Literati Book Club Review & Giveaway

As female entrepreneurs, finding time to read in our busy schedules, or finding the time to pick a new book, can be challenging. We are focused on running our business, managing commitments, and making time for family, so it can be hard to find something easy to unwind.  

To escape life’s distractions and come up with new creative ideas for my own business, I love to read a new book. If I am at my office in the city, I escape to the waterfront to read, or if I am at home, you will find me curled up with a book and my dog in the backyard. 

When I am finished reading a new book, I love to share it with my friends, family, and fellow female entrepreneurs – a good book is a great conversation piece! That is what I love most about Literati, the book club that makes reading and sharing convenient. Literati curates the best books from people you admire, delivers them straight to you in the mail, and hosts monthly book clubs for every type of reader. Literati truly makes reading something new and feeling inspired easy for members. 

How Does Literati Work?

Each month, you will receive a book chosen by industry leaders, artists, and authors. They call them Luminaries. There are currently 12 Luminaries to choose from, and I personally joined Susan Orlean’s Private Collection book club. 

Susan is a writer of true stories and bestselling books whose bylines have graced the pages of The New Yorker, Vogue, Rolling Stone, and more. The Private Collection book club showcases an array of books from Orlean’s personal library. She explores heartfelt stories about identity, historical fiction, and creative nonfiction—with other book club members. When you join her club, you can expect to read exquisite writing and unforgettable narratives that you will not want to put down – like her pick for June’s book club, Luster a novel. 

The Literati App

Each Luminary leads a book club centered around genres, themes, or causes they care deeply about. With your subscription, you can access them all, decide which club you will join, and even switch club’s month to month—all in the Literati App.

If you are the type of person that wants to discuss the book with others while you are reading like me, then you will love the Literati Experience. Inside the app, you can discuss books with other readers—and your Luminary. (Yes, Malala is really in the app.)

One of the best features of Literati’s book clubs is that the books are curated by real people, and the Luminaries really highlight the authors and the artists behind each story. So not only are you reading the book, but you get to go even deeper behind-the-scenes and learn why the story was created. 

Why Join Literati’s Book Club?

As busy professionals, I believe that joining a book club will give you a dedicated reason to read regularly, and help you create new habits. When you join something long-term, you will also build new relationships, and connect with other members who all offer a different perspective on the book. 

Before I was introduced to Literati, I chose books to read based on my personal interests. What I did not realize was that this approach to reading was a disservice to myself. Joining a curated book club experience, where the book is selected for me, is opening me up to new genres and styles. 

Finally if you are writing a book yourself, like me, then being part of a book club will expose you to what readers enjoy. You can then use this information to improve your own writing!
