Today, book clubs run the gamut, discussing world events, poetry, bestsellers and much more. If your reading preferences are specific, general, or even unformed, there is a book group waiting for you. While book groups are organized around a love of reading and literary discussion, many consider the occasion equally important as a social and culinary event.
What is a Book Club?
A book discussion group is a gathering of people who love to read and talk about books. While reading is in itself a solitary act, many people have a strong desire to share their reading experience with others. For some, the discussion of a book is an essential aspect of reading it - hours of silent passage demand a return to the realm of verbal exchange.
Reading clubs or groups offer individuals a structured outlet for this desire to speak about books. Within a discussion group, readers can focus their opinions, enhance their understanding and gather new perspectives. In the articulation of thoughts about a book, ideas crystallize and literary characters take on new dimensions. As an added bonus, many enduring friendships may form, fulfilling the need to connect with like-minded individuals.
