Purple Fig Club 2015

It was very nice to hear from all of you ladies that you would like to do another round of books next year! I'm pretty excited about it too, both because it keeps me in touch with all of you and because I've gotten to read a number of books over the last two years that I might otherwise not have that were truly enjoyable.

I wanted to put up an entry solely dedicated to thoughts around next year's reading. I know it's only November, but if you're as busy as I am, Christmas will be here before you know it, so it can't hurt to start thinking about it now. 

I've kind of enjoyed the randomness of switching between nonfiction, classics and modern fiction, so I don't know if I want to come up with any too-specific categories for 2015. However, I can't help but entertain other ideas...

Thought #1:

What do you think of picking 2 new books each and maybe 1 other book that you've already read that you think the rest of us would enjoy? My thinking around that is that it would give each of us a chance to either re-read a book we've been wanting to get back to or just take that month off to get a bit of a break during the busy year.

Thought #2:

I don't want to be too restrictive, but it might be fun to have a theme (books from a certain decade/century, books that were awesome before they made movies out of them, books by only English writers, etc.). Any theme could be interesting ... if you can think of a fun one, please volunteer it.

I don't know. We don't have to do any of these, per se. We could stick to the way we've been doing it ... just trying to think outside the box to keep things lively.

Let me know your thoughts!
