Ok folks. Let’s get this awesome book club underway. Many people on Twitter, and IG, have been hitting me up for awhile, asking me to start a book club, or just asking me for book recommendations. I’m going to offer up these two choices (see above) and let folks who want to be down with the book club, decide which to start reading.
I’ll post a few questions in the next post, depending on which book we unanimously (or as close to that) choose, to kind of get us all started with a “dialogue”. People can then simply leave comments/questions in the comment section of the post. After that point, I’ll decide if we jump to a periodic Skype group chat, or a Gmail conversation between us all, etc.
“Manuscript Found in Accra is a novel by Paulo Coelho. The action is placed in 1099 in Jerusalem while the city awaits the invasion of the crusaders. Inside the city’s walls, men and women gathered to hear the wise words of a mysterious greek man– known as the Copt. The people begin with questions about their fears, true enemies, defeat and struggle.”
“The Bhagavad Gita (Sanskrit: श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता, Śrīmadbhagavadgītā) is a 700-verse scripture that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. It is a sacred text of the Hindus.
The Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide Lord Krishna. Facing the duty to kill his relatives, Arjuna is “exhorted by his charioteer, Kṛiṣhṇa, among others, to stop hesitating and fulfill his Kṣatriya (warrior) duty as a warrior and kill.”
