For the first time ever, I’ve been invited to join a book club through Zoom while they discuss The Body in the Attic. I’m thrilled to be invited. It doesn’t take place until Nov. 3, so I have time to learn how Zoom works.
I’ve never had to Zoom before. I’ve done an hour long chat Q&A on Kensington’s Between the Chapters Book Club. That was fun! I got so many good questions and discussions. I’m thinking this will be a great two hours, too. At conferences, I really enjoy talking to readers. Most of them are more well-read than I am and know a slew of authors and their work. It’s a learning experience listening to them, especially what they like and what they don’t.
I was going to buy a new laptop. Mine died, and I hardly ever used it–so never replaced it–but my grandson sent me info about a camera and mic that plug into my desktop. Lots cheaper and more practical for me. I’m going to try to set it up and then use it enough to feel comfortable with it.
I don’t always resist change, but I’ve dragged my feet on Zoom. This invitation was good motivation for me to catch up with the rest of the world. Wish me luck!
