If you’re in a book club and you’re anything like me, you most likely find that although it’s exciting to be a part of a healthy discussion, the thrill of deciding which book to recommend when it’s your turn, can be worry-some.
When you don’t know which book to choose, this can potentially upset your week, it can lead to procrastination, or anxiety, and more than a few trips to the bookstore.
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
― Stephen King
They say that one person’s nightmare is another’s dream and when it comes to books and book clubs and reading, it’s true. The age old saying good things come in small packages couldn’t be truer. My favorite small package, which I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, brings hours of enjoyment for me, and whoever reads it next. Awesome right?
One of the biggest problems when choosing a book, is not necessarily finding one that’s interesting, but finding one that will get your group talking. Some days, you may find you have plenty of choices floating in your head. Other days, you’ll find you need a bit of inspiration.
With so many areas of your life needing attention, and life being chaotic for most, shouldn’t your night out for book club be a respite from it all? I think this is a pretty obvious yes. If there’s anything you shouldn’t worry about, it’s a good book club book.
Today’s access to online reviews and information is amazing, making it easier and easier to find books. However, while everyone is throwing information out there, not everyone is specifically targeting book clubs. I’m positive that if you keep scrolling – you’re going to find books your book club will love.
These are stories that will get inside your head and get members talking. And there’s plenty of variety – you’ll find character-driven stories, plot-driven stories, stories exploring sensitive topics and stories examining polarizing issues.
