Online Book Clubs

There seem to be lots of online book clubs – just Google “online book club” and you’ll see a slew of results.

Today I want to share about two opportunities for next year if you’re interested in joining in with an online group. I’d love if you’d consider joining me in one or the other of them (or even both!)

Booked Online Book Clubs

Reading Together: A Family Exploration Book Club

This is a joint project with Jessica of Quirky Bookworm. Every month will be themed, and we’ll have assigned books, including a picture book, elementary book, and young adult book connected to that theme. If you’ve got little kids, read them the picture book! If you’ve got older kids, you can pick which book is right for them. Or read them both if that fits. If you’ve got no kids, well you’re more than welcome to join in anyway – reading whichever book from the set you like.

We’re also going to have different bloggers as cohosts each month, helping to facilitate the discussions through a Facebook group we’ll be establishing. Not interested in joining in on Facebook? We’ll also have a monthly linkup through our blogs, where you can share about the book (if you blog), or add your thoughts in the comments.

Additional details will be coming soon, once we get them finalized.

The Deliberate Reader Book Club

I’m also going to be running a second book club next year, featuring a mix of fiction and nonfiction (no children’s or young adult titles in this group). I’m still finalizing the titles for it, so stay tuned for the first title announcement. (I’ll give you a hint though: If you’ve read my suggestions for fiction and nonfiction you’ll probably recognize many of the books – I’m trying to pick all new-to-me books, and and I’m using those lists as my starting point.

This will also have a discussion component through Facebook – I’d love to have it all on the blog, but don’t know of a way to make it as convenient as a closed Facebook group. Don’t do Facebook? There will be monthly posts on the book, so if you’d like to link up a blog post or share your thoughts in the comments there I’d love to hear them!

If you’d be interested in helping to facilitate one of the books for this, please let me know – I’d love to get some extra voices involved for varying perspectives.

Stay tuned for more details on both of these opportunities!

  1. I’m so excited about the family book club. And the adult book club sounds fun too. I’m sure I’ll join in for that as well – at least for the fiction months. I’m not a huge fan of non-fiction, as you know. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m glad to hear you’ll be joining in on both, at least for the fiction months. I’m still working on the book list, so maybe I can pick some nonfiction titles that will tempt you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Looking forward to the Deliberate Reader adult book club! I also would be interested in facilitating one of the book’s discussions if you find yourself in need of “non-expert” people. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying this 31 day series! I only wish I could time travel from AZ and join up with you and your cohorts when you meet. Guess I will have to settle for gleaning and applying to my own group. Thanks for all the great information!

    • I would love to have you facilitate one month’s discussion! I’ll be in touch via email so we can work out the month & book.

      And I would love it if you could zip over here from Arizona to join in our monthly meetings. How fun would that be!

  3. Excited about the Deliberate Reader Book Club and would love to give it a try!
