Since November 2021, I’ve been receiving the monthly Literati Book Subscription. Each month I choose a Luminary and then discuss their chosen book with other book club members. This online book club offers a book community where readers can engage in discussions led by the Luminary as well as other members. The book options are both fictional novels as well as non-fiction biographies, memoirs, or other books that offer learning opportunities in business, leadership, and self-improvement.
Once you become a member, you choose from one of 17 Luminaries to join their club. You can stick with the same Luminary every month or bounce around based on their book choices. Since I tend to like a variety of different books, I have chosen to bounce around, choosing Luminaries based on the books they will be discussing.
Since November, I have read and discussed books with Cheryl Strayed, Susan Orlean, Atlas Obscura, Kelly McGonigal, and Nicole Laeno. I think my favorite book choices so far have been THE PUZZLER and THE READING LIST. This month I have chosen Richard Branson for the first time as my Luminary. You can read about my other Literati Book Choices, HERE.
Check out this month’s Literati choice:
I have always loved space stories. One of my favorite memoirs to read has been ENDURANCE: MY YEAR IN SPACE, A LIFETIME OF DISCOVERY by Scott Kelly. This is the story of his decision to become an astronaut and his time on the ISS. So, choosing Richard Branson’s Club and book choice, AN ASTRONAUT’S GUIDE TO LIFE ON EARTH was a no-brainer which also chronicles Col. Hadfield’s life in space.
Richard Branson is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor, and founder of The Virgin Group.
Reading with Richard leads readers through powerful tales of adventure and advice. Through stories centered on leaders, non-conformists, and risk-takers, we find lessons that inspire perseverance and conviction. These are the stories that helped shape Richard’s Branson’s life—they’re bound to encourage the leader in all of us.

The Literati box includes a hardcover copy of the book, a bookmark, and a note from Richard Branson about why he chose this book.
