And they’re all great (largely because the people who come to them are wonderful.) Besides, a book club’s a fun way to discover new books and chat about them with like-minded folks.
But what if your schedule is too erratic for a traditional book club? Is there still a way for you to participate?
There are 14 online book clubs you can sign up for through Mentor Public Library. They include clubs for classics, new releases, romances, science fiction, audiobooks and more. (Here’s the full list.)
All you have to do is give your email address. Then, chapters from the clubs’ books will be emailed directly to you.
It’s a great way to sample books without having to commit to them. You get a couple of chapters emailed to you. If you have time, read them. If you love it, check the book out from your local library. If you don’t have time or don’t love it, skip the book and try again next time.
And if you really love the book and want to talk about it, each book club has a moderated forum where you can talk about it with other readers.
Check out your options and join a book club that works around your schedule.
