Start up your own book club and make new friends

Many people enjoy settling down with a good book and are eager to talk about their current read especially if it is absorbing so what better way to do this than start a book club.

The main idea of a book club is that everyone reads the same book and then either meets up in person to talk about it or online if meeting up is not possible. Some novels have ideas for discussions at the end of the book that can be used to stimulate debate and provoke thoughts into character motives, plot lines and author intent giving the group a good starting point for discussion.

Another way to organise a book club is to use it as a way of swapping books that have been enjoyed. Obviously, discussions about the book could only take place once every member has read the book to avoid any spoilers. Members could however provide a brief synopsis of the book whilst not revealing any twists that the story may contain.

Joining a book club is a good way to make new friends with similar interests as yourself and it is certainly worth finding out if such a club exists if you move to a new area.
