Shaymless Aymless Romance Book Club

After the great success of the Broken Wing Challenge. I thought we could start an online book club.

I don't about you but I've joined book clubs so that I can actually talk to someone about books. But it never fails when its my turn to pick a book for the upcoming month I usually pick a romance and then I get voted down or looked down upon since romance novels aren't "real literature" or at least that is what they tell me.

Well, pooh-pooh on them. Who needs their stinking, high brow "real literature"! They can keep their literature and I'm going with the romance, the happily ever after and those steamy sex scenes! Let us all be SHAMELESS and flaunt our bodice rippers and heaving bosoms. Who's with me?!

The particulars:
- One book per month. Must be a romance! ^_^
- A member of the club will choose the book for the month (order of choosing will be in the order of membership).
- Person choosing the book will host the discussion at the end of the month on their blog or this blog.
- Open to anyone who wants to join in for the fun and love of romance novels.
- Can do month to month membership (up to you whether or not you want to read the book. You can choose to skip the book of the month if its one that does not interested you.).


To join e-mail me the following information:
1. Screen name (what do you go by on the Blog-o-sphere)
2. Blog url (if you have one, if you don't it doesn't matter) so I link your blog.

I'm in, I think...depends on the book (sorry, I'm totally a picky PITA when it comes to books). Can I have a month-to-month membership?

SIGH. I know, high maintenance. That's me. :wink:

Aymless said...

Yes you can have month to month membership! We're not picky! *g*

Sarai said...

Oh Oh I want to join! I like being in the hip club and talking about books no one else I know reads!!!

Oh I work nights now so I won't be able to join in until later in the evenings does that matter?

lustyreader said...

sounds fabu to me! great idea, sign me up! i should also mention that i am a super lazy procrastinator. im shaymless about it ;) so im not the best with deadlines...

Aymless said...

*sigh* I meant doesn't matter if you join in late. Join in the discussion anytime you have.

Join/drop out of the club anytime you want too!

AnimeJune said...

I want to sign up for August - because I have practice makes perfect! Hooray!

orannia said...

I'll also be in on a month-by-month basis if that is OK Aymless? Sometimes I won't be able to get my hands on the book (it all depends what my library has) and my TBR list - if I'm overwhelmed with books then I may have to skip a month.

Aymless said...

Orannia: added to the list. You don't have to read the book picked every month. Read or not at your own pleasure. Its all about fun. I'll let you know when it's your turn to pick.

Renee said...

Sounds like fun! I'm in. :-D
Let me know if you want some help with the organizing. I'm also in a "literary" book club.
Yeah, no chance of romance reading in my book club either. lol

April said...

OMG! Finally a book club I can really enjoy :-)

Also, I have this book in my TBR pile.

Count me in please.

LeeAnn said...

Can I join too? I have the Julie James book and have been putting off. This is a great way to make me read it :o) And it sounds like a lot of fun.

Mandi said...

I'm in..sounds like fun:)

Kristie (J) said...

Sounds like a great idea - I can never discuss a book enough *g* so count me in too.

Rosie said...

I want to commit...does that count? I'll try especially since the August book is in my tbr already.

Aymless said...

Whee! More people! Cool.

Added Renee, LeeAnn, Mandi, Kristie(J) and Rosie.

Renee: Thanks will let know when/if I need HELP with this. *g* A girl can never have too much help!

Rosie: Taking the first step always counts! *g*

Aymless said...

Oops! April too! (in between Renee and LeeAnn!

April: e-mail me with your blog (if you have one)!

jayjay said...

I just finished this book so can definitely commit for once! Count me in:)

Aymless said...

Also funny about the books I read...

Will email you details...

Thanks...

Amy C said...

Hi Aymless,

I'd like to join as well, but I'm another who needs to do the month to month :).

It's a great idea!

Lea said...

Hi Amy:

I would like to join as well. This sounds like fun and would love to join in. (I hope I'm not too late.)

Best

Jill D. said...

I am TOTALLY in!! It's so funny that I just came across your post because I was just visiting my library's website to see if they had a book club. They do but the upcoming books they are reading are so totally BORING! Who wants to read a book that makes you think, LOL! I want to be entertained! So count me in! I missed this months book, but next month's pick The Madness of Lord MacKenzie is one I really wanted to read. I will be there with bells on!

Welcome JennJ and Jill D. Hope you have a good time.
