Context & Background
My name is Karthi Subbaraman and here is my short bio. You can find me on LinkedIn here. This entire craziness about Book Club started here. It was so good to see so many people coming together on a simple idea. I was hesitant to add one more project to my plate but nevertheless decided to do it because a lovely bunch of folks came together and told me we will not do this alone but we will do this together. We decided to change the math from 1+1=2 to 1+1=11.
Now that we started this, we know for a fact that we can’t take up more, so we decided to write a playbook so that we can spread the reading revolution across the planet.
Treat this playbook as an expression of our experience in doing just one book club. It is a limited experience. The book club has not even crossed day 10 of it’s birth. So take it with a pinch of salt. Treat this as ONE point of view. I am sure the playbook can become bigger and better with many point of views.
We are open to append and correct ourselves when better ideas hit us from anywhere. We are an inclusive bunch of passionate product makers. We have a perspective about everything (like all product people should be) but we are humble and grounded enough to take POVs as they come.
