We've been thinking about different approaches to our bookclub idea to make it a more time-feasible and valuable experience for everyone that is keen to be involved.
And EUREKA! we think we've done it. After a small hiatus we're re-introducing our monthly theme... but with a difference.
We've chosen a book as the central focus and we're planning various fun-loving activities around it. Think along the lines of discussing useful lessons and tips, surfacing bits of related content from around the web, plus our own book reviews and blog content, and an event or hangout—hopefully with the author themself.
We're kicking off in November with Susan Weinchenk's classic 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People (Voices That Matter, ISBN 9780321767530)—Amazon | Powell's | Hive.co.uk | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository. If you're keen to take part you can grab a copy from your favourite purveyor of books and follow along, but there's no obligation.
I started reading it last night and I confess to being hooked already.
So, who's keen?
