That’s right. Free books.
Today A Queerer Mirror is officially launching our new book club. But it’s not like any other old book club out there. The way it works is this.
- I am leaving five books around NYC for people to find. Each has a message in the front explaining it is a book club book and asking the reader to read it, pass it on, and check in right here at this post to tell us all how they felt about the book.
- I am offering five more books to you lucky readers. The first five of you to respond will receive a book of my choosing in your age range. The only things I ask are that after you read the book you come back here and tell everyone how you liked it and you pass the book on to someone else and ask them to do the same.
- I check back in with this post regularly to see what everyone is posting about.
- If it goes well, I’ll send even more books out into the world to grow our little book club even bigger.
For tonight, a little preview. I dropped off the first NYC book at a Little Free Library in Brooklyn and can’t wait to see if someone responds!
If you’re interested in reading one of the books but don’t get picked to receive it this time, definitely check it out at your local library and then come back and share your opinion. Or, if you can, you could even by your own copy and write our message in it so you can pass it on after reading it. Everyone is more than welcome to chime in and participate.
So there it is. The first five readers to leave a comment below will become our inaugural book club members and, once they’re selected, I’ll update this post with ALL the books that are being sent out.
Oh, and one more thing. If you can come up with a great name for our little book club and I decide to use it, there will definitely be eternal gratitude and some kind of fun prize in your future.
Until next time, happy reading!
