How To Start A Book Club And Keep It Going

Do you love to read and you would love to share your passion for books with other people? If so, you may want to consider starting your own book club! A book club is the perfect way to share your love of books with other like minded people, while forming friendships that will last for years.

If you want to start a book club, first begin by recruiting friends you have that share your love of reading. Depending on how big you want your club to be, ask your friends if they have friends that would like to join. Or, you could put up a notice on the internet, and this way you will get the chance to meet people you might not have ever met before. Meeting different book lovers that you don’t know could be your opportunity to be exposed to literature you may not have been exposed to before.

When you get your group together, you should all first meet up in a public spot like a bookstore, or a library. This way you can all get to know each other a little bit, and it will take away the awkwardness of going to a stranger’s house. Once you all get aquainted, you can always transfer your meetings to someone’s home.

Of course the books are the main course in any book club, but make sure that there are treats and beverages for everyone to enjoy while discussing the book of the week. A nice cup of warm coffee is the perfect accent to any book reading adventure. Make these discussions fun with food and drink and welcoming company, and you can be certain that your book club will be a hit that will have everyone coming back week after week.
