first time ever: a burnt toast book club

Last week I posted a photo on instagram of the book my women's group is about to start, and I had loads of people comment about it.

Apparently, a gajillion of my friends have been dying to read this bookI began to invite all of them to my women's group- even if they didn't live in Austin, which seems to be a bit of a barrier. (I'm trying really hard not to be offended by everyone's lack of commitment to weekly plane commutes to Austin.)

Then I realized, we can all read it together right here on my blog. After all, we're grown-ups, and we get to do what we want (sort of- except for avoiding unpleasant responsibility.)

There is nothing more fun than our book discussions on Tuesday nights. It gets us all reading, thinking, and eventually growing (straight-up glory stuff, for realz yo). I highly recommend it. It's super fun, too.

Also, Mr. Fantastic read through the beginning of the book last week and he loved it. It's not a girly book, so any guys who want to join us, I promise you won't be sorry. So. Good.

Here's how it will work:

Every week on Wednesday, I will post a brief summary of the section we have read, highlighting some of my favorite excerpts. I will also share the discussion questions that my face-to-face women's group hashed out the night before,. The comment section will be open and you can share your favorite/least favorite parts, deep thoughts, and so forth.

So, if you're interested in reading Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker, a book about the gospel revolutionizing your way of life in new ways, click on the image below and and order yourself a copy. Read it while you nurse the baby, sit in the pick-up line, spin your legs on the elliptical, or sit in your backyard watching dogs and kids play in the sprinklers.

Next Wednesday, we will chat up pages 13-43. I can't wait!
