The New Yorker launches online book club
It turns out the New Yorker was on the same wavelength, as they launched an online book club of their own this week (after a month of “beta testing”).
The first book they’re having members read is Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. Not exactly an obscure title there, and we’re guessing the film version is going to inspire more people to pick up the book than 1,000 online reading groups could. But it makes sense to start with a really popular title, so kudos to them for this effort.
