Literati is a book club membership like no other. By being a member, you will have an all-access membership to explore a world of exclusive content, author interviews, and celebrity conversations all in one community. Through the website or their easy-to-use app, you can access interviews with their Luminaries and the authors of the books.
Being a member of Literati allows you to be a part of an EXCLUSIVE BOOK CLUB with authors, leaders, visionaries, and YOU! Can you imagine talking about a book with Stephen Curry, Malala, or Susan Orlean? Well, you can with a Literati Book Club membership.
Through the website or their easy-to-use app, you can access interviews with their Luminaries and the authors of the books. There is a luminary for every life and learning interest. I’ve been a Literati member for over six months and have read and discussed books with Cheryl Strayed, Kelly McGonigal, Nicole Laeno, Susan Orlean, and now the Atlas Obscura club. Check out the seventeen Luminaries below.
Based on your own interests, or that particular Luminary’s book club choice, you can choose who to follow every month or change it up as I have. Each month, as a member, I receive a notification that it is time to choose my book club. I can stay with my current book club or look at the other book choices from other clubs and make a change. If you are active in your book club’s discussion, it may be hard to move from a group as you might lose connections you have made through that discussion. It is up to you and what you want to get out of Literati’s membership. I really enjoyed participating in the discussion around last month’s book, EATING TO EXTINCTION. There is such a wide variety of readers gathering together on the app, that the discussions are always interesting. Sometimes your Luminary starts the discussion and other times it is a fellow reader.
This month, I again chose Atlas Obscura, an award-winning media and travel company dedicated to experiencing the world’s wonders, as my Luminary. Some of their previous book club choices have been GHOSTLAND, WHY WE SWIM, and THE SOUND OF THE SEA.
When I saw this was the Atlas Obscura’s choice for June I was thrilled. This book was already on my to-read list. I love puzzles including word puzzles (I play Words with Friends and Wordle every day without question). I also love jigsaw puzzles. I can’t wait to start a new puzzle this summer. I have several on my shelf waiting for me. I also love sudoku and other kinds of puzzles like cryptograms. I was basically an only child growing up at home because my sisters were a lot older than I was. When my parents went on Sunday drives, you would find me in the back seat with a puzzle book doing word fill-ins or word searches or crosswords. I’m thrilled because our daughter loves to do those kinds of puzzles too.
