Online Book Discussions: The Book Club

Book talks are useful and entertaining.  Sometimes we wonder if a book is worth reading, if it’s worth the time it takes to read from beginning to end.  One of my favorite books is 48 hours long on audio; another is only two; both require hours of my life.  Book trailers and talks give us enough information to judge a book by more than its cover.  Book talks also help us to understand books that we have read on a deeper level.

During Christmas Break, I discovered The Book Club with Michael Knowles.  These are book talks with a different guest each month.  I have since listened to every episode, and I’d like to share one in particular with my Homer High students:  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Listen.  Give the book a try if you are so inclined. Look beyond the cover.

This book has stood the test of time for good reason.  It is ranked #10 in popularity on LibraryThing with over 66,000 members claiming it as part of their collection, virtual or real.
