Let’s read some books
At Your Leisure
What is AYLOBC?
At Your Leisure Online Book Club (AYLOBC) is a pressure-free book club where I will share a book I’m reading and you can decide if, when, and how you will read it. When possible, I’ll try to get a special sales price or coupon.
Who will like AYLOBC?
At Your Leisure Online Book Club is for anyone who wants to belong to a book club for book suggestions but doesn’t need another commitment or deadline.
- Not sure if you want to read each book? No problem.
- Not sure if you want to finish a book once you’ve started it? No problem.
- Like one of the suggestions but not sure when you’ll read it? No problem.
- Not sure if you want to chime in or not? No problem.
How does AYLOBC work?
At my leisure, I’ll share a book that I am reading or plan to read via email and my website, and I will include my reasons for choosing the book and/or what I think the book has in common with the themes of the books I’ve written or am writing. Ultimately, I’ll share a full review. At your leisure, if at all, you are welcome to use the comments section to add your impressions of the book and join your fellow readers! While I’m all for a good debate, I’d ask that all comments be respectful. Down the road, if there is a demand for it, I’ll consider setting up a members-only group page on Facebook or in Slack so that we can share our feedback with each other in confidence and leisurely, of course. But for now, let’s try using the comments section.
How can I share my feedback IF I want to?
To share your feedback at your leisure, please use the comments section on the sub-page I will create for each book. Or please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to keep your thoughts private. Also, if you like a book, please also consider sharing a positive review online with your favorite vendor and/or Goodreads. Depending on the turnout to this group, and the vibe, I’ll consider starting a members-only Facebook group or Slack group so we can share our feedback in confidence with each other.
What’s my first pick of 2020?
Coming Home to Greenleigh by Cassandra Austen is American Literature and takes place in New England. The tone and content of this novel remind me of the author, Fannie Flagg’s work but with a northeastern setting instead of the southern states. Like my novels, Coming Home to Greenleigh is told from multiple points of view and deals with identity and life choices. The pace and the author’s voice are smooth, making for an entertaining but relaxing read.
The author is offering an ongoing discount to my subscribers for 99 cents (her prices elsewhere will be going up). You can order it here for the discounted price.
It’s also available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and more.
