Welcome to The Book Club!
Sun 5 Jul 09
The Book Club is a blog for Travellerspoint members who share a passion for books. Was the last book you read a gem, or was it a complete dud? Tell us about it! Any Travellerspoint member can contribute to The Book Club.
For years, one of the most popular threads in our forum has been this one, an ongoing discussion about the latest books Travellerspoint members have read. With this blog, we're taking the whole book reviewing thing to the next level.
The Book Club is set up as a project of the Travellerspoint Foundation. All income generated through this blog will go towards the Foundation, which sponsors awesome projects around the world. Our first initiative through the Foundation was to create a Travellerspoint lending team on Kiva, a wonderful organization that allows individuals and groups to make small loans to entrepreneurs in the developing world.
To become a book reviewer, send a message to Gretchen, Peter or me with a sample book review. If you're accepted, you will be given book reviewer status, allowing you to log into our blog area and write reviews.
The books don't necessarily have to be travel-related, so don't let that put you off. As with our forums, please keep blog posts clean, so no vulgarity or crassness. Oh, and any explicitly adult books are off-limit.
