Last month, we introduced the idea of starting a ChurchMag Book Club and with a lot of support, we are going to move forward with it!
I put a poll up in our ChurchMag Facebook group on if we did the book club, which book would people want to do first and I think we had a runaway winner:
So the first book of the ChurchMag Book Club will be Building A Story Brand by Donald Miller.
How To Do A Digital Book Club?
Now the question is, how do we go about having the book club. Honestly, we had such success with the From The Garden To The City Blog Tour that we probably will need to replicate it.
There will be two types of participants with this book two.
- Read It And Blog About A Chapter. We want this to be a discussion of the book and if it is just me giving my thoughts and you guys telling me way more creative stuff, that doesn’t seem like a book club. Instead, I want to have each chapter of the book have a different person write their perspective and us all comment on that blog article. I’m thinking one article per chapter per week which will give everyone time to read through that chapter and have a full discussion with the blog article when it is released. We will make sure all blog articles are written before any of the articles will be published to ensure a regular posting frequency.
- Read Along And Comment. Some if not most of you will not want to write your thoughts and that’s perfectly fine. We would LOVE to have your feedback on each article, a discussion of the person that is reviewing the chapter, to have a discussion of the text.
If you do not already have the book and want to be a part of this book club, leave a comment down below letting us know you want it and the first ten will get a copy.
Do note we are using OneBook’s free service and if you have already collected an audiobook, you will not be able to collect another for free.
