BOOK CLUB MAKEOVER….
#1 Members will pick a book the first week of of the month, and discuss it the last week of each month. This gives them an entire month to read their book. They could also read several books during the month and then join a discussion with us.
#2 We’re going to move the book club to once a month discussion rather than once a week. This removes the spoiler alerts!! Local book clubs typically meet 12 times a year, once a month, with a different theme (and meal) each month. They also rotate the hostess/home for the event.
#3 We seem to get better engagement if the Book club discussion does not have a specific TIME of day associated with it. There is resistance to “its not in my time zone, I cant meet that day” because we are a global community.
#4 It also works better if the book club format is not the same as the Bible study format. We have a separate group for Bible studies. The objective of a book club is entertainment not education. But we do like reading nonfiction…so instead of asking 40 questions about a single book (when we meet once a week with 10 questions) we will instead have more generalized questions and it will be informal as if we are sitting in a living room or a library room together. Books on our laps, not flashcards with questions 🙂
WEEK ONE OF THE MONTH: Promote the books and invite women to join. Share links to bookstores and libraries where they can find their books. Share links to author bios (from the author websites) if available. Volunteer leaders can promote your event everyday that first week, if you choose to. You could make a video, if you wanted…or upload a photo of you (selfie) holding the book. On a beach. 🙂
WEEK TWO OF THE MONTH: Volunteer leaders share a random post from the book, such as a quote, or an image, or even an article related to the book topic (such as South Pacific, if book is on that topic).
WEEK THREE OF THE MONTH: Random encouragement, FUN book reading memes are engaging content.
WEEK FOUR OF THE MONTH: Discussion on the book. Volunteer leaders can choose to do this as a Facebook Live (video), or as a chat under a photo (
