Book Club: August Roll Call

When I opened my journal this morning and wrote today's date I could hardly believe I was writing August 1, 2011. But I did. And you know what that means-- new book for the Book Club. I so hope you will join us this month as we go through:

(One Thousand Gifts: A dare to live fully right where you are by Ann Voskamp)

Who can participate? Anyone who HAS or WILL read the book.  I've had a lot of people tell me, "Man, I wish I could do it but I just read it a few months ago and don't have time to re-read it." No worries. If you've already read the book, you can still join in for our challenge and discussion.

How things work? We all check in on this post. Then on the 15th I'll post a challenged. Then come back on the 28th and we will have our virtual living room discussion. Check out the Book Club page for more details on the Book Club. 

For more details on the book, read this post: "Book Club: August Book Revealed." Be sure to watch the YouTube promo video here.

OK, now for the Roll Call-- answer the following questions in the comments. Be sure to check back in and comment on other people's comments (this is what makes it more like a club and less like just reading a book).

1. Name
2. Where you live
3. How you heard about Book Club
4. Why this book struck a chord with you
5. Since it's a book on gifts, what is the best gift you've received this past year (can be totally materialistic here, don't be too serious unless it just was)? And just for fun, what is the worst gift you've ever received?

Can't wait to go through this book with you. Talk to you on the 15th!
