Bookclub Book #7 Release

March 31, 2008

Let’s get ready for another bookclub read: Obsession, Deceit and Really Dark Chocolate by Kyra Davis. For additional information, go to the book page here or in the sidebar under ‘Book #7‘.

What does this book have in store for us? One never knows, so join in and see.

Off we go on yet another book adventure! (aka ‘escape from reality’, whatever works.)


Wrap-Up and Book #7

March 30, 2008

With Book #6 behind us, now’s the time to post any final comments or thoughts you want to share with the bookclub AND to post suggestions for our next book.

  • Any closing thoughts on The Alchemist?
  • What do you think we should read next?

The Chicken Lit’ers want to hear from you!

Discussion #2: The Alchemist

March 28, 2008

Now we’re on with the second discussion for book #6, the quickest read in bookclub history. This time I thought we should try to approach a couple of the questions listed in the Plus: Insights, Interviews, and More! section at the end of the book. With that in mind, following are some key questions for you to ponder and post about in the comment section:

  • Do you agree with Santiago or the crystal merchant with regard to dreams – is having the dream or achieving it more important?
  • Can you define your ‘Personal Legend’? When were you able to first act on it? Did you experience beginner’s luck in pursuing your Legend? Have you experienced obstacles along the way? What, if anything, more will you need to be successful in reaching your Personal Legend?

Those are just a sample of the thought-provoking questions that are found in the book. Do feel free to answer here or just to think about them on your own. Or maybe you’d like to post an overall opinion that you have about the book? In any case, Coelho really has given us much to consider in The Alchemist.

Discussion #1: The Alchemist

March 26, 2008

The time has come, readers! Time for our discussion about the first segment of the 6th Chicken Lit Bookclub selection, The Alchemist. Although this book is short, the wise and profound meaning remains within. Such a simple yet complex fable is unfolding before us… what will happen next?

Now it’s your turn. What has been going through your mind as you read/hear Coelho’s tale? Any ideas you want to delve into further? Do you even like the book so far? The Chicken Lit’ers want to know.

Hello world!

March 14, 2008

Welcome to the official, brand spankin’ new, Chicken Lit Bookclub site. After a few growing pains in getting this bookclub headed in the right direction, we’ve finally found a place where we can call home. Yet as with any kind of move, unpacking and tidying up is in order. So please be patient and give the bookclub organizer a little bit of time in getting settled.

She’s antsy to get started, but a bit of a perfectionist.

Oh, and while you’re here, post a comment and make your visit known! (And listen to our theme song for fun.)
