October is National Reading Group Month which works out because it brings up a topic I've been wanting to discuss.
Starting a book club.
I've never participated in a real life official book club with multiple members and monthly meetings with in depth discussion about the topics brought up in a book. I picture good food and drinks and lots of interesting discussion and laughing.
And I realize most people don't have much time for anything extra, but I do know that many people out there have successful book clubs. How do you do it? Where would I find a group of girls with whom I want to spend time who are willing to commit? Do I do it at work or try to convince the few readers I know outside of there to commit even though geographically we're fairly far apart? And realistically, do I even have time to commit? Maybe it's something I should aim for sometime next year after I'm done with school. Or maybe I should join in on one through a bookstore or something like that?
What thoughts and/or experiences can you share?
Welcome to Take Me Away!!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away, where I review books of a variety of genres. My favorite genres are literary and contemporary fiction, though I also enjoy some mystery/thrillers. I also enjoy sociological and psychological non-fiction. Check out the tabs across the top to navigate the site. All the reviews on this site are categorized by title (fiction or non-fiction) or by author. Check out the "About Jenny" section to learn a little more about me. Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi! =)
