Why are you posting book reviews?
During a recent gathering, a friend of mine asked me “why are you posting book reviews on your blog“?
Since he asked, I thought others might also want to know.
There are a couple of reasons why I’m sharing my book reviews:
- To initiate discussion. As in every day conversations, having similar reading interests is great way to start a discussion – “I noticed your also read … How did you find it?“
- To capture and document the central themes of the books. A few of us are working on a collaborative project – writing a book – and through our research and reading we want to keep track of central themes we are covering. The book summaries are used as anchors in this preliminary phase of our project.
If you are interested in joining our collaborative effort, drop me a line.
