Word Shakers : Sept. book Read – Open to Participants

Word shakers on-line book club is back on.  The plan – a book will be announced here every six weeks.  There will be a sign up form if you are interested in taking a part in the discussion that will go along with the book.  Questions will be emailed out to the participants to answer and email back.  Parts of the responses may be used in the post of the book review, as well as a Linky set up to link all your reviews too.  *You do not have to be a blogger to participate in this book club.

If you have already read the book you are still welcome to join in.  A six-week window will be given for each book to give participants enough time to secure the book and read it.  If you would like to be included in a mailing group that will be notified each time a new read is announced, leave me a comment below saying so and I will add you to the group.  (*You do not need to post your email, I receive it with every comment)

Where did word shakers come from?  I read a lovely book called The book Thief, and if you have not read it I highly recommend it.  There is a part in the book when one of the characters writes a story involving a word shaker.  The whole story is beautiful, and if you have the opportunity to read even the word shaker part of the book it is pages 445-450.  The part that touches me deeply is:

THE BEST word shakers were the ones who understood the true power of words.  They were the ones who could climb the highest .  One such word shaker was a small, skinny girl.  She was renowned as the best word shaker of her region because she knew how powerless a person could be without words.

I think this one touches me so because I am a word lover, much like many of you, and therefore – we are all word shakers.

  1. I like the sound of this book. No time to do it now, but wish I did. Fear of commitment : ) It is so hard to catch up when you get behind and I seem to be behind on everything right now.

    • Its a win win for me Pat, this was in my TBR from BEA, its a bonus if I can find others who would like to read it with me 🙂

  2. As The Book Thief is one of my favourite books I am tempted to join in with Word Shakers… but then I do already have a stack off books (and more on their way) to read. Hmmm… Still, what a great idea! 🙂

  3. Hi Sheila! Just wanted to let you know I currently participate in The Buys Moms Book Club hosted by Outnumbered Mama at Busy Moms Who Love To Read. I really like the way she hosts her club. Just wanted to let you know in case you are interested!

    • Hi Julie _ I will check it out, at least so I can link it here so others can see it too. Thanks for letting me know about it. 😀

  4. I’m glad that you’re going to do this every 6 weeks…I’m feeling a bit behind right now but I hope to have those reading commitments done so that I can join in with the next book!

    • No problem Staci – I know that feeling well. When it fits in your schedule, we will be here 😀

    • Hey Care 🙂 I see you are currently reviewing and discussing your book choice… when you pick a new one let me know and I will change the link for you to current 😀

  5. I just ordered the book so I guess you can sign me up! I didn’t do express delivery. I hope Amazon comes through for me by late next week. 🙂

    • Yay Barbara! You are a great asset because you provide excellent questions 😀

      Thanks for the link – too- LOVED the interview with Marjorie!

  6. I would love to receive info on this club.


    • Lori! Bookie pal! 😀 I am so glad to see you here and would LOVE to have you be a part of this! 😀

  8. When I finish all of the books I need to read (ha!), I will read this, this book club will become my new best friend, and I will have a whole new stack of things to (semi-)devour.

    • LOL Robby – if you ever get to the end of the pile of everything you want to read, let me know how you do it 🙂

  9. I’d love to participate. Just one question, why every 6 weeks instead of one book each month?

    • HI Vicki, yes, every six weeks… giving people a chance to read their tbr’s and secure a copy of the book 🙂

  10. I’ve had this book on my list of books to get for quite some time, I guess I better “get it” if I’m going to read it and participate.

  11. Hi Sheila I am so excited about this!! I would love to get the email updates for which book we are reading. Thanks!

  13. Count me in! I’ve wanted to read this for awhile now. BTW my email address has changed since I first expressed an interest in the book club. I will provide my new address on the form.

  14. The book sounds amazing! Definitely still interested! This is a great idea and I’m so glad that you’re hosting this!

  15. I have this book, and I’m ready to rumble…I mean discuss it! lol! I’ll send you my review when I get it done. This is exciting! I’ll put your button on my blog!

  16. This is a great idea; and it sounds like a great book. But I’m focusing on completing a few challenges in August. Please add me to the e-mail list, though. Hopefully I can participate in the next one.

  17. I am a wee bit (okay a lot) slower than others. Is the book The Wife’s Tale? I ask because I need to obtain a copy so I can fully participate and review the book and promote the group!

  18. Now if you know how I add your button to my WP blog, I would be very grateful. CSS coding and are are not the best of chums.
