How many of you belong to a book club in real life?

...and how long have you been in it?  I am in a book club with some co-workers/friends, and we have been a club for just over two years.  We meet every month, and have a great time.  We like to say that our wine club has a book problem!

Re: How many of you belong to a book club in real life?

  • That sounds like perfection to me! 

    I'm in a newly-formed book club with mom friends from the playgroup DS and I are a part of.  We've been meeting monthly for about 6 months now.  I'm really enjoying having RL friends to discuss books with!

  • Everyone on this board is in one...
  • I'm in an English-language book club IRL that we started about three or four years ago. There was a long hiatus when most of our members moved in the same year, but whe I started trying to rekindle it, another expat group was starting a book club too, so we just merged the two. I guess technically I was in one for 2 years and now I've been in another for 1 year, since only two of us have been in both.

  • I've been in one for about 2 years now with a group of teachers in our county.  We meet once a month sometimes for dinner, sometimes for brunch, and sometimes at each others houses.  It's fun and I look forward to it each month.

  • Sadly, I don't have an IRL book club.  But, these ladies on here are wonderful!  And I'm happy to be a part of the NBC!

    I'm still trying to figure out starting up an IRL book club.  My local library has one, but they always pick books I'm sooooooo not interested in.  I've yet to go.

  • I would LOVE to have an IRL Book Club. Seriously, I have considered putting an ad in the paper, but mh looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned it.

    I am just happy to have the ladies on here! I really missed talking books with people between moving here and finding NBC!!!

  • I'm in an IRL book club with some local Nesties. I've been a part of it for about two years now, but it's been going on for a lot longer than that.

  • I am in one with past co-workers. We meet every other month or so. I think we have been meeting for about three years now. I was in a different book group before that one that lasted about 4 years.

    Next week, I am going to a new book group. It is an intergenerational book group so all different ages. I think it should be really interesting. The book this month is Hugo.

  • I'm in one with local Nesties and Bumpies. I've been going for about a year and a half and we typically just meet at a restaurant for dinner.

  • I have been in one for 4 years with about 10 girls.  We meet monthly and rotate whose house we meet at and who cooks dinner.  It has helped push me to read books I might not have picked up on my own.

  • No IRL book club for me.  There's one at my library that must be for retirees or SAHPs, because they meet during the day. 

    In our house we call it "Book Club" when I snuggle up with a book and a blanket in my recliner with my cat, Frodo.  I say "Time for Book Club!" and he comes running  and leaps onto my lap.  He likes to rub his face on my books or my Kindle.  He also loves audiobooks.  Sometimes my husband kidnaps him and takes him to "Computer Lab" against his will.

    I LOVE this!

    I was adopted into an existing book club almost a year ago. We meet once a month. We've been having a hard time picking books lately because one of the girls is a slow reader (so nothing much over 300 pages) and another cries at the drop of a hat, so we try to avoid severely depressing books because she might drown. Smile

    First... I love that your cat's name is Frodo. 

    Second... I also love that he comes and snuggles when it's time to read. How cute is that?

  • I tried to start one in my mommy group, but it's not going over as well as I was hoping it would.

    That's too bad.  I think the key to a good book club is to not have too many members, as it becomes difficult for people to schedule a time to get together.  We have just three people in my book club, and I love it that size, because we all get lots of discussion time in, and our interests and opinions are still varied enough to provide a lot of good book talk.
