Welcome to day fourteen of The Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway!
Today’s giveaway? Book by Book: The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs by Cindy Hudson (Seal Press 2009).
Mothers and daughters share a special bond. . . why not further this bond through reading together? Book clubs have been growing in popularity over the past ten years, started by a variety of people with various interests and goals. Mother-daughter book clubs offer a great way for families to grow and share — with each other and with other mother-daughter pairs. In Book by Book: The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs Cindy Hudson offers all the how-to tips mothers need to start their own successful book clubs. Hudson offers her own firsthand experience as the founder of two long-running successful mother-daughter book clubs.
Hudson offers suggestions on books topics, club guidelines, and how to keep the club going as daughters grow older. How big should the club be? Whom should we invite? How often should we meet? How do we make sure we actually read the books? Hudson has all the answers. With recommended book lists (divided by four age groups), online resources, and suggested recipes for book-club treats, Book by Book is a great resource for helping moms and daughters form new memories and traditions.
Cindy Hudson is a mother-daughter book club consultant, journalist, writer, and editor. She has more than twenty years experience as a marketing and public relations professional, and has founded two mother-daughter book clubs of her own.

Today’s question is…
Cindy is a great example of a mom who turned a topic she is passionate about—Mother-daughter Book Clubs—into a specialty and then a book. I bet you have many passions. I bet you’ve had hundreds over the years. So for today’s question, please make a list of all of the things you are currently passionate about. And if that list isn’t long enough, go back in time and include all the things you’ve ever been passionate about. Have fun! [And please don’t forget to participate in the Amazon spike for Cindy’s book tomorrow, September 15th! We’ll talk about the other Amazon spike book, Kristin Bair O’Keeffe’s, Thirsty, tomorrow.]
Give me the goods in 50-200 words, please. 🙂
