When Emma Watson kicked off 2016 by founding a feminist book club, she had legions of her fans inspired to get offline and pick up the first book in the club's reading list, activist and journalist Gloria Steinem's autobiography.

And the latest recruit to the club, named Our Shared Shelf, is a familiar face: model, baker, coder and all-round inspiration Karlie Kloss.

Kloss took to Instagram with a photo of her clutching a copy of Steinem's My Life on the Road, writing "Hey, @emmawatson, about that book club ... Count me in!"

And by looks of it, Kloss is an eager book worm, as she's already half way through the novel.

The book squad is Watson's way to share her favorite feminist books and to encourage her fans to open up and discuss their views on what they've read.

At goodreads.com there's a reading list of Watson-approved books, with one for every month. And in the last week, the actress will open up a public online discussion. Members can also use the discussion board to weigh in on any major feminist topics they want.

"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," Watson writes on the page. "I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too."

So far the group has more than 97,000 members, and rising. Count us in!
