A Book Group of Sorts


My dog-eared, underlined copy of Playing Big.

In the New Year, I am hosting a Book Group of sorts. I emphasize “of sorts” because Book Groups, like most things that sound really great around the New Year, oftentimes transmutate into sources of guilt/shame/frustration/self-loathing, and we certainly don’t need any more of that in our lives.

So in the New Year, I am hosting a Book Group of sorts where you can follow along at your own pace. My only request is that you let it be easy. Simple. Without expectation. Kinda like hosting a dinner party and serving take-out on paper plates.

We’ll be reading Playing Big by Tara Mohr. I’ve recommended it to many of my dearest friends, and they have all found comfort and practical wisdom within its pages. These women range from stay-at-home mothers to executive-level leaders, so I think you, too, will find it relatable and inspiring.

The book will be broken into four sections, so you only have to read a couple of chapters at a time. This is not a one-and-done kinda book, so we’ll read it over a period of two months. Doing the math here, that’s a post every two weeks from me, give or take. (Like I said, dinner party on paper plates.)

Here’s how to get started:

  • Visit the AKO Collective Facebook page and like the Book Group announcement that’s pinned to the top. From there, I’ll invite you to a private group so you can read, comment, and give out smiley faces.
  • Order Playing Big by Tara Mohr. Amazon has the best prices, and it’s not always available in local stores.
  • On January 15 (or as soon as the book arrives), start reading, with the let-it-be-easy intention of getting through the introduction and first two chapters. I will post some thoughts to the private group at the beginning of February, along with the next let-it-be-easy intention.

I hope the four-week lead time is enough notice for this Book Group of sorts.

See you on the Facebook.
