August Goodreads Book Group: Celebrity Memoirs

BossypantsHave you been meaning to join a book group, but can never find the time to make it to meetings? Are you an avid social media user as well as an avid reader? Do you just want to read some good books and discuss them with others?

Join our online book discussion group on Goodreads!

Goodreads is an online community of over 7 million readers. On the site, people share, rate, review, tag, recommend and organize their books. Goodreads also allows users to form groups. Each group has a virtual bookshelf for listing books of interest to the group and a space for forum-style discussions. As part of our group, we'll host monthly book discussions. Each month we’ll announce the theme (i.e. mystery, short stories, celebrity memoir) and then you choose the book you want to read and discuss.

For August, we'll be reading and discussing celebrity memoirs. The suggestions I’ve made below and on our Celeb Memoir bookshelf focus on the lifestyles of the rich and famous to help you indulge in some summer escapism. You’re welcome to read any memoir that interests you, though.
