Big Magic Elizabeth Gilbert Book Club Questions

I have a little Book Club I run with some friends in Marina del Rey and I’ve just put together my Big Magic Discussion Questions so everyone can join along! Big Magic – Creative Living Beyond Fear is the latest book by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love.

The book is set-up like a bunch of helpful essays providing insight and advice on living a creative life. I found Big Magic exceptionally helpful because it gives me permission, it dumbs things down and presents things from a different angle which make a whole whack of sense.

Because the book was made up of essays, it was a stop and go read. I would pick it up, forget about it and could pick it right back up again. If you’re thinking of reading Big Magic for your own book club, check out Big Magic Discussion Questions below: (more…)

Book Club: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Welcome to September Book Club!

This month we are sharing discussion questions for The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I’ve posted a few book club questions below that you can use for your own group, or if you’d like to discuss it with us in the comments!

Overall, I enjoyed this book and found a few helpful tips. I’m already a bit of a minimalist already and there were a couple things that I do already do. What I liked is how Marie Kondo gives you permission to get rid of things – it’s ok. If an item doesn’t spark joy, get rid of it! Only surround yourself with things you love – I mean who can’t get on-board with that? So let’s discuss!

Book Club: The Girl on the Train Discussion Questions

Book Club is coming up again next month and I’ve put together The Girl on the Train Discussion Questions so everyone can join along. I read the book in one all-nighter in just FOUR hours. It was griping and suspenseful that I couldn’t go to bed until I knew who did it! I started at 10:30 PM reading in bed and stayed up until 2:30 AM finishing the book. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is the perfect book for a long-haul flight – time will fly. What an impressive debut novel for her as well!

 

***SPOILER ALERT***

 

If you haven’t finished reading the book, I advise you to NOT to read The Girl on the Train Discussion Questions below. If you have read the book – please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section of this post.

For our Paper & Glass Book Club Members, we’ll have our big discussion next month – but please feel free to leave any initial thoughts and save the juicy stuff for our meeting. So let’s discuss!

 

1) How did you feel about reading the book from different points-of-view? Did you find there was a difference in voice for each of the characters? Was it difficult to keep switching into the head of each narrator? (more…)
