    Would anyone be interested in a book club? I was thinking of having an emphasis on feminist books/books written by women.

    What do you think? Any suggestions for what we could read? We could do a livestream chat or something to discuss the books. I’ve never done this before but it seems like fun!

      Thanks for the list additions @leasummer ! I hope we get a few more people interested because the more I think about it, the more I really want this book club to happen!

    I’m all in. I don’t really have any book suggestions, but I definitely want to read more, and I am quite curious about all the books listed so far.

    I love the idea of a bookclub. I’ve been reading Emma Watson’s feminist books on her good reads group one shared shelf . this month is The Vagina Monologues.

      I hadn’t heard of her book club until now, it’s really cool! I’m thinking of starting with “The Vagina Monologues” as our first book as well. What do you all think?

  • #8008

    Absolutely. I’m going to create a group for this right now.

    So are we reading The Vagina Ms as book 1 then?
