We'll be meeting monthly over on Clubhouse to connect and chat about our monthly book selection.
What kinds of books will we be reading? Fitness, health, wellness, nutrition, mindset, and related topics. One month might be a memoir and the next something on mindset or habits, then maybe something on lifting or nutrition. I'll try to mix it up and keep it interesting. By joining you are in no way obligated to read every book. If one of our monthly selections doesn't float your boat or you find yourself crazy busy for a bit, just skip that month! Then jump back in any time. I want this to be fluid and welcoming. I understand that not every book I pick will be everyone's cup of tea. No worries.
Any rules I need to be aware of? When I set up the club on Clubhouse it asked me if I wanted to add rules. It said "Rule #1" and of course I wanted to make a Fight Club Reference: the first rule of book club... 🤣 But really, for now I'm leaving those blank. Let's just meet and have fun and above all, be kind. I know that we may hit on some controversial topics (people can get heated over nutrition etc), but I'm confident we can all just get along! There's enough nonsense in the world, book club should be light and fun.
So, how do you join? Click here to join the club on Clubhouse. You'll have to join Clubhouse if you're not already a member. Then, get your hands on the book! Feel free to buy the physical book, listen to it on Audible, find it at your local library, or just come chat about it if we pick a book you've already read! Just a note, if you buy the book through links on FitViews I will earn a commission, which helps me pay the bills to keep FitViews up and running. I am of course grateful when you do that, but truly I just want everyone to join in regardless of how they get the book.
When do we meet? We'll be meeting (usually) the last Sunday of the month in the afternoon/evening. Dates and times to be announced monthly until we settle on a good time.
Enough already, what's our first book?
Our first book will be Dottir by Katrin Davidsdottir. This is a memoir by two-time CrossFit Games champion, Katrin Davidsdottir. It's available in hardcover, paperback, kindle, or audiobook. For more budget friendly options you can try your local library or buy a used copy.
Our October book club will meet Sunday October 24 (to avoid Halloween) at 5:00 PM Mountain Time (6:00 central, 7:00 eastern, 4:00 pacific).
We will be taking November and December off for the holidays and then resuming in January. (Much fun planned for 2022!)
