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 the 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. I have noticed over the last several months that not every Luminary is choosing to participate every month. For example, this month, there were twelve Luminaries to choose from. Some Luminaries are more interactive in their discussions while others kick off the discussion and let the readers take the lead. You just have to choose what type of experience you would like best.
Since November 2021, I have read and discussed books with Cheryl Strayed, Susan Orlean, Atlas Obscura, Kelly McGonigal, Nicole Laeno, Richard Branson, and Elin Hilderbrand. I think my favorite book choices so far have been THE PUZZLER, THE READING LIST, and THE BUDDHA IN THE ATTIC. I honestly haven’t had a chance to read all of them, but the great thing is you can always read the discussions on the book you chose at any time. This month I chose Elin Hilderbrand as my Luminary. I chose her book club in August 2022, reading Maggie O’Farrell. You can read about my other Literati Book Choices, HERE.
Check out this month’s Literati choice:
I really love reading family dramas, so this was an easy choice for me. I have also always been curious about Dani Shapiro’s nonfiction books and so this is a great way to jump into her writing.
So far the discussion on SIGNAL FIRES has been fun. Since it is about family secrets, others in the club have been sharing their own family secrets and other thoughts about spending time with family during the upcoming holidays. If this sounds like a fun or interesting discussion to you, definitely check out a Literati Membership.
The Literati box includes a hardcover copy of the book, a bookmark, and a note from Elin Hilderbrand about why she chose this book.
