So a few years ago, I tried to start a book club with the purge listeners that didn't really take off. Most likely for a few reasons: (1) The first book I picked, everyone hated and it wasn't even gay themed. (2) I picked 3 books a month and that was a little adventurous. (3) I approached it wrong and didn't tell everyone that I love crap fiction, not serious literature and they weren't going to get Oprah's Book Club selections. So, I let it lapse...
But after all the talk about the trashy, fun gay fiction I read on the past few episodes and my want for a kindle to read them on. I have received numerous email for book suggestions, so I thought, what the hell? Let's try the book club again. It even has it's own brand new website: www.mygaybookclub.com
This book club is for those of us that like a light gay read without the pretension of a “book club.” I always found that whenever I joined a book club it would be all well and good until we would have to read something like “East of Eden” or “Of Mice and Men” which are great books, but the conversations would be so snooty. I say to hell with that. We are going to read fun gay books with awesome characters, steamy sex scenes, and witty commentary on society that the gays pride themselves on. Whether we read on the toilet, right before we go to bed, or on the bus going to work, a fun read can lift our gay hearts (and penises.)
We will tackle one book a month which should be totally do-able for most of you and we can use the comments from the blog post to discuss. Be sure to give the book a star-rating. The new book will be posted on the first of every month, but feel free to catch up on previous months and continue the conversations!
