Pandora Sister’s Book Club

Pandora Sister’s Book Club

Make friends and turn over a new page with the Pandora Sister’s Book Club!

Pandora Sister’s Book Club

With much of the world on lockdown and some of us with a bit more time on our hands, it’s good to turn to something comforting and familiar: reading a good book!

During this time of a global pandemic it is important to keep positive and not panic. Books and stories are can be a wonderful escape from reality and are can help provide good mental health. Thus I decided to start a book club as an opportunity for Pandora sisters to meet together, chat and have some fun.

The Pandora Sister’s Book Club will read one book and discuss it together at the end of the month. Members can choose to read from either a paper or digital book. I myself prefer the convenience of ebooks and they are also a good option for those who cannot visit a bookshop.

The Curious Charm’s of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick

The first read of The Pandora Sister’s Book Club is the fantastic book ‘The Curious Charm’s of Arthur Pepper’ by Phaedra Patrick.

Although I have read The Curious Charm’s of Arthur Pepper once before it is the perfect book to start The Pandora Sister’s Book Club! Also we may have a surprise coming from its author, Phaedra Patrick. 

One aspect of The Pandora Sister’s Book Club is to ensure as many people as possible are able to read each months book. So I will help and pay-it-forward to some of you lovely readers by sending you a copy. If you would like to send a copy to someone then read below how to pay-it-forward.

Likely there will be some challenges and limitations to this endeavour as Pandora Sisters live all over the world. However I will aim to get the book to a number of people through Apple or Amazon.

How Can I joint Pandora Sister’s Book Club?
1. Leave a comment below on why you love reading.
2. Type your preference for the book (ie, Apple, Kindle etc).
3. Write your country location.

Can I just download the book and read it?

Sure, maybe you have a kindle account and it comes with the subscription. Just write a sentence about why you love reading.

How Can I Pay-It-Forward?
1. Reply to someone that you are able to send a copy of the book.
2. I will contact you both (so please use real email addresses)
3. Please think about physical location and digital paywalls when doing this.

How will we discuss the book?

This will depends on the participation in the book club and whereabouts the members are located. However there should be a small window of time during the day when we can all manage to go online for an hours chat.

When will we discuss ‘The Curious Charm’s of Arthur Pepper’?
The Pandora Sister’s Book Club will discuss the first book ‘The Curious Charm’s of Arthur Pepper‘ on Sunday 26th April 2020 at 2.00pm GMT.

I am really excited about The Pandora Sister’s Book Club and look forward to hearing from you below 🙂

There seems to be a bit in confusion about the Pay It Forward aspect. There is a explanation of the concept here on Wikipedia. One thing you will notice is that it is not an “I buy for you — you buy for me” trade as we may as well buy for ourselves. If you receive the book as a gift from someone you can pay it forward to a third party beneficiary. One example would be reaching a toll road to find that the person ahead has paid for you to pass, so you decide to pay for the… Read more »

Buona sera mi chiamo Anna e vi scrivo dall’Italia bellissima iniziativa però vorrei sapere perchè qui in Italia molte cose e gadget come vedo in molti gruppi non arrivano? Forse noi non paghiamo come pagano gli altri? unamused Non credo. Io sono una vostra fan e vi seguo sui siti nel mondo. Ho anche telefonato alla vostra assistenza lasciando il mio numero di cellulare sperando di essere ricontattata. Comunque sono felice di questa bella iniziativa. Grazie…amo Pandora! arrow

This is such a wonderful idea, especially now with everything that’s going on! I’ve loved reading since I was a little girl. It provides great way to escape. I’ve got a big collection of books at home but started to run out of room, so I switched to reading on my iPad with the Kindle app a few years ago. I’m from the US. smile

I always wanted to join a book club and this is the 2nd one I’ll be a part of this year! I love how reading distracts your mind and makes you feeling like a silent witness of someone’s story. I’ve already downloaded the book and will start reading soon. Best wishes from

This is such a wonderful idea. I love to read. Reading can be an escape from everyday life and it’s available pretty much anytime. I love reading books that other people suggest. It’s a way to get out of my own comfort zone and learn more about others.

Hi Emily,

I have been inspired by Phaedra’s kind gift to Kasia and would like to pay it forward to someone else in the UK. Let me know if you prefer kindle/apple or would like a paperback in the mail.

Please feel free to pass on the love to someone else on the list.

Why I like reading books 📚?
Many reasons really.
Books take you to another world and depends of my mood I can be either Anastasia Steel from 50 shades of grey or Myron Bolita from Coben’s book. On other days I will laugh reading Bossypants or cry reading Flowers in the Attic.
Im the old fashion and I like to feel the book in my hands 🙈
It will be nice to get the copy of the book and join the club 😉

If you’d like a copy, please let me have your address. You can message me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to keep your details private if you like. Best wishes, Phaedra

Oh yay! I’m excited about this Pandora Sisters Book Club! I love sitting on my front porch to read, it’s my quiet alone time! Brings back memories of my great-grandmother who taught me to read at a very young age (before kindergarten). I’m in Florida USA and I have an android but also read real books, either one is fine with me. I’m not picky!

Hi. I was so happy to hear about the book club. I’m so excited to share my love for reading with my Pandora sisters. Though I use my Kindle, I still prefer books. I recently went to an old bookstore who sells used books and got some good ones plus the owner gave me some old school bookmarks. It was so cool! I hope you can send me a copy of the book here in California. 💛🍀

Oh I loooove reading but recently due to a tonne of uni work and my part time job, I didn’t get time to read, it’s gonna change now though because of the quarantine. Well, reading. Why do I love it? Is there any other way of learning about stories from all over the world? Is there any other way of combining my imaginatory world with someone else’s? I love how books teach us new things but we don’t even realise it because of the amazing stories they describe. As a child, reading was a challenge to me, I had troubles… Read more »

I love reading when I was kid but for whatever reason it is, I stopped for such a long long time and I think Dora has came out brilliant idea and I should join and bring myself back into reading.

I don’t have experience in both apple or Kindle so I would prepare paper or soft copy. Sorry I still do not really know how this reading work yet. Appreciate for further advice

Hi Dora,

I love reading a good old paperback book. Reading can transport you to another time, almost like time traveling! Reading can allow you to experience new situations or emotions and give you new perspective. It is a way to gain wisdom and experience from the safety of home.

The reason I love books is because they offer you the ability to experience a world separate from reality. Books can make you laugh, cry, question and fall in love. They’re the the most magical thing in the planet! 💕
