ADVANCE Perspective: Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine

Would You Join an Online Book Club?

Published August 21, 2008 10:35 AM by Lauren Fritsky

Do you like to unwind at the end of the day with a good book?  Would you be interested in sharing your thoughts about a novel’s plot and themes with other avid readers?

ADVANCE for PTs is considering starting an online book club on our site. A new book would be chosen every couple of months to give ample time to read and discuss. We’d post some questions to get the discussion going. We’d even have author Q&As or video interviews when applicable.

To check out the format, visit the site of one of our sister publications, ADVANCE for Nurses, and let us know if you’re interested.




Hello everyone--

I was told that we are going to hold off on this for a few more weeks as we roll out some more Website changes. I will update you with more news then. Thank you so much for your interest.

I'd love to participate. %0d%0a%0d%0a Will we be notified by email?  Or do we need to check into a website or blog to keep updated?%0d%0a%0d%0aBTW, I think the first book suggestion for the Nursing section would also be a great one for us to start with.  What do you think?

Hello Kim and Cheryl--

We were thinking of starting off with books with some sort of physical therapy or rehab tie. But once this gets going, you will be the ones suggesting books, so the sky's the limit really. Thanks for letting us know you are interested!

I would definitely be interested in joining your book club!  And I think everyone I work with would be into it too.  What kind of books were you thinking of including?  Thank you for starting something like this for PTs!
