Do you like to read books? Hooray! We do too. Some of us are getting back into reading after a long hiatus (yours truly) and some of us are reading machines. Together we all cultivate communal conversation and adventure around the written word. AND you should know, that we are all pretty comfortable with our PERVOSITY, so the books that we present to the group for our Boho Book Club will have an underlying sex/sexual/sexuality theme.
Would you like to continue and read along with other like minded beings in our boho book club? All it takes is your willingness and consenting attitude to jump down this rabbit hole, and take it for a spin!
Communicate, discuss, and share Boho Book Club.
We are going to use our blog sidebar which you will always be able to access quickly from our blog to link to our boho book club island located inside bohocrush, and discuss all things about our current readings. Matt is quite familiar with the ease of engagement for book clubs. There is no requirement for participation, and don’t fret if others read more or less than you. This is a choose your own pace adventure.
Matt presents to you this effective guideline:
“I have found that a discussion about a given text can be enhanced if commentator’s thoughts and opinions are connected as much as possible to the text itself. So, for example, if you are arguing that a certain character unknowingly sabotages their home life, rather than simply state that point, you show how it happens using the text. “The first instance when Jenny threatens the peace in her house happens on pg. 42, when she comes home drunk. Her partner says, ‘Oh, I thought you were going to call me when you were finished with work…what happened?’ To that Jenny, under the influence, slurs, ‘Why are you boxing me in?!’” Or whatever.
My habit is to make notes in the text as I read, both on the page and on any blank pages in the book. This note taking helps me discover themes and connections I may not have noticed if I was simply reading. Moreover, I can look through these notes after I have finished to, again, look for themes and patterns. Taking notes like this makes reading more interactive.”
Now of course, you can read along as you choose. These are simply guidelines to help any and all who are willing to discuss in more detail with the group. No pressure! For those of you that enjoy the spank of rhetoric, jump in!
Georgette presents to you community guidelines, comments, etc.
1. I require that you are civil, and kind to all commenting. No hateful or hurtful reactions towards others discussions. If you don’t have something to say in an effective and constructive way, then we don’t need your participations. This is simply NOT going to be the best book club for you. Your participations will be banned.
2. If you have nothing to contribute to the group, and use the conversation thread to discuss unrelated topics, your participations will no longer be desired. Please keep to the topic at hand.
3. Enjoy yourself, stimulate your minds with others.
Recommendation: Share responses and respond to others responses to keep the conversation balanced. Listening is just as important as getting to be heard.
Our first book is Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. Selected by Matt. Get your copy locally if you can, or order online if you do not have a local book store. We shall begin this adventure Monday February 24th.
Any questions? Just ask!
to the pursuit!
