Hello book friends! Starting a book club is relatively easy but can you hold onto to your group for years to come? Several acquaintances of mine have started book clubs that quit within the first year. Maybe it has to be the right combination of friends. Maybe your book picks stink. Maybe it's a time issue. Meaning, no one has time to read a book or organize one.
I will tell you the #1 secret why I think our book club has endured for over ten years. FOOD. That's right, no joke. I'm inspired by the quote by C.S. Lewis, “Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably". There you go. Those two actions are what makes book club something to look forward to every time it comes around. We celebrate our novel with tasty dishes (brought by everyone in the group) and easy ideas to go beyond. Little things you can do to make it fun and be inspired by your book pick!
My name is The Book Club Blogger and my two loves are reading and running. Actually, more like the 3R's; read, run and relaxation. I dedicate Go Beyond Book Club to my beloved book friends and thank them all for the good, the bad and the ugly novels we have read together over these many years.
