Need Your Feedback :)

It's been a slow posting week around here for me. I've been working on a few things for the blog, reading (of course!), and been taking a mini-break from posting daily. I'm sure you've had plenty of other blogs to read in my absence!

Of course, a little down time has allowed the creative juices to start flowing, so I have a couple of ideas I want to run by you.

Book Discussions
I know there are a lot of online book clubs and in real life ones as well, but I just finished reading a book that I'm DYING to talk to somebody about. I'm not exactly sure how this would work, but I'm thinking the posts would be hosted here on i blog 4 books and people could comment away. It may be a one-post discussion or a series of posts over several weeks. I think most of the questions would allow for interesting discussion whether or not you had already read the book - but might actually prompt you to grab a copy next time you're looking for a new book.

Getting to Know You
The thing I've liked the most about hosting various authors for Blogside Chats recently is getting to know a bit more about them—including some totally random tidbits. It's just fun getting to know the people behind the book. I was tossing around some low-maintenance ways to get to know YOU a bit better. What about posting one or two random questions for you to answer each month? You could post on your blog and link up or just answer in the comments. Nothing too personal—just some bloggy fun. I know some of us—including myself—like to maintain our privacy out here on the inter webs. :)

So there they are. What do you think? Good ideas? Bad ideas? Would you participate? Can you think of a better way to do them? After all, they'll really only work with a little audience participation, you know?!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back with lots of posts and a fun announcement next week!

  2. I LOVE the idea of a book discussion. I am always reading something that makes me think and I want to talk to someone about but never have the outlet. I also wouldn't mind the getting to know you stuff. I can always make something up if I don't want the "truth" out there. :-)
