I was very curious to see this Momversation. It started out “back stage” as it were. All of the “momversationalists” get an email at the end of the week saying what’s happening for the next week, i.e. “Daphne is going to start our conversation on Monday with “would you leave a cheating spouse” and these moms will do that one. Anyone who has a problem, speak up.” This one week there was to be a guest panelist and Mindy sent an email saying “welcome aboard and I have your book on my bedside table.” The email is like a forum, it goes to everyone on the list. The guest said she had Mindy’s book on her bedside table. Then everyone piped in about what they were reading, could no longer read, then it became what happened? We use to be readers and so forth. Maggie ( of Mighty Girl) proposed expanding on something from her blog about “what books changed your life?” And this Momversation kind of became a blend of both.
I talked about other books then are in this video as I am sure the others did as well (and darn it, I forgot to mention “To Kill a Mockingbird” but Karen does).
But, let’s have a coolmom book club here. Not that kind where we all run out and buy the same book, but “talk” about what books mean to you and what kind if any do you make the time for?
