Swagbucks Book Club: Six-Word Memoirs

Posted by on Fri, March 23rd, 2012 at 10:00 am

Welcome to the weekly Swagbucks Book Club post.  We have a fun new way to earn bonus Swag Bucks today writing our own six-word memoirs but first a bit of business.

Thanks to the nearly 1500 people who voted for our next selections last week.  The votes were very close in each category but here are our next 3 selections and the dates of the discussions.

All three books are available in the Swag Store as Kindle versions; or you can put those Amazon and Barnes and Noble gift cards to good use.  Also check the Special Offers section for various book club promotions that include Swag Buck rewards.  And finally, there is always the local library that would love your support.

Next Friday we will be discussing Bossypants by Tina Fey which has been a pleasant surprise to me.  It is much more than a simple memoir.

Which brings us to today’s discussion, the Six-Word Memoir project. What started out with a SMITH magazine piece has grown into several books, a board game and countless blog posts and now it is our turn.  How would you sum up your life in just six words?  Here are some examples from famous contemporary authors:

“The miserable childhood leads to royalties.” —Frank McCourt

“Shiny head. Hippie hair. Shiny head.” —Wally Lamb

“So would you believe me anyway?” —James Frey

Share your six-word memoir in the comments from now until Sunday evening.  I will be hooking up random people with 25 Swag Bucks on Monday which will count towards your March Swagness goal that day. (Get the full rundown on March Swagness here).

Of course I wouldn’t ask you to do anything I wouldn’t do so here is my six-word memoir:

Helping others achieve helps me grow.

I can’t wait to see yours!
