2nd & Charles Presents Literarily Wasted, a Free, Online Reading Club

May 28, 2019

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2019--

Avid and casual readers are invited to join Literarily Wasted, an all-new, FREE online book club, presented by 2nd & Charles. Members are encouraged to grab the featured book of the month – possibly their favorite drink too – and connect for live bi-monthly conversations about the plot, characters and more! Literarily Wasted participants will weigh in on the featured titles and have the chance to explore a variety of options not usually featured in book clubs – including June’s book of the month, “Good Omens” by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

“This cutting-edge concept takes the traditional book club to the next level,” said Eric Bishop, Sr. Vice President for 2nd & Charles. “Our goal is to influence and encourage more reading, and Literarily Wasted will bring together a geek-centric community where members can discuss and enjoy from the comfort of their homes or wherever they are!”

To join, participants should follow 2nd & Charles and Literarily Wasted on Facebook, YouTube or Instagram and follow along with the live stream discussions every other Wednesday of the month. Members can receive 20% off the book of the month by purchasing it from 2nd & Charles and mentioning the new book club!

Literarily Wasted is created and hosted by real-life couples, Christy & Adam Schwartz and Talia Lin & Lucas Pepke. “This innovative book club will focus primarily on sci-fi, fantasy and other geek-centric genres,” said Christy Schwartz, who always has at least three books going at one time. “These categories are often overlooked by other book clubs, making it difficult to find a community to discuss these stories. 2nd & Charles is the perfect partner to help us bring this to life!”
