Sharing is caring!

It happens. You choose THE perfect Book Club Book for your next meeting, and you can’t find the Book Club Questions! That’s when you need General Book Club Questions.

You want to shout from the rooftop to everyone. READ THIS BOOK!  It’s that good.

What can you do if you need General Book Club Questions?

The first thing I always do is visit the publisher and author’s websites and look for a reader’s guide. Usually, there are some interesting facts or pictures about the book.

This will give you a little something extra to discuss. And don’t forget the author bios; they’re always worth reading.

I then used the General Book Club Questions with my gathered information.  It gives everyone a more meaningful look into the book.  Here are the General Book Club Questions pdf 

General Book Club Questions

  1. Why was the book selected? Is there anything unique about this book, such as writing style, structure, or subject matter? Did it enhance or distract from the story?

  3. What was the central theme of the book? How did the time period or setting impact the plot? Does it translate to today’s standards?

  4. Who are the central characters? Are there any characters that you particularly liked or disliked? Why? Would you have changed anything about the characters? Could any of the characters be omitted from the book?
