Progressive Book Club

June 18th, 2008 at 8:54 am

Move over Oprah. There’s a new Book Club in town.

But what I can’t understand is why anyone would join a book club started by an Insurance Company. Won’t that make for some rather dull, legalese-filled reading?

Or is it a book club focused on the defunct political party?

Or is it all about mass-produced Italian soup? So it’s a cookbook club! But only soups. Good niche. Go after those solid-food-only eaters/readers. (It is hereby announced that Authwhore is officially launching The Progresso Book Club. More details to follow.)

Progresso Book Club

Or maybe, just maybe, The Progressive Book Club is actually taking the word “progressive” literally:


favoring or advocating progress, change, improvement, or reform, as opposed to wishing to maintain things as they are, esp. in political matters: a progressive mayor.


making progress toward better conditions; employing or advocating more enlightened or liberal ideas, new or experimental methods, etc.: a progressive community.


characterized by such progress, or by continuous improvement.
