How often do Book Clubs MeetSo how often do book clubs meet?
Are we going to book clubs to meet people or books?
If you visit a book shop, will you make good books or make good people? I went to our book shop the other evening with a neighbour. She said she was upset that we hadn't reviewed the book. You know, I tell her I thought that was like most book clubs.
I' m asking her what she wants from a book shop. Neither of them had anything to do with seeing anyone. I think she wanted to go into the book. Said she hadn't been reading many but socializing all the while, so she was expecting book clubs to be about reading. I' ve been reading all this while, but it hasn't come out much.
I' m expecting a book joint to be about hooking up with a bookworm. That made me think, what makes a great book clubs get-together? I' m at another book joint where we have a potato diner. Usually we don't talk about the book over lunch, we just sit around until after lunch. Often we are spending more of our days selecting the book of the next months than debating the book of the present one.
Felt like a good book shop. I am in two on-line book clubs and we do not concentrate more on the face-to-face clubs than the face-to-face clubs. We sometimes write a great deal of e-mails about the book, but it all comes down to that. I wonder if members are leaving our team because we don't concentrate on the book of the mont.
I' ve written a post to the on-line group, which I am moderating and ask what they want from a booklub. Some said they like the week-long debate about what everyone else reads on their own. Someone said he'd like some book literacy inspiration. Nobody seemed interested when I asked them if they wanted to debate a book in detail and in a systematic way.
I' ve been to book clubs on line where they allocate a series of pages a week just to them. And I really liked this group when I was synchronized with the others. I didn't like it when I finished the book myself. I asked my book clubs if they would like to review our book on-line later this months so we could look into it and maybe even speak more about it than we did when we saw each other, but they refused.
The book clubs are about a group, but it is very difficult to get a group to work together. She generally finds more about Wikipedia than book clubs. In book clubs, we often speak more about what we have learnt about a book than what we thought when we learnt the book.
She was expecting the remainder of us to do similar research and contribute our own show-and-telling. There have been encounters where folks even took pictures of their wall. Can I become a better book and bookmaker? The majority of book clubs don't want to think they've done their schoolwork.
A few folks join book clubs to make them felt forced to do more reading, but I don't know how many literature students want to be. So I think that those who really want to know more about a book go to classes or even attend them. Book worms are prone to introversion, so it makes us more sociable to go to book clubs.
However, do book clubs lose outgoing members because they don't focus enough on the book?
