Hey everyone ! Just wanted to send out a reminder that book club will be held tomorrow April 30th, 2023 at 6 PM PST via zoom.
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 652 852 6094
Come as you are, this is a safe space, no negativity will be tolerated, I will kick you out. You have a voice, use it! I want to hear it and you. I encourage everyone to speak and share their thoughts or opinions however please be respectful if someone else is speaking. Let’s pour a glass of wine or some coconut water, throw our hair up into a bonnet or bun, relax and dive into a high vibrational conversation.
I strongly encourage everyone to utilize the community chat on Discord to hold yourself accountable or if you just need some words of encouragement along the way. Some weeks you may find it easy to read through the sections other weeks may be a bit more tedious. Whatever your position is just know you have a community willing to support you and your journey.
If you need help accessing the discord group chat DM @thedr.zee on IG.
As you read, feel free to share inspiring quotes within the chat during the week or some points in the book that stood out to you.
Book club will run between 60-90 minutes so you may want to have some snacks on hand.
As we get to the end go the book, I always recommend people to read a books notes and acknowledgments.
AJ’s Book Club Etiquette:
If you would like to speak please put a click raise hand via zoom, so there are no interruptions.
Please RSVP via substack by commenting on the newsletter
Please arrive on time, Book Club will always start promptly at 5pm PST, if anything changes you will be notified.
If you are entering late have your device on mute.
READ THE BOOK! If you haven’t finished the book but decide to attend book club, be prepared to hear spoilers. Life happens, I understand sometimes we don’t get to do as much reading in as we’d like and it’s totally okay.
COME PREPARED. Spend some time before the meeting thinking about the book. Bonus for bringing discussion questions
SPEAK UP. Contribute to the discussion! Book clubs work best when everyone participates
LISTEN TO OTHERS. Your fellow book club members want to hear your opinion — but they also want to hear everyone else’s. Don’t interrupt or overly dominate the discussion.
BE HONEST. Most of us join book club because we want a richer reading experience through discussion. That can only happen when we share what we really thought or felt about the book or section. It’s completely fine to dislike a book that someone else loves. We’re all entitled to our opinions. But BE RESPECTFUL. You can disagree with someone, but always do so respectfully. Keep an open mind.
HAVE FUN! Why are we book clubbing if we’re not having fun? Don’t worry so much about the book club rules and expectations that you’re not enjoying our book club! I want you to leave a level higher than when you came in.
