6 Ways to Get Involved


We’ve had a bunch of questions lately asking how this whole online book club thing works, so I wanted to officially set the ground rules for the Ultra Manly Book Club.

First of all, the whole idea of iUMBC is to build a community of men who read. This website is a place where we can find good book ideas and share our points of view on books we’ve read. The Ultra Manly Book Club knows that real men read, and we believe that, in order to get the full benefit of reading, it’s good to hear other points of view. I’ve experienced many book club conversations where opinions about a book changed after hearing what others thought of it. Through book club discussions like these, we as men are able to learn more and get a broader perspective of the book. And the more we know, the more Ultra Manly we become. So you have to ask yourself: Do you want to become so Ultra Manly that your friends, family, and coworkers’ brains explode?

Here are the 6 ways you can get involved:

  1. Sign up for our Ultra Manly e-mail updates (don’t worry, we hate spam as much as you do).
  2. Subscribe to our blog via RSS. We’ll continue to give spectacular info on great books, current books club books, and how to be the manliest man you can be.
  3. Join the discussion in the comments sections of our pages and blog posts.
  4. Follow us on twitter.
  5. Follow and post with the #iUMBC hashtag to join the twitter discussion.
  6. Like our Facebook page.

Every month we have a new Book Club discussion at 8:00pm CST on the third Sunday of the month.  Stay tuned for instructions on how to join the online discussion.

About zach

Staring out across the hazy mountain range on his latest summitting of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Zach saw with a clearness he had not yet seen. "People should tremble at the very sound of my name", he thought. And it was so. "I should master the manly arts of the world, such as barehanded hunting and blacksmithing". And it was so. "People should call me Z$". And it was so.
