I love this idea for helping people get some uninterrupted reading time every week. And while I don't think it would take the place of a book club it sounds like a great addition (and would help me finish each month's book club selection). And the listed benefits of slow reading are an added bonus: increased empathy, provides pleasure, heightens concentration, enhances comprehension, enriches vocabulary and reduces stress. These days I'm finding it hard to get much reading done but since we now have both a Starbucks and a library less than two miles from home, I think I need to set aside 30-60 minutes a week to go to either one and concentrate on a book. Who knows, maybe it really will help with all the stress of moving.
I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
