you may sign up and post your blog. Please list the specific page (permalink) to your Foodie Book Club selection so people don't need to go searching on your main site. If I see just main site listings, they will be deleted.
- I will leave the posting option on this list open until NEXT Friday (that's Friday, 4/2) to give you a little extra time. See how that works? I'm changing the rules, and no one gets hurt!
- I'll be sure to make a pretty sidebar image so everyone will know where to find your posts. In return, I'd very much appreciate if you link back to the page with all the posts -- that way, the sharing can continue on and on and on.
- Don't have a blog? I'm pretty sure most of you who signed up do. If not, you may consider starting one on Blogger (or another site) . . . if you'd prefer to stay offline, just let me know. We can figure something out so you don't get left out!
Just FYI: The Foodie Book Club is boasting 46 members in its first month. Thanks to everyone who is participating! I'll also post another sign-up sheet for any new folks who'd like to take part and join us in reading next month's selection: A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg.
