Book Club Questions For 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster & Starting You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

I can't believe we are already onto the next book for Books Without Borders! The first book that we read was 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster. Honestly, I could not finish this book. I got 30% of the way through, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. The writing in this book was amazing and for you out there that like this style of book, I am sure you loved it!

Based on what I read, I have a couple questions for you who are participating. I would love to hear your responses either in the comments or on social media! 

1. Of the three (longer) lives of Archibald Ferguson—a journalist, a memoirist, a novelist—which do you prefer? Which engaged you more, which has a preferable outcome in your estimation?

2. To what degree, in terms of an irreducible identity, are the Archies similar? Are they sometimes too similar, making it hard to distinguish one life from another? Or do you find each Archid distinct from the other?

3. Archie's "sole ambition" is to "become the hero of his own life." Does he achieve this goal in any of his incarnations? What does that ambition say about someone?
The second book we are going to be reading is You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero. We will be starting You Are A Badass on March 1st and ending on April 1st.

Synopsis From Goodreads: "Bestselling author, speaker, and success coach Jen Sincero cuts through the din of the self-help genre with her own verbal meat cleaver. Full of blunt humor, sage advice, and the occasional swear word, You are a Badass offers its readers new opportunities for growth through 35 chapters of exercises, suggestions, and hilariously inspiring stories.

From "Fear is for Suckers" to "Your Brain is Your Bitch" these chapters provide enlightening lessons: How to stop doubting your greatness, how to love what you don't love about yourself, and how to tap into source energy to live a bigger life than you've ever imagined."

A reminder that this is a very relaxed book club. You can read a book than skip a book then come back and read another book with the club. Whatever you want to do. We are super excited to get started and hope you all will join us. :) To learn more visit the 2017 Books Without Borders Tackk!
