Summer is coming to an end, and so is The Word On The Street’s Book Club discussion of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Better!
This week, book club leader Michele has a few last questions based on page 179 to the end of the book. Feel free to use these as a jumping-off point for any other thoughts or questions you may have too.
Thanks to all who’ve read along and shared their thoughts on the book!
Monica Heisey reads at the Vibrant Voices of Ontario Tent at 1:30 PM – 1:45 PM on Sunday, September 27th.
4th Section: (pg 179-231)
“S-E-X-X-X and Love” and “Our Modern World”
- Among a chapter filled with a light-hearted list of turn-ons and a quiz about flirting, Heisey discusses a fairly serious and eye-opening subject: the harassment that she, and definitely (too) many other women, face online on a constant basis due to what they write about. We’ve all heard the term “internet troll,” and ignoring them is easier said than done. How have you previously handled a volatile situation, whether in person or online?
- Facebook is constantly updating, whether we like the changes or not. I am definitely a fan of the improved privacy features from what it was many years ago, but there are certainly other things that could do with some fixing or explaining. If given the chance, what ONE thing would you ask Mark Zuckerberg/Facebook?
- Thanks to Netflix and other similar streaming programs, it now lets us spend hours – or days – watching an entire TV series. Heisey lists some of her tips on how to prepare yourself for hours of TV, but what are your own Netflix rituals? What was the last show you binge-watched, and what’s on your list to watch next?
That’s it for the book club discussion for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Better! Thank you all for stopping in to chat with me about it, and I look forward to meeting everyone at The Word On The Street on September 27!
