Madi’s Read-Along Club

Though my work as a dialogue facilitator is based on Marshall Rosenberg’s work, Nonviolent Communication, I’ve always been fascinated with human interactions and communication, so I learn as much as I can from as many sources as I can. I love books and reading. I love sharing my takeaways.

Are you looking for a boost to read more books?

Have you been looking for some inspiration on how to bring more cooperation in your relationships?

Do you find joy in learning about human interactions?

Then Madi’s Read-Along Club is for you!



Frequent Asked Questions

When will the next book be announced?

The book of next month is announced at the end of the email with my takeaways from the book of the current month. You can read along with me, you can start later, or you can skip the book altogether.

How often will you email me? I already have a full inbox.

I am writing to you ONCE a month. (NOTE: If you have subscribed to other lists of mine, you might receive other emails, of course. But for this read-along, you will receive just one email per month.)

I know you practice Nonviolent Communication. Are all the books about Nonviolent Communication?

No. Actually very few of them will be on/about Nonviolent Communication. As I said, I like to learn about as many approaches as possible and add to what I know. See the list of the books read/ announced so far at the end of this page.

How do you choose the books?

The books I propose are books that are on my reading list. So I am reading them once I announce them.

Will there be live online meetings?

For the moment, this is just email-based. At some point, I plan to offer live meetings too so we can discuss our takeaways. First, I want to see how many members will stay engaged and open my emails and where they live (accommodating time zones can be quite challenging).

Will you offer books for FREE?

This is a free online read-along club. Each member buys their own copy.

Do I have to read at the same speed as you?

You don’t even have to read the books in order. You’ll have access to the newsletter archive so you can read all the announcements and reviews/ takeaways the members have received so far.

Do I have to pay for my subscription?

This is a gift of mine for my community.

I would like to make a book suggestion!

Great. Reply to any of the emails you’ll receive from me after joining or use the contact page on my website.
