Homestyle Bookclubbin' - update.

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Have been getting more reading than usual in, a nice change. Joined up to an active Sparkteam Book club, which has been/is good....recommend it to anyone wanting to check out what an online book club is all about.

Libraries are still closed here in Aust. For now, there is a new home delivery service (sent via post) for all library members who sign up to receive it. The books are random staff selections. Just signed up to it today, will find out what they picked out to read in a few weeks time when the books get mailed out. There was a "Surprise Me!" option chosen in the mix, so will also find out what that button did too, on signing up!

Hope everyone's well, keeping safe, happy Sparkin'!

    Hi Gill - great to see a familiar sparker in the bookclub - welcome! I'm newish there myself (joined last mth) - I think I may have been born to be a bookclubber - whoddathort! Hope you are enjoying the e-book service your library is providing....once you are used to it, you may even want to keep on using it as a way to access books quicker if the physical version has a lot of holds on it, down the track - good luck with it!

    Gosh, a mystery book package from the library is a thrilling initiative! Our libraries are closed - but we have an on-line ebook lending service which I've been using. It's not the same as a real book - but it's still good reading :)
    I'm going to go and join that Book Club team too - thanks

    Thank you ladies!

    Alexsgirl1 - hope the 'click/phone and collect/drop off' system works for you over there, sounds like a good way of running it for now. Funny that the books being handled by people, get less quarantine time than the people handling them! John Lennon sang it best, "Strange days indeed!"

    Keep safe all, happy sparkin'!

    sounds great our library just opened for dropping back our books and next week we can pre order for pickup but with everyone doing the same thing this should be fun plus they have to let your books stay in quarantine for 7 days after you drop them off lets see how that goes
