“A reader lives thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin
A few years ago I started a book club with a few friends in town. Each month we gather to discuss a different book, but the conversations always meander between books, work, family, parenting, and life. In an age of so much noise and distraction, having a few hours of meaningful conversation is not only a welcome respite, but deeply rewarding.
I want to build that same sense of community and connection on this blog, and I can think of no better way to bring people together than a shared love of reading.
Whether you’re an avid reader or someone who always wanted to read but didn’t know where to get started, welcome to the Compound Book Club.
My plan is to dive into some of my favorite books I’ve read and re-read in the past (see here for one example) and new ones along the way.
We’ll start out with “Beneath a Scarlet Sky” by Mark Sullivan. If you haven’t read it yet, you’re in for a treat. It’s a truly remarkable story that takes place during World War II in Italy.
I’ll share my thoughts on the book and some questions for discussion in an upcoming post.
