Book Clubs

I’ve been really busy lately, so I haven’t had a ton of time to read. Instead of book reviews, this week’s blog series is going to be about other book-related things. First up: book clubs.

I love reading books, but sometimes it’s even more fun to share what I’ve been reading. That’s obviously one of the reasons why I blog about books that I’ve enjoyed reading, but there’s something even more exciting when you can share great books in person. One of the ways to do this is to start or join a book club!

Book clubs can be pretty informal. Just a pick a book and a time to meet and discuss it. You can meet in someone’s home or a coffee shop or restaurant. Maybe you want to just join a book club to meet new people or to share common interests. Most libraries have book clubs, and some book stores do too.

The thing I love most about book clubs is that I’m often required to read something I otherwise wouldn’t have picked up. Sometimes, you just don’t think you’ll like something, but you end of loving it! That certainly happened with me and some historical fiction like Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.

So, do you have any interest in book clubs? Have you had any positive or negative experiences with them? Feel free to continue the discussion in the comments section.
