Why Join a book club

Why join a book club:

  • Read new books
  • Hear different opinions
  • Motivation to read
  • Social ties
  • Develop narrative ideas, genres and characterisations

Read new books

Book clubs expose you to books you wouldn't normally read. Sometimes certain books don't suite your taste and you'll either stop reading or slog your way through. Either way, you're gaining insight into yourself, your personality and the personality of the book club member who suggested that book. Getting the most out of book club involves reading new books and books that push you away from your comfort zone.


Listening to different opinions

Hearing – the opinions of other people is crucial to growing into a well-rounded, developed person. Reflecting on the thoughts and perspectives of others opens up your brain to a whole new world.

Learning how to share your thoughts and opinions, especially if you disagree, teaches communication and social skills.

Getting the most out of book club is about listening to other perspectives.


Motivation to read

There are no longer any excuses as a book club forces you to read.

When you're part of a book club you have a reason or even an excuse to read.

Getting the most out of book club is about reading for a reason.


Social ties

Most book clubs aren't only about reading the book and discussing characterisation, literary devices, plot, function versus form, theme, etc.

Book clubs are about your take on the book and characters – and your feelings and thoughts about what happened inside the pages. When you share your perspective, you get the most out of book club. You forge connections with others that you may not otherwise have found. You'll disagree, agree, and be confused - but you'll hardly ever be bored.


Develop narrative ideas, genres and characterisations

For the budding writer, book clubs expose you to a whole new world of genres, characterisations and ideas that you would not have realised or even understood before.

Another key aspect for writers is knowing your audience and how to relate to them. Book clubs offer real expressions and opinions from your potential readers.

  • Book clubs:
  • Are about having fun and connecting on a social level with other like minded people.
  • Expression of yourself in a safe space.
  • Expanding your knowledge of literary devices.
  • Motivation to read and gain a better understanding of yourself, club members.
