For those who are reading with us for the first time, allow me to explain what the club is and how it works.

A "Blogger Book Club" is when blog friends get together and read the same book for a specified period of time. I begin by choosing a book that can be accessed free of charge on-line. I have posted a link to the book on by sidebar so that you can access from here.

Each Monday I will post a reading plan, which will indicate what chapters to read and by what date. On the following Friday I will then post all questions on my blog pertaining to the weeks reading. At that time you can either answer the assigned question/s or simply leave a comment regarding the weeks reading.

Anyone in the book club can respond to the questions. If you have a blog, questions should be answered on your own blog. After you have posted the answers to your questions copy the url of your post (not your blogs main page) and paste it into Mr. Linky along with your name.

Book club question will be listed every Friday and will look like this:

Example Book Club Questions:

1. (Name of Book) has given us a few perspectives on simple living, please share your ideas on simplicity?

2. What might be some of the benefits of living a simpler life?

Example Book Club Comments:

Sarah said: This is in response to question #1- One of my goals for this year is to live a more simpler life. What I have done is gotten rid of all but one of our televisions. We now only have one in the family room, so instead of every one heading to there rooms and watch T.V. we watch it together in the family room.

Rita said: Question 2- Peace of mind.

Sue said: I am enjoying the book club. I have met so many great new people.

The book that we are reading is called
Thrift in the Household by Dora Morrell Hughes. A link to the book can always be found on my sidebar. Thanks for joining and happy reading.


  1. Thank you so much for starting this reading blog. I have always had a passion for books and it is so refreshing to find others who are likeminded with whom I can discuss books. I'm looking forward to this new adventure.

  2. I have a mutual passion for reading as well. I love to read and share great book with others who enjoy reading as well.

    I have chosen books pertaining to thrift but plan love to read all types of genre.

    I am planning to read three classics this year which are Jane Eyre, Jane Austen and Little Women.

    What are some of your favorites?

  3. Two of my favorite books are Little Women and Jane Eyre, and I love anything by Jane Austen.

    Since I am a homeschooling SAHM thrift and saving money are very important to our family. I look forward to learning more about it.

  4. What a neat idea! Thank you so much for stopping by Teen Lit Review and for your nice comment. I've read Pride and Prejudice and have a book collection of some of her not as popular stories I haven't read yet.


*Comments are moderated, and will not appear on The Wife at Home until I've approved them. Usually you'll see your comment published in under an hour, but it may take up to a day or so during evenings or over the weekend. While I am eager to facilitate civil conversation by publishing most comments, I am not inclined to publish those that strike me as offensive, vulgar, overly personal, cynical, snarky, deceptive, disrespectful, irrelevant, redundant or unnecessarily contentious. I also do not allow links to YouTube and for profit web sites or blogs.
