It’s Time To Play Name That Book Club!

May 30, 2013 Blogging, Book Club 57

Hola, Bookworms!

We have come to day three of Armchair BEA and I am SO EXCITED! Today’s topic is… FREE STUFF! Actually, today is the day that Armchair BEA suggested that we hold giveaways on our blogs to thank everyone for being awesome and hanging with us. Yay!

About a month ago, I asked the delightful Bookworms on the Words for Worms Facebook page (which, by the way, if you do not already “like” you can do so HERE) if they’d be interested in participating in a book club hosted by MOI. The response was OVERWHELMING. Y’all want a book club! I live to serve, so I’m pleased to announce the formation of…

Yeah. I couldn’t think of a NAME. So. I’m going to hold a CONTEST! It’s easy to enter. Just leave a comment with suggestions of names for our book club. You can enter as many times as you want- leave anything you pretty little head can come up with. Tell your friends, perhaps they’ll have ideas. I’m partial to terrible puns, cheeky literary references, and pandering to my ego.

I will choose a name from among the reader suggestions. The person who comes up with the winning name will win FABULOUS PRIZES! Should the winner be a US resident, they will receive a box of assorted goodness so glorious that I cannot list it all here (partly because I’ve yet to assemble it.) It will definitely contain a $25 gift card to Amazon, which will be supplemented by do dads and fun things (possibly even… a dingelhopper!) Should the winner be a non US resident they will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon. And that’s it. Because, you guys. SHIPPING. Seriously. Alright. I’ll also throw in a personalized limerick for any potential international winners. (My limericks are legendary. Here’s PROOF.)

I will announce the winner a week from today along with our inaugural book club selection. I hope you’re all as excited as I am! Now, pretty please? Name! That! Book Club!!!!!!

***In the event that I get multiple entries for the same name, I’ll count the earliest time stamped suggestion. I know that it’s 100% plausible that multiple people come up with the same idea independently, but I’ve got to have some rules in place, you know?

On a completely unrelated note, today is the 30th and GOLDEN birthday of my butter churning best friend from a past life, Chrissy of Quirky Chrissy. Stop by her blog today to wish her a happy birthday. I can’t tease her for being old because I already turned 30, but if you’re younger and want to give her crap? I fully support your shenanigans. Happy Birthday, Jelly Bean! XOXO!

    Web Worms Book Club
    Through the Worm Hole Book Club
    Worming through Books Web-style

      Oh, maybe the Oprah thing is trademarked? I mean, using her name. Probably!! Also, I’m not in the book club. I was just playing, so feel free to ignore. :P Have fun!

    We Actually Talk About the Books Bookclub
    Whine and Books Bookclub (b/c we’re not afraid to whine about characters we hate LOL)
    BYOB (Bring Your Own Books)
    Page Turners

    That’s all I can come up with but I am loving all of these clever suggestions! You’re going to have a tough job Katie!

  11. mgwg

    Okay I had a look at my Pinterest board for inspiration….

    The Book Drunkards
    The Librocubicularists (pinterest says this means a person who reads in bed)
    I’m With the Banned Bookclub – we could only read banned/challenged books, that might be too limiting, obviously, but it’s an idea
    Can’t, I’m Booked Bookclub
    Good Books, Good Friends Bookclub

    Okay, I’ll stop now.

  12. Sarah Says Read

    Katieeeee, you’re starting a book club?? This sounds amazing. But I have a question – is it going to be on FB only?

    Hmmm… naming ideas… this is going to be tough.

    The Book Club of Amazingness
    Katie’s Wormy Book Club
    Katie and the Worms Book Club (okay actually I really love this one)

    I also second these earlier suggestions:
    The Wormy McSmartyPants book club
    Wordy Worms book club
    The Fellowship of the Worms book club
    The Book Hook

    • Words for Worms

      I’m breaking radio silence to tell you that the currently nameless book club will take place here on the blog. There will be a giant spoiler warning at the beginning of the post and I’ll pose questions to the crowd so we can talk about the WHOLE book. You can answer them in the comments, or I suppose if I get really tech savvy I could put one of those linky things up for blogger types who can’t be contained within the bounds of traditional comments. Facebook is merely my preferred means of testing the waters :).

  13. Akilah

    I like The Fellowship of the Worms for a book club name as well.

    Or you could always go with The Words for Worms Book Club. Simple, but effective.

  14. Jessica

    hmmm…maybe The Book Stops Here. Or What The Genre, Tattered Talers, Bibliobabblers, or Bookends.

  15. Tiffany Horton

    We go so hard. We lose control.
    Cause when I read I know I go hard. ;)

  16. lostinliterature108

    “Dude, we gotta book!” Cause you know, Hurley says that when they need to run from the smoke monster but it could still totally mean, “Dude, we’ve got a new book….” each month. Plus, I like Thesaurus Shrugged, Web Worms and Fellowship of the Worms. But I would love to scroll through my news feed each month and see “Dude, we gotta book…”

  18. Jenny

    Hahah, okay, I was going to try to think of a name, but everyone else has come up with so many amazing names that I am just going to slow-clap over here.

    (Also, I googled “worm” and a strangely adorable graphic came up. Not a real picture of a worm. It was a cartoon worm. Don’t infantilize us, Google! We can handle an image of a real worm!)

    • Words for Worms

      Kudos on the slow clap- so many awesome names to choose from! And you had me busting a gut over google and their worm cartoons. They have it in for us, you know!

  19. BookAttict

    Worm Food.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
    elizabeth @ bookattict . com

  20. Diamond Nazaneen

    We Breathe Books! Hmm…maybe that would be too redundant saying we breathe books book club?
    Ok so here’s another – In the Company of Books – ah I did it again! It seems it’s hard for me go choose a name that doesn’t end in “books”!
    :p good luck!

  21. Samantha

    The Penguin Book Lovers’ Club (although that could allude to the Penguin Books press)
    Pageturners Anonymous
    Hungry Worms Book Club
    Don’t Bother Them for 10 more Pages Club
    Book Hangover Recovery Club

    I think that’s all I’ve got. Nice giveaway! :D
