acim authors ago my three sisters and I started our very own book club. It was a lot of fun for us to do as it not only brought us closer together, but we also got to read some great books together! Today book of the month clubs are a great way to bring this to life of your loved ones with ease and affordability.
For our first book club meeting we decided on “The Joy Luck Club” by Amy Tan. This was a great first read. All of us bought a copy of the book and had a full month to read it. Some of us read it much quicker than others, but all of us managed to finish the book in the allotted time frame. After the month had passed, we had a gathering at one of our homes. That night we feasted upon Chinese food and talked about the emotional book.
It was a lot of fun and what was interesting is that we had all been able to relate to certain characters and formed different opinions about those characters. Some of us loved one, while the others hated. To go with the book club night we served delicious steamed chicken dumplings, Kung Pao shrimp, fried rice and other fragrant Chinese delights. After we talked about the book and had our delicious dinner, we also watched the movie. It was a great night for all of us!
We continued the book club for some time after that and we all look back upon that time with great fondness. As we are not all in the same city anymore, we have abandoned the sister book club of gathering together each month. However, book of the month clubs are a great way to keep the reading spirit alive!
Book of the month clubs are as varied and diverse as books themselves. They cover all sorts of subjects and genres and are perfect for gift-giving. New York Times best-selling authors and books are available to be delivered to your door.
Last Christmas I decided to keep the book reading alive with my sisters and enrolled all four of us in a book of the month club. Each month, we are all delivered the same book. We spend the month reading the book at a leisurely pace, and then on the 1st of each month we have a conference call where we spend the night talking about our favorite characters, moments and scenes from the book. It is a great way for us to spend some quality time together and bring those book clubs moments back to life!
