Book Reviews, Questions & Discussion Summaries For Book Clubs & Readers' Groups

Updated: Regularly
Scroll to the bottom for links to discussion summaries from my book club

One of the pleasures in recent years has been the proliferation of Book Clubs. Not only do readers have the delight of enjoying a good book - be it a novel, biography or inspirational - they now have the added joy of being able to share - and therefore multiply - their satisfaction with others.

Those 'others' may not be of like-mind! As the leader of a Readers' Group, it never ceases to amaze me how many different nuances of perspective and points of view can emerge from one group discussion. One aspect which gives me immense gratification, is watching the effect as members come to know one another better and become increasingly at ease. The quiet ones come out of themselves. The opinionated become more open-minded. And as fiction touches on fact, and reading experiences encourage the sharing of life experiences, real friendships emerge. What more could you want from a book or a Book Club?

Which is why I gladly offer the Book Reviews, Questions and Discussion Summaries of my real-time Readers' Group to anyone who wants to use them. And I live in hope that an Online Book Club may, eventually, emerge from this aspect of my website blog.  Click here if you would like to know more about setting up a book club; and here for Part 2
