Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2017
Seek out the devoted readers among your friends and invite them along. Encourage them to bring other friends to help get the group going. Some discussion questions to consider Sometimes it can be difficult to get the discussion going. Here are some easy questions you might like to use. • Did you find the book engaging? • If you could ask the author one question, what would it be? • Do you think the characters were convincing? • What did you think of the ending? • Would you recommend this book to others? Talk to your local library to identify available meeting times that will suit your group. Library staff can also help you with choosing books to read, sourcing available copies and provide tips for starting out. Establish some ground rules during your first meeting. Things like who decides what books to read, how discussions are led and what commitments are expected to help your book club run smoothly. Keep inviting new members – the more the merrier! There are always people wanting to join a book club. Talk to your local library staff, as they can help you attract more members. Have fun! The best book clubs are those where there is plenty of discussion, lots of laughter and a nice cup of tea. Book clubs are also a great motivation to keep reading and venture outside of your literary comfort zone! 17
