In the past, we have had a sporadic book club here at The Hollow. We would pick a book, dye yarn to go with it, and put together book boxes with fun extras. Finally, we might discuss the book either on the podcast or as a separate video or live stream but there was very little rhyme or reason to those Toads of the past.
Usher in 2020, our self proclaimed YEAR OF THE TOAD, and we have a plan (you might hear this a lot from us)! We have a theme for our yarn and a list of books that we want to read next year. We’ve organized the books by category and we’ve picked one each month that we invite you to read along with us. We will have weekly discussion threads over on our Facebook Group, Crafting With The Toads and then, at the end of the month, we will record a video with our discussion about the overall book.
