BTT: Discuss!

This week Booking Through Thursday ask:
Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
     I love to talk about what I read.  In fact, one of the reasons that I started this blog.  To talk the books that I had read.

     When I moved to Miami, I found it hard to meet people that shared like interest.  The only book club in the area is far for me to travel since I don't have a car and it was on a weeknight.  Which meant that if I did go, I wouldn't return home until after 10 or 11 in the evening.  

     To solve this problem, a year ago I started my own book club on Meetup.  This has been a great experience, there are about 10 regulars that show up often.  Most book club meetings about 5 people (including my self) attend.  It's a challenge to find books that I think everyone will enjoy and that will lead to an interesting discussion but I love it.

     If you are looking to meet people that have bookish interest like you and can't find anyone I highly suggest starting your own book club.  Meetup is a great place to do it, even though it is not free but you can change yearly dues.


  1. It's great that you created your own book club!

  2. Sheila, at Book Journey, started her own book club years ago and she regularly blogs about their activities, complete with pictures.

    I would love to do that.

    Here's MY BTT POST

  3. That sounds like a great idea.

  4. Starting your own book club is an interesting idea.

  5. I don't know why but I just don't see myself formally doing a book club. It's hard finding people in your area. Here's my From the Pile and my Musing

  6. I only talk about the books I read with a few people. I feel like I don't read the sorts of books most people read and they can think I'm judging them or I think they are judging me, and it can be awkward. So - only a few people :-) But I recommend books to everyone!
