Introducing The Vintage Book Group

January 15, 2013

Vintage Book Group copy

Recently I’ve combined my love of vintage with my love of books. So many great books have been recommended to me which have vintage themes and I keep discovering more. Me and Fay from the wonderful book blog Blog a Book Etc have decided to join forces to form The Vintage Book Group. The group is based on Goodreads so you don’t need to be a blogger to take part.

How it works…

Every two weeks Fay and I will recommend a vintage themed book for the group to read. We are allowing two weeks to get the book read and then we will share our thoughts on the books on the discussions on the Goodreads page.

The group is just for fun and members don’t have to read every book on the list, although they are all fabulous!

Anyone can join! It’s not just for bloggy people all you have to do is sign up to Goodreads and join the group. The books are all readily available in paper form, kindle, and some on audio.

The books aren’t just for vintage girls! We have chosen books that appeal to a wide female audience but just happen to include some lovely vintage fashion 🙂

We love recommendations so please let us know if there’s something you’d like the group to read.

How to join…

You can join here. If you already have Goodreads joining is simple, if not you can sign up for Goodreads before joining.

If you are a blogger is would be much appreciated if you could spread the world by doing a little post on your blog to announce the book group and link up in the comments below and on Fay’s blog. Please feel free to copy the logo at the top of the page.

The first few books on the list are…

Miracle on Regent Street by Ali Harris (reading from Jan 20th – 2nd Feb)

The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean (reading from 3rd feb – 16th Feb)

The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene (reading from 17th Feb – 2nd march)

    I love vintage stuff, but I think I read less vintage books (shame on me).
    It’s gonna be fun. I’ll join the next batch. Count me in. Thanks for hosting this great group read.

    I love this! I read The Secret Lives of Dresses last year and really enjoyed it! Did you know she has a Dress A Day blog that inspired her to write the story? I love the idea of how dresses have unique ‘historys.’
