Bookworms! Emma Watson wants YOU to join her new book club

Emma Watson is channelling her inner Hermione with the announcement that she is launching a feminist book club on Goodreads. 

Emma revealed the plans yesterday when she tweeted to her fans asking for them to come up with a good title for the club. 

After some good and many questionable suggestions later, Emma settled on the title Our Shared Shelf

The book club is to include many thought provoking and feminist literature and the first title Emma picked is the biography of activist Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road. 

"As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too," she wrote on the official page. 

"The plan is to select and read a book every month, then discuss the work during the month's last week (to give everyone time to read it!). I will post some questions/quotes to get things started, but I would love for this to grow into an open discussion with and between you all."

"Whenever possible I hope to have the author, or another prominent voice on the subject, join the conversation. If you fancy it, please join up and participate. Everyone is welcome. I would be honoured!"

Well if you are into a good read, this sounds amazing! You can find the page here and discussion has already started.
