How to start a Book Club

How to start a Book Club

Wonder how to start a book club? Starting your own book club is a great way to meet new people and talk about books and the reading experience.

Follow these steps on how to start a book club, and don't be discouraged if some members come and go. Great book clubs don't start overnight and will evolve as members' lives change. In the end, however, you may build some lifelong friendships.

 Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Get together a core group. Ask a group of friends, ask work colleagues or where ever you think there might be like minded people. An ideal size for a book club is 8 - 10 people and it’s a great idea to establish what sort of Book Group you want to be in, for example highly social or academic, or even fiction or non-fiction.
  • Set a meeting and discuss how you want to run your group. You will need to organize who hosts your meeting, where and how often you would like to meet. Share contact details and discuss how you can keep connected.
  • Name your group. Some groups like to give themselves a name (which is helpful if you are using the Library Book Club Sets)
  • Keep a list of the titles you have read. It’s a great idea to keep track of the titles you have read with your group.

Book Groups are fun and it’s important to remember that not everyone will enjoy the book, but often adds to a great and vibrant discussion. Enjoy.
