  • Good morning, Hank.

  • It's Tuesday.

  • Your book debuted at number one on The New York Times best seller list.

  • Hank, this whole experience has been so joyful.

  • It is so much better toe.

  • Have your brother publish a book than to publish one yourself.

  • But maybe my favorite part has been watching people read and discuss the book together in the fans of an absolutely remarkable thing.

  • Discord Channel.

  • It's reminded me how fun it can be to read a book with people like Reading is usually a solitary and private experience, but when you're done with the book, it could be so fulfilling to talk about it with people slightly off topic.

  • But when Sarah and I first met, we were discussing that, and we decided to start a two person book club, which we did for like three months before we started dating.

  • Possibly history's most egregious example of two people failing to notice they were in love with each other anyway, lately have been missing not only the feeling of reading a book with a lot of people but also the experience of a slightly less open Maur, community oriented Internet where we do and make stuff together not to be overly dramatic.

  • But lately a lot of my time online feels like I'm, you know, shouting my despair into an infinite void which you know is nice in its way, but not necessarily what I want to do all the time.

  • All of this has melded together into an idea that Rosiana house Ross and I have developed with our friends at Dft be a dot com called Lights Library.

  • The idea is that every six weeks for one year, a group of people will read a book together not a brand new book, but one that's a least a year old.

  • And then together we will discuss it in a discord channel, which is like a chat room, except better in every way.

  • The books will be chosen alternately by Rosiana and I, and if you sign up for the Physical Life's library, you will get a copy of the book mailed to you along with lots of other stuff, like a letter for me book plates designed by artists.

  • We love postcards, other surprises.

  • You also get digital stuff, including a podcast Rosiana and I make about the book as well as a discussion guide, and there will be Q and A's with the author's.

  • Unless they're unavailable and or dead.

  • I guess everyone who's dead is unavailable.

  • Well, maybe not.

  • Maybe we can do a say on Q and A with the dead authors.

  • I don't know.

  • We'll figure it out together.

  • Alternately.

  • You can sign up for the digital subscription, in which you pick up the book at your local library or bookstore, and then you get all the other Resource is emailed to you.

  • And if you can't afford either of those options, you can still get your book at a local library and participate in the discussion at the discord.

  • As for the books, they'll range from Why Novels?

  • Two Mysteries to Memoirs.

  • We want to read broadly and celebrate lots of different kinds of books.

  • The physical subscription will be $25 per book, which includes free shipping, both domestically and internationally.

  • The digital subscription will be $10 per book.

  • In a related story, shipping is expensive, and all the profits from Life's library will go to partners in health and organization we've worked with for over a decade that is dedicated to providing health care access for the poor are first book.

  • If we can pull this off, we'll be Jacqueline Woodson's If You Come Softly, which was published 20 years ago but still feels blisteringly contemporary.

  • Woodson is one of my favorite writers, and if you come softly is one of my favorite books, and I am so excited about the thought of getting to read it closely with lots of you.

  • So yeah, one more thing will only be able to do this if enough people signed up so we can't, like, promise that it's gonna happen.

  • But if you're interested in life's library, please go Life's library book club dot com to sign up, to be notified when the book club launches.

  • And if enough people sign up in the next week or two, we will launch and your copies of If you Come Softly will arrive by Christmas.

  • Which reminds me that Life's library would make a great gift for your family and friends.

  • Okay, I think that's it.

  • I hope you like the idea of Life's library.

  • I'll be in comments to answer any of your questions.

Good morning, Hank.
