Last year I read an article about Emma Watson's feminist book club called Our Shared Shelf. As I followed, I kept thinking about how much the tea world would benefit from something like that. The idea escaped me for a while but then one night I couldn't sleep and it popped back into my head. I tweeted about it and was surprised to find that lots of people expressed interest in participating.
It took some time to get everything rolling but I am happy to announce the start of Reading Tea Leaves. This is my first time running a book club but Good Reads seemed like the easiest platform to make it happen. I couldn't think of a better first book than James Norwood Pratt's The Ultimate Tea Lover's Treasury.
It's the time of year for new year's resolutions. Why not start off on the right foot but diving into a year full of tea filled reads? I'll be adding old favorites as well as selections that are new to me. This book club is meant to be a collaborative, community effort. Please consider joining, participating and commenting. I'll also be looking for moderators to help out with keeping things running smoothly.
