Plainville, Conn. (PRWEB) January 16, 2015
Reading and getting together with friends are two of the most popular resolutions people make each year – and starting or joining a book club is one way to easily do both. Of course, the question then becomes: How? The answer is found in a newly published book, “Beyond the Book: How to Start or Jumpstart a Book Club,” which is filled with proven ways to create highly successful book club. Available now on Amazon.com, this guidebook walks readers step-by-step through the process of creating (or energizing) a book club that endures. Information includes ways to select the best members, the best books, the best meeting locations, and the best themes to make a fun, memorable and enduring book club.
“Beyond the Book: How to Start or Jumpstart a Book Club” was written by longtime members of the “Book and Beyond” book club, Suzanne Colley and Kathleen Marsan. For more than a decade, their energetic club has met regularly for casual or more elaborate themed meetings, taken road trips, and (carefully) grown by adding new members who embrace the spirit of reading with friends.
“Whenever we talk about the fun and friendship we share through our book club, people ask how they can start one, or share woes that their book club fell apart,” the authors explained. “We decided to write down our secrets to success to encourage any book lover to create an enjoyable and long-lasting club of their own.”
Colley and Marsan’s book club journey has included opportunities to read and volunteer within the community, meet up with favorite authors, and take countless steps to spread their love of books. This guide details how readers can make that happen in their own club, too. The book includes a bonus chapter on starting a book club for children and young adults.
“Beyond the Book: How to Start or Jumpstart a Book Club” is now available for $10.00 on Amazon.com.
