Love the idea of a book club but always fall behind on the reading? What if instead of trying to cram through a whole book you got to extract the relevant parts AND how to apply them to your life? Wouldn’t that make more sense?

via GIPHY

That’s what we do in The Maker Muse Podcast Book Club! We pick a book and apply the lessons without getting lost in the weeds.

It’s a life hack.

Let’s call it the “take the fish but leave the bones” approach to book clubbing.

Plus, membership is free and you can join at anytime.

How it works

This is a virtual book club, meaning we’ll meet weekly on Zoom, discussing the themes of 1-2 chapters a week. Meetings will be on Saturday mornings PT.

Perfect time for mimosas or a coffee break!

To get access to the Zoom room, sign up with your email below and you’ll receive the login information.
