I feel so very lucky to be a part of Great New Books. It was over a year ago that I was asked to join this team blog and I have loved every minute of my time with this amazing group of women.
Each week, one of us recommends a favorite new book on our site. We do not accept books for review so all of the books we talk about are titles that we have found on our own and loved. I knew I would love being a part of a group that talked about books but this group has become so much more than that. After the weekly post goes live, our fantastic leader, Jennifer King, sends out a group e-mail. This e-mail is part business but it is also friendship, support and humor. Each week I look forward to our check in and I truly love to open my e-mail each Wednesday morning. I know I will learn more about the women behind Great New Books, their families and what they are loving and what is scaring them in their lives. We have become a sounding board, a support group and a cheering section. Of course, we also share the books that we are currently reading so every Wednesday you can be sure my to-be-read pile grows taller.
As we reach the end of the year, we will be sharing group posts, the first of which runs this week.
Please head on over to Great New Books to discover our favorite book of the year and share your own and maybe learn a bit more about these women who I am proud to call my friends.
