Emma Watson's feminist book club is now open for fans and feminists to join.
After announcing plans to start a book club on Twitter Wednesday, Watson made good on her promise by launching a group on Goodreads.com named "Our Shared Shelf," a suggestion made to the actress by a fan on Twitter.
"As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on," she wrote in her first message on the forum.
"There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I've been discovering so much that, at times, I've felt like my head was about to explode... I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too."
Watson will choose a new book every month and readers will be able to discuss the work online.
The first book is Gloria Steinem's "My Life in the Road."
To participate, readers must open an account on Goodreads.com and join the group
