With a total of 17 Luminaries to choose from, there is certainly a book club for every reader. Based on your own interests, you choose a Luminarie that you think is someone whose recommended books you’d like to read. The website offers some of their previous choices so you can get a feel for who might fit best with your reading tastes.
This month I decided to change my book club, choosing Kelly McGonigal as my Luminary. Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist and author and is well-known for her TED talk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend.” McGonigal is the bestselling author of The Willpower Instinct, The Upside of Stress, and The Joy of Movement.
THE JOY COLLECTIVE
Kelly’s book selections are often rousing page-turners steeped in the science of our human brain. THE JOY COLLECTIVE will help you discover actional strategies to bring more joy, compassion, and resilience into your life. Feel connected to something bigger than yourself with books that explore our capacity to find hope, courage, and belonging. Books chosen previously by McGonigal include THE BEAUTY IN BREAKING, KLARA AND THE SUN, and PEACES.
Luminary Kelly McGonigal chose THE READING LIST by Sara Nisha Adams as her book club choice for February. This is what she had to say about her book club choice.
If you were asked to put together a list of books that have been inmportant in your life – that inspired you, surprised you, entertained you, or changed you – what books would you include?
THE READING LIST is a novel that takes one such list as its starting point, then introduces us to characters who serendipitously discover copies of the list. The characters are connected through the centers of their West London community – a library, a mandir, a grocery store, a yoga studio. Each character’s reading journey parallels personal stories of love, self-discovery, and loss. The heart of this novel is how the list leads to friendship between two such characters: retired widower Mukesh, searching for a way to move forward in life, and teenager Aleisha,struggling to balance family obligations with her own goals.
A cozy read that touches on emotional truths, this novel honors the role that books can play in helping us through difficult times. My favorite part of the reading experience was thinking about the list I would create. I look forward to seeing your lists in The Joy Collective.Kelly McGonigal
The discussion about this book and the book lists others have created is quite satisfying to a life-long reader. I could easily add several more books to my reading list.
The Literati box includes a hardcover copy of the book, a bookmark, a note from Kelly McGonigal about why she chose this book, and a booklet sharing the other Luminarie choices for the month.
