Hello Catch This Mama readers. I am so excited for you to join me as we dive into books each month that will move us closer to owning our mom life. If you are like me, we don't take a lot of time for ourselves. Because of this, we fail to continue to grow and learn as individuals. This bookclub will help keep us accountable in making time for ourselves while simultaneously growing our intellect. We will cover 6 books a year. So, it is completely do-able to read 1/2 a book each month! We will be reading a few bonus books throughout the year as our time allows and will give notice when we plan to launch those extra goodies! BUT, THERE IS MORE!
If you are like me, you yearn to read but undoubtedly something comes up and you don't always get the time you needed to read the book. Well, no problem. At the end of each month we will have a forum as well as an MP3 podcast episode delivered to your email summarizing the book's biggest points. It's like Cliff Notes on steroids. :)

What do I get with this book club? - Each month you will get 1 MP3 recorded episode, summarizing the books main points. You will also receive a newsletter with discussion questions and information each month.

When will all the goods be sent out? On the first day of the month, an email will go out with all of the discussion questions for the 1/2 of the book we are addressing. On the last day/evening of every month a newsletter will be distributed, recapping the book and giving you a time for when we will be chatting it up on a forum in our bookclub closed group. You will also receive the recorded MP3, summarized book points and episode discussion at the end of each month.
What If I am I not interested in reading the book that is chosen for this month? Or, what if I've read this book already? I encourage you to give it a try anyways. If you read the book, I encourage you to go back through and work out the discussion questions. Reading items you may not have otherwise chosen, could open your eyes to a new perspective. With that, there will not be any refunds given if you choose to not read that book. You can hop on the next month's reading list or join in on a bonus book for the year.
