We all know Emma Watson LOVES reading. She even has a team of people working to hide books around the world for readers to find! How can we not love this beautiful reader who loves to share the joy of reading with others? Want to know something more exciting?
Emma Watson started her own Goodreads bookclub named ‘Our Shared Shelf‘ as part of her work with the UN Women for Equality. She shares a book every month along with her thoughts and the topics of discussion in relation to the book. In her own words, she explains why she started her book club:
“I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I’ve been discovering so much that, at times, I’ve felt like my head was about to explode… I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I’m learning and hear your thoughts too.”
Want to join her book club now? All you have to do is create an account on the Goodreads site and sign up to the book club group called Our Shared Shelf to keep tabs on what she is currently reading. The book club is an ever growing community and currently has 216,178 members. All the books she suggests are not only interesting but make readers re-evaluate, understand and discuss topics in relation to equality. What are you waiting for? Sign up now!!
