She Reads, of course!

Proverbs 31 Ministries, a fabulous organization, has a new book club called She Reads, which launched in September with three new featured books, one of which is The Shape of Mercy.

I wrote a devotional for the main Proverbs 31 site that you can read right here. My publisher is giving away ten copies and one grand winner will receive a beautiful leather bound journal and fountain pen, ala Mercy’s diary. You can enter the drawing on the Proverbs 31 site today – the link takes you right to the She Reads blog.

Want to know more about She Reads? Sure you do! My good friend Marybeth Whalen is one of the key organizers of She Reads and she wrote a great blog post about it last week, which I have excerpted here:

So how does She Reads work?

Marybeth: Our goal for She Reads is for it to function in two ways: 1) as a place an individual can go get recommendations for great books to read and to connect with the authors who wrote them and other readers who enjoyed them and 2) as a place where book clubs that are already out there can get connected with an umbrella organization that provides suggestions for books, activities they can do, discussion questions, and a point of contact with the author. We are working towards accomplishing these goals and are learning and tweaking as we go.

That sounds great, so how can I get connected?

Marybeth: Right now, the best way to get connected is to sign up for our seasonal newsletter and to subscribe to our blog, which is updated several times a week. You can also become a fan on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter. That way, as we make changes and create new facets to She Reads, you will know about it. To visit our site and learn more, go to There is a navigation bar at the top which will take you to different parts of the site.

What books have you selected so far?

Marybeth: We select 3 books a season. Our fall selections are Daisy Chain by Mary DeMuth, The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner, and eye of the god by Ariel Allison. These three different books all meet the criteria we created at the outset. Because this club is not set up by any one publisher we have the freedom to go to any Christian publisher to find our selections… and we do. We are reading, reading, reading right now to find our spring and summer selections. We have already chosen our winter ones but I can’t tell you what those are yet! We will be making our announcement towards the beginning of December but I can promise you you are in for a treat with these books!

Do check the devo out!
