Hello dear readers,
The BWB team has a couple of new ideas that we are planning to put in action…Front Cover Fridays, starting tomorrow and Reader’s Choice, starting next month. Here’s the tidbit on what these plans are all about…
Front Cover Fridays – A day of every week dedicated to appreciating the creative work that goes into designing a book cover. Not our original initiative…BM brought it to the group’s attention after seeing this being implemented on other blogs and we agreed to take this up going on forward on this blog. The basic idea behind this is to find a book cover which has a design that we are attracted to, do a post on why we like the cover, how we think the cover relates to the storyline, whether or not the cover-storyline relationship makes sense, if or not the story sounds interesting enough to be added to our wish-list. Sounds good?
If any one of you has any suggestion, a book cover that interested you in some way, please do write to us. You can do a guest post on a Friday, in case you are interested in this topic or just give us an input as to whatever cover you discover so that we can go ahead and write what we think. We would love to hear from you…so please do write.
Reader’s Choice – A day or two towards the end of each month dedicated to discussing a particular book. Kind of like an online book club theme. Towards the end of the month we will give a list of a few books out of which you will be asked to vote for one. The book that is chosen will be the Reader’s Choice book of the following month…when we all read that book and come back towards the end of the month to have a discussion on our likes and dislikes. This will be more interactive than the book reviews (we hope) and will give us all a chance to discuss something that we all have read. You like?
So, for the next month’s Reader’s Choice, please give us some input on what books are on your wish-list for Feb. We will take your suggestions and our own, come up with a list and open the final selection process sometime next week. We want to take in your input…so please do suggest a title or two.
