The Morning After the Night Before

Good morning dears,
Well, I spent most of last night editing the Online Broadcast and it is now ready for you to watch below.

Thank you to Amy who came to the event and to Stacey who tried throughout the whole event to join us, I hope you can join us next time :)

Thank you also to those of you who tuned in through the broadcast, I apologize for the mess with sound in the beginning, but hey, it was the first event, things can only get better from here on in right?

The winner title from the voting has been announced....
The first book we will be reading is:

book club life of pi

I am really happy with this choice and can't wait to get reading this evening.

The next 3 books have also been chosen for the rest of 2013 - 
They are in order:

The next Online Hangout Event will take place on

 20th September at 9:00pm CEST (3:00pm EDT)
in the Google Hangout

It will again be broadcast here on the blog or on my Youtube Channel for those of you who can't make it to the event but would like to take part passively.

To keep updated and receive extra information pertaining to challenges and other topics relating to the Book-club you can sign up to the mailing list HERE
(you will receive an email each month telling you about that month's event)

I hope to see you at the next event, it is a great way to promote your blog or yourself :)

Seats are limited to 10 people and it is a first come first serve, so get there early to be sure you have a spot. The event opens 15 minutes before the time so that you can find your way into the hangout.

See you then.
Happy Reading!

  1. Hi Natalie! I'm from the U.S., and would LOVE to become a member of the book club! However, I am not at all familiar with "Google Hangout"?? I did just get my first computer camera, for Skype purposes, (Yes, I have an old computer, and I'm told XP will soon be a thing of the past! Oh no!)... Any info/advice about this hangout will be appreciated. I just signed up for the newsletter, so I hope this hereby establishes myself as an official member? Honestly, I just never even HEAR of any local book clubs around my way, although I admit I'm a little bit of a hermit. I don't get out as often as others might, but I'm just happiest in the comforts of home, I guess. I look forward to reading and participating with the group, and the recipe challenges sound like fun!... I'm not yet sure if I will jump in, and fall in sync with you all for The Life of Pi, but I will definitely look into purchasing the next book, The Light Between Oceans, for October. ~tina

    1. Hi Tina,
      How lovely to hear from you.
      I will be publishing a "How-To" video for the Google Hangouts this morning (Sunday) which should guide you through the steps of how to get into the next one.
      I would love it if you came to the book-club, and I will help you as best as I can to get in there :)
      Have a super Sunday.

  2. YES! Ordered two out of three.. the news must be OUT - my library is inundated with requests.. luckily not EVERYone thought to look at Overdrive!! (chuckle, chuckle - 9 out of 9 on the list sure beats the last in a line of 427!!

  3. p.s. thanks for making YESTERDAY available TODAY!!

    1. Hi Susan,
      It is my pleasure, will you be joining us next time for the event? It would be lovely to meet you!
      Have a great Sunday.

  4. Thanks for making it available for me to listen in to you and Amy. It would be such fun to have you both as online, global friends and"hang-out". I'm not much of a "techy" and I've never done this before, but I love to read and think you'll stretch my choices of books.
    I personally love the stated time as I'm usually home alone at that hour. Well, that is, unless I'm called in to fill in for someone at work, which is what happened this time.
    If I can work it at all for the suggested days, I'll do my best to figure out how to do this google hang-out stuff, but you might have to walk me through it with written instructions or whatever!
    Again, thank you and Happy Reading!

    1. Here is the link to the post explaining a little about Google+ events and how to get there :) You can find the post HERE

      I hope it helps you, let me know if there is still stuff you don't understand :)

    2. Hi Debi,
      It would be wonderful to have you join us.
      I will be posting a How-To post later today on the Google Hangouts (Sunday 18th) so do come back and see if it helps explain it to you.
      I look forward to meeting you in the future.

  5. Hello Nathalie

    I'm glad to hear that you had a good time (althought there seem to have been some minor things not working as planned). I won't be joining in. It makes me too nervous. I hate to call, I hate skype. I'd rather write and read.

    I like the title of you blog post: There is always a morning after a night before. Really, I like the thought. I tells me not to worry. :-)

    Have a nice Sunday evening and a good start into the new week. Regula

    1. Hi Regula,
      I can understand you, I too had to jump over my shadow to do the video chat and I know it will get easier with time, it is fun though :)
      You can always take part in the book club passively, you can watch the hangout live on my blog, you can take part in the discussions on the Twitter feed as well as make comments under the videos, if you would like?
      I wish you a great start to your week also.


Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a comment, I really appreciate each and every one.
I will reply to each of your comments, sometimes it does take a while to get around to all of them, but I will reply within 24 hours of you posting. :)
