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.
