Well Read Mom ~ My New Book Club

The 1st (sometimes 2nd…life happens) Wednesday of every month now promises something very special for me…

A chance to gather with new friends and discuss such rich and worthy books.

It has been a long time since I have participated in a book club– either I couldn’t find the time or I wasn’t really into the books.

Not anymore. I have found the perfect book club for me–one filled with great company, great books, great conversation and great sweets!

Now, my Wednesdays have a different tempo. I wake up ready to get through my day so I can get to book club!

What drew me in was the book selection (I love the fact that all the books are already selected) and the theme for the year, The Year of the Friend. It has been so rewarding to read (and in some cases reread) works looking specifically at the friendships that exist (or don’t exist).

Well-Read Mom is a movement of women who are accompanying one another in reading the classics, great books, and timeless spiritual works from the Western and Catholic tradition in order to awaken the moral imagination to a greater truth of reality.  It was started by Marcie Stockman who speaks and writes to encourage women. Marcie and her husband Peter have seven children and eight grandchildren and live in northern Minnesota where she is homeschooling their youngest daughter and teaching literature, writing, and Christian Studies as a part of a local academy.

I just want to say Thank You Marcie for doing this worthy work for women. It is a much needed ministry!

If you are looking for a book club or considering starting one, I would check out Well Read Mom.

Stay Encouraged, Be Blessed & Happy Reading!

  1. Thanks Cami, it has been exactly that–lovely! We just finished reading The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Tolstoy. It was so good–very rich (and disturbing). Tons to chat about. I am now working on All the Light We Cannot See.
