“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.â€
There is, in fact, a treasure trove of books relating to all things Disney, and we saw this as a great opportunity to broaden the Disney fan experience and study these works in a fun and informative way!Â Introducing… the WDW Radio Disney Book Club, a new andÂ engaging way to share our love for Disney and learn more about the magic.
EVERYONE and ANYONE is welcome to join.
There are NO membership feesÂ or requirements–justÂ join inÂ the experience of reading a Disney book and share your thoughts!!
PICK AND CHOOSE THE BOOKS YOUâ€™D LIKE TO READ AND PARTICIPATE IN!
The process is really very simple:
At first, we will begin by choosing the book for the book club.Â In future selections, we will select books by group consensus.
We will create a suggested schedule for reading the book, which we will publish on the reading club blog.Â Additionally, each week, we will post discussion question(s) in the blog about the chapter for the week.Â Â Feel free to comment on the blog and add your thoughts!
- When the book is finished, we will host a show to discuss the book and answer questions posed by participants. If and when possible, we will have authors join us for the show and answer questions.
There will be plenty of opportunities for prizes and guest participation, so be sure to stay tuned!
As always, we welcome your feedback and thoughts to make this a valuable and fun experience that enriches our collective appreciation and affection for Disney!
So, the natural question is…. what are we going to read?
Well, without further adoâ€¦ weÂ are proudÂ to announce that our first WDW Radio Disney Book Club selection isâ€¦â€¦.
Kingdom Keepers IV: Power Play – the latest in the wildly popular series by Ridley Pearson.
You can also LISTEN to Kingdom Keepers IV and ALL of the titles in the Kingdom Keepers series
on your iPhone, Android or Kindle at Audible.com
Don’t fear if you have not read the first three books. The works can be read independently of one another.Â They are enjoyable, easy reads and an excellent choiceÂ for a FAMILY reading activity! Perfect for young adults and kids at heart, the Kingdom Keepers series features five teenagers who serve as “Holographic Hosts” at Walt Disney World.Â TheÂ teens find themselves in the position of having to preserve the magic of Disney from the Overtakers, Disney villains bent onÂ ending magic.Â Â Ridley Pearson has impeccably researched his books, so the stories are filled with a wealth of fun Disney insights for the Disney fan.Â For more information on Ridley Pearson and the Kingdom Keepers series, please visit www.ridleypearson.com
In order to give people time to acquire the book–whichÂ can be found on store shelves April 5–we will publish the reading calendar and discussion dates during the week of April 11.Â Also during that week, we will publish a blog update with discussion questions.
We are looking forward to a great, dynamic conversation!!Â Let the treasure hunting begin!
