Welcome to the Cup of Coffee Book Club. A book club for travellers around the world to share their current read and exchange recommendations.
I am book obsessed.
One of my favourite things to do is rummaging through thrift stores and book swaps around the world and picking up some well read, battered books for my next read!
Before the days of Kindle, I would only ever take one book with me when I travelled, and once finished I would swap it out at a hostel book swap (most have them) and then do it again and again. I usually ended up taking home an old, coverless book which smelt funny!
But I also love to talk about books. I studied English at uni, and from then I loved talking to my friends about what we were reading and swapping recommendations. That is why I started my online book club early this year on Goodreads so that I could meet and chat to other travellers around the world about whatever book I was reading that month.
This is your official invitation to join!
About the Cup of Coffee Book Club
Firstly, Cup Of Coffee Book Club is an informal online discussion about whatever we are reading. You can opt in and out, and it is just a nice way of having a book chosen for you! I download most of the books on Kindle when I’m travelling, but sometimes I do a giveaway and we get to read a brand new book before it has even hit the shelves.
How it works
I select a book each month to read, and we talk about it the following month. You can send suggestions, and participate in the discussion as much or as little as you like. Some of the members just enjoy reading that months suggestion, whereas others love to get involved with the discussions.
It Is Easy To Join
You just need to have a Goodreads profile – either the app or using the website, and then join the Cup Of Coffee Book Club!
What we read
Everything! I love travel books, however often I pick a book which is something that you might just enjoy reading whilst on your travels, vacation, or tucked up in your own bed at night. I usually choose something that will spark an interesting discussion, and am always open to suggestions from active members.
For this months read I am doing a giveaway!
The book in question doesn’t come out until this week in stores and it is Wilde Lake by New York Times bestseller Laura Lippman. A suspenseful family thriller, it is the perfect travel read, great for a vacation or long plane journey.
I have 6 first edition hardback copies to give away, and it is super easy to enter. All you have to do is join the Cup of Coffee Book Club on Goodreads, and once you have done this you can enter below!
Please note that you must have joined the book club to be able to enter, but once you have done you can enter! This giveaway is only open to US residents only – sorry to all you none-americans. I will try my best to do a worldwide giveaway next time so that everyone can enter.
