Starting a book club is easy! Hey Girl Moguls! Rose here, with a great idea you can try this back to school time – it’s a great idea to make and meet new friends who share the same interest…starting a book club! The idea at first might not seem that exciting, but it’s a great way to have fun with your friends while also getting a chance to read some fantastic books. All you have to do is find a couple other friends who like to read and get them together with a good book. You can even use it to get to know new friends – after all anyone who likes to read can’t be all that bad. Doesn’t sound too hard, huh? And you can pick any book you want for your book club, so be creative! If you all can’t agree on one book, take turns so that each person gets their choice.
Remember to choose how frequently you’ll have meetings (and where to hold them!) There are two different ways to schedule them: while reading your book or after you finish. If you make your meetings while reading, you can discuss what you like so far in the book and guess what will happen next (and give prizes to the person who guesses the ending most accurately!) If you have your meetings at the end, you can talk about the book in its entirety, and what you loved the most.
Your meetings don’t have to be all intellectual, though. You can make fun snacks or, if you’re more ambitious, plan your meetings around a meal. You can try cooking dishes from the time period in which your book takes place…or just order pizza! To add a fun twist on your meetings, rent the movie of the book you picked (if there is one) and watch it. You can discuss what the movie portrayed differently from the book and which you liked better. Book clubs are a great way to take a solo activity and share it with a group of friends, and you get to learn at the same time! Happy reading!
