We Have A Book for September!

It was a nail biter! Two excellent books and it literally came down to the last minute. But in the end Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean At The End Of The Lane was left standing by a margin of one vote! No time to tarry! Let’s do this!

#blerdbookclub chat with Guest Author: Kiese Laymon author of Long Division

We are excited to announce that Kiese Laymon (@kieselaymon) author of debut novel Long Division will be our guest during the live #blerdbookclub chat on twitter January 5th at 4:00pm (EST).

Say what, what?! Yes, that’s right!

 Long Division is one of our book club reads for December. In summary (no spoilers, promise!) the novel is set in Mississippi and interweaves two stories set in different eras (1985 and 2013) that both revolve around two characters named, City Coldson. Hold up. Do I detect a time travel, and element of Science Fiction in this novel? Maybe. Read more about Kiese Layman via his website here.

The weekend is almost upon us so I’m definitely looking forward to some rest, relaxation and swan diving into a good book!

Have you read or picked up a copy of Long Division? If you have any questions you would like us to ask Kiese Laymon during the #blerdbookclub chat, leave them in the comments below or tweet/DM  to  @blerdbookclub.

Happy readings!

The Blerd Book Club: Monthly Reading and Discussions


Hey Blerd Book Clubbers!

We’ve had so much fun reading and #blerdbookclub chatting about books on twitter! We’re excited to be a part of a growing, engaging and positive community! Since we’re all about our love of books and chatting about them, we’ve written a little blurb about our monthly reading selection process to make it easier for members to follow along and participate in book discussions.

A few details about book suggestions, monthly discussions and how to cast your vote for the Month’s reading nominations are as follows:

A book poll will be featured on the Blerd Book Club home page on Goodreads.  Scroll to the bottom of the page  to view Poll for the month’s nominations. Selecting “comments” to view the full details of each poll.

Updates and reminders are posted and tweeted out when book voting is opened.

Monthly reading requirements 

Reading both book selections for the month is entirely optional. We’ve added a second book option because…well, we really like chatting on twitter, and adding fun and variety to our chats!

Book Discussions

We have the full month to read the book selections. The monthly #blerdbookclub chat schedule is posted  here. Join in and hashtag-it-out, with us!

Think you might miss a chat? No worries. Life happens. We are also on Goodreads, and we open book discussion threads for The Blerd Book Club forums. Feel free to peruse the forums or open discussion threads of your own!

We are many minds wrapped around a good book. Happy readings and we look forward to discussing our monthly book selections with everyone!
