Even though you read a book by yourself, you may want to share your thoughts. Most of us enjoy sharing our opinion about a book read, or movie we have seen – as you know from listening to conversations at the exit door of a movie theater.
Discussion brings out:
If you enjoy books, consider discussing them with others.
Single-book discussion groups usually select book titles in advance and all members read and discuss the same book.
Join a group at your library.
Find titles of selected books for discussions on the calendar events.
Many other book groups meet in the area. Please see staff at your local library for information on groups looking for new members.
Online book groups offer online forums to post your opinions about a selected book and read others' thoughts. Specific clubs usually focus on selected genres.
Blogs (aka web logs). Book-focused blogs usually present a few books along with one person's review or opinion, then allow readers to add their own comments.
Find additional book-based blogs by searching the Internet for "books" and "blog".
Story times (for younger children) are offered in multi-week sessions several times a year. Listen to stories, participate in songs and finger play.
Book Club Kits offer multiple copies (usually 15) of the same title, along with background information on the author and discussion questions. Reserve a kit online.
Come talk with an author! Libraries periodically present programs featuring a visit with an author.
Authors will usually read from their current book, then open the floor for questions and discussion. Please see our calendar or check your local library.
