Swagbucks Book Club – The Great Gatsby Discussion

Welcome to the Swagbucks Book Club.  Hope you have had a fantastic week.

Today we are discussing the reading selection for April – The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  So grab your mint julep, put on that long string of pearls and get ready for a roaring time.  Thank you to everyone who voted in last week’s poll, the winning title for May is 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  Pick up your copy now at amazon, putting those Amazon Gift Cards to good use.  Or support Barnes & Noble with your Barnes & Noble Gift Cards from the Rewards Store.  7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been a best seller since its release in 2004 so it should also be readily available in libraries and second-hand stores.  We will meet to discuss our May selection on the last Friday of the month, May 31st.

Keeping with today’s theme, here is a video from SBTV about a new Gatsby-inspired line of clothing.


The Great Gatsby movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio is coming out May 5th.  (Shameless plug: Grab a Fandango Gift Card from the Rewards Store here)  Regardless of how well it represents the book it looks like a fun costume party.

Here’s how today’s discussion works.  I will post questions/topics in the comments below regarding The Great Gatsby for your responses, but feel free to ask your own questions or share your own observations/feelings about this book too.  The discussion lasts throughout the weekend so pop in when you can.  On Monday I will randomly pick 10 contributors and deposit 25 Swag Bucks each into their accounts.  Not a bad way to start the week, right?
