To Join...or Not to Join?

Perhaps you’re a serial book-buyer, compelled to purchase the latest title but never actually finding the time to read it. Or else you’re a library aficionado, placing your name on every hold list at every library within a ten-mile radius of your home. You read to no avail, enjoying the silence and repose of getting lost in a good book. Or maybe you’re somewhere in the middle of these two.

And so the question remains, would a book club take your reading game to the next level?!

Whether or not you fall neatly in the buyers category or squarely in the library’s corner, joining a book club can be a fun and interesting way to gain a new perspective on a book. Though the prospect of becoming a member of a book club can be intimidating, we’re here to say it doesn’t have to be! There are so many options available these days that the preference falls entirely on your desires.

At the end of the day, the question of whether or not to join a book club rests entirely in your hands. We advocate joining one because it’s a way to disconnect from the ramble of our work lives; joining a book club gives us a much-needed separation from some of the stresses that plague a majority of the hours between 9 and 5. Talking about books, reading books, engaging in others work is a fabulous way to keep the traditions of the book industry alive and fruitful.
