About Our Site

TheReadingClub was formed to offer a unique reference point on starting and running your own reading and book club.

Have you ever wondered how to start a book club? Or wished you could be a better reading group leader? Ever wondered how to tackle certain genres or types of books in book discussions? Or agonized over how to organize book club meetings? Perhaps you'd like to know how to deal with the problem member who is monopolizing all discussions - or even simply encouraging members to participate and contribute more? TheReadingClub answers all these questions and more.

Despite the advent of the internet and other innovative media, book clubs and reading groups remain popular with many people keen to start one and run one. Not only do they offer an opportunity for like-minded individuals to discuss their favourite books but they also provide great opportunities for socializing and general learning.

Book clubs and reading groups can also be a great social outlet for children and young adults, enabling them to not only have an opportunity to exchange ideas and meet like-minded friends but to also learn important life skills such as leadership skills, communication skills and organization skills.

We offer advice on how to create and run a good book club, as well as tips, practical advice and interesting features on all aspects of reading groups and their organization, from handling relationships within the group and planning themed events to how to tackle certain genres or types of books and how to encourage lively discussion.
