S/O IRL Book Clubs

I have been in one for about 4 months and it is awesome! Our biggest problem is trying to find a place to hold it. Right now we meet at Panera; we aren't close friends so I think we are holding out on having it at our houses but maybe down the road we will be more open to it...

Were is your book club hosted?

Re: S/O IRL Book Clubs

  • We meet at a different restaurant each month. We try to go to one that will tie in to the book we're reading...we read Anna and the French Kiss last month and went to a Creperie.

    "People talk about escapism as if it's a bad thing... Once you've escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn't have before. Then you are better equipped to deal with your current reality."
    - Neil Gaiman

  • We had our first meetings at a Chilis, Starbucks and Panera, but after that we all just started hosting. We alternate.

  • We meet at a cafe. That way people don't have to remember to bring anything, no one has to clean up, and if you want food/drinks it's there. We tried a few places at first, picking something new each month, but then we settled on one place we all liked.

    My previous group was closer knit, and we met at someone's flat each month. I like the cafe better, because I don't have to worry about eating beforehand or bringing wine.

  • We usually meet at each other's houses, but some people choose to have it at Panera or Starbucks when it is their turn to host.

  • We take turns hosting, but I like this cafe/restaurant idea better. I hate when it is time to host. We have a vegetarian, a gluten free person, one that is always on a strict diet. It is so hard to plan a meal. Then, after I spend time shopping and cooking and catering to all these diet restrictions, one or two people always cancel last minute. Usually the vegetarian or the gluten free that I have planned the meal around. Drives me crazy!!

  • We meet in the cafe section of a local bookstore. Occasionally, we'll meet at someone's house if we decide to do something extra for that month's book. Like, we watched To Kill A Mockingbird before we discussed the book. And last October, we had a small Halloween party.
