The SLP Book Club- Join Today!

Screenshot 2016-01-05 11.07.04

I love to read. This was evidenced in 2015 when I hit my personal best 103 books in one year (see the list of books here). As a blogger, I wanted to share my love of reading with all of you and make it into a blog-based conversation!

I am startingΒ a virtual book club, and you are all welcome to join me! I especially love fiction (adult and teen) and memoirs, so most of the books chosen for this book club will be of those genres. And… since this is an SLP book club, I figured we should focus on topics of speechie concern.

How to participate in the SLP Book Club:

  1. Book club posts will occur every 2 months right here on Super Power Speech.
  2. There will be 2-3 books discussed per post.
  3. Participants are encouraged to read one or all of the books. However, everyone can discuss the topics without reading.
  4. On the book club post, I would like as many people to comment as possible! Reply to each others’ comments. Let’s get a real discussion going.
  5. My leadership role will simply include summarizing the book from a bibliophile’s perspective and an SLPs perspective. I will include a few quotes to ponder.
  6. The rest is up to you! If enough people are interested, we could change the platform to a Facebook group discussion.

I really, really hope that this can gain momentum and we can get a good reading community engaged and participating in these book club blog posts. So, grab your library card, some hot coffee, and a comfy chair and let’s get reading!

Books for the first meeting February 25th will focus on “STUTTERING” (Amazon affiliate links):

  6. I would be interested in joining the SLP book Club. Great idea

  7. Jada Smith says:

    Yes, I’m interested! Sounds fun! I’ve noticed that most of my friends are fellow ST’s or OT’s. I think it’s because no one else truly understands our life! LOL

  8. I’m interested, but may not have time for all three. Which would be your top pick?

    1. I’ve only finished one of the books so far, so I don’t know. I would just decide on whether you like children’s fiction, adult fiction, or memoirs best.

    2. I just finished the last of these 3 books. Paperboy was by far my favorite. I read the whole book in just a few hours and am now making my daughter read it!

  9. I’m interested! Hopefully I actually come around to reading

  10. Allison D says:

    This sounds great – I’m in! πŸ™‚

  13. This sounds great. I just borrowed The Paperboy from our library. Thanks for putting this post out there for all of us.

  15. Hi! Great idea and I would love to participate now. However, I feel overwhelmed with what I have on my plate at this time. I will stay connected and hope at a future date join the reading club. Thanks!

  16. LouAnn M. says:

    I will definitely join you. I am currently reading “Out with It” so I have a head start! I also like listening to books while driving to and from work, so I will listen to “Black Swan Green.” Looking forward to it.

  17. Sharon S. says:

  18. I am interested! Thank you for doing this!

  20. Will this be connected with the current SLP book club on Facebook or Goodreads? I’ve read some good ones through there! Either way, I’m I’m!

    1. I’d never even heard of those until you commented here! Now I’ve asked permission to join both because I love to read! But no, they are not connected at all.

    2. Will look the one up on Goodreads too.
