In Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice asks “And what is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations?” Over the years, we’ve come to find out there’s a lot of use in books, regardless of whether they consist of pictures or not. While teatimelit is only two months old, we’ve found a lot of joy in writing formal blog posts with recommendations and thoughts of our own, as well as making friends in the book blogging community and other bookish communities.
In our earliest group chat days, the three of us would each take turns picking and choosing a book for the group to read and discuss each month. It’s always been a lovely thing, messaging each other our thoughts over a nice cup of tea. Through that book club, we’ve gotten to read books that we wouldn’t have heard about or read on our own, including books that have come to mean a lot to us. In reflecting on our bookish adventures, we decided to revamp our love for our book club, and expand it to be an official thing!
We’re very happy to announce that we’ve decided to create a book club for teatimelit named teatimereads, where we’ll select a diverse read to read each month & discuss it together! We’re incredibly excited for our new adventure, and to see what all the tea party attendees will choose for our first book! If you’d like to join us down the rabbit hole, just click on this link!
