Wednesday Wing….Book Clubs. Love ’em? Hate ’em? What works? What doesn’t? #wwwblogs

Following on from last week’s fantastic discussion on book series, this week I want to throw the doors open to a discussion about book clubs.

Rosie's Notebook

I know very little about book clubs, I’ve always steered clear of them, preferring to read my own choice of books, I have a few friends who have dabbled. However they are a way to link readers to writers.

Reading Soft edge

Here are some starter questions, feel free to answer these or let’s see where the discussion takes us.

  • So what makes a good book club?
  • What is the ideal length of time between each meeting?
  • What are the best ways to create a discussion about the book?
  • What is the best way to learn about the books to be reviewed? A list in advance? Or a choice at the meeting?
  • Would you pay a fee to belong to a book club?
  • Virtual book clubs – what are they like?
