We Started A Book Club!

book club

 

Being English majors, we were used to having a hefty reading list throughout the semester. Not just reading, but discussing important concepts in a book and talking about it with others.  Now, as graduated adults working full time, we’ve found it hard to continue reading for pleasure. We decided that one way we could stay on track with reading would to have something to motivate us. We figured the best way to go about this would be to create a book club.

Getting Started

In order to create a successful book club, we had to gather enough people. It’s hard enough in our day to day lives to meet up with others, so we did what any other millennial would do: set up an online group through social media. This way people could stay up to date on what we were reading, when we would discuss throughout the month and the poll for the following month’s book choice. Belle set up a Facebook page and we each set to inviting people we thought would want to be involved. Our page is open as well, so if you’re interested please join us!

How it Works

Life is busy, so only do one book a month. One person a month creates a poll of three options, and then the book with the most votes wins (duh)! Midway through the month, we have an online forum to discuss the first half of the book. Anyone can post questions about anything, and everyone can answer in any way.

At the end of the month, it’s fun to go out and mix things up. We picked a coffee spot somewhere in the middle of the majority of our members and talked about the book over coffee. And our lives. And tattoos. And the cute guy in the corner. It’s hard to stay focused some times.

We just started month two, but so far we’re in love with our book club. It’s small and we hope to help it grow, but it’s been amazing to have something to read and discuss again. Even if you’re not an English major like us, or even a book fanatic, we’d still encourage you to be a part of a book club! It’s a great way to stay in touch with people, meet new people, and try new things.

    This is great! I think anything that encourages people to read more is good. I also started reading more this year and so far I’ve read 24 books… Good luck with the book club, ladies! 🙂

      That’s fantastic! 24 has also been my yearly goal. I’m hoping to build it up towards 36!

      Have you tried audio books? It’s a great way to still cross some books off you’re too-read list when reading is difficult. I listen to my audiobook every morning while doing my makeup!

    I LOVE this idea! Reading is such a great way to unwind and relax, and it’s something I have to constantly make time for with running my travel blog and all. I have found that listening to audiobooks is really relaxing too! 🙂
