Lit Collective: An Online Reading Retreat

Lit Collective: An Online Reading Retreat

In October every year I attend a reading retreat and read several books around a theme and then get together with a group of wise women from across the country to discuss these books in person.  It is an amazing experience.

One day I was talking online with some of my blogging friends Michelle from The True Book Addict and Heather from Between the Covers and mentioned my retreat.  They wanted to create one that is similar and we decided that we should have a online reading retreat around a theme and talk about these books and the theme on our blogs for a month.  We wanted to open this experience up to other bloggers and readers and thus The Lit Collective was born.  

You are invited to join us this March 2014 as we read 5 books around the theme of WWI.  It is the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of World War One this year.  

Here are the books we will be reading and discussing:
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
The Gendarme by Mark Mustian
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
The Perfect Summer: England 1911, Just Before the Storm by Juliet Nicolson

Here is where you can sign up to be an official member of the group on GoodReads:

I hope you will join us.
I am looking forward to this online reading retreat and discussing these books with all of you.
