October is National Reading Group Month

8 Oct


I am involved in two reading groups.  By The Book is in its 9th year.  We read almost exclusively Christian fiction.  Our favorite genre is suspense.  We meet once a month at a local restaurant to discuss the month’s selection.  Everyone reads the same book.  Our October selection is False Pretenses by Kathy Herman.  Click HERE to see our 2011 book choices.

I just joined a second group in September — a Baptist Women’s Roundtable.  It is set up a differently than By The Book. We have 12 members and 12 book selections a year, both nonfiction and fiction. We are given a book each month to read and then pass it on to another member the next month.    By the end of the year we have the opportunity to read all 12 books. Every month a member gives a report on one specific book.  My assigned book for October is The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin.

    That roundtable approach sounds interesting!

    I’m not in any bookclubs myself, mainly because I don’t like to be tied down to reading a certain book at a certain time.

      I understand, sometimes I am not in the mood for the book I have to read. But usually I get into it and love it. It helps that I make the list of books that my group, By The Book, selects from! I also really enjoy discussing a book with others who have read it. It gets really interesting when we don’t all like the book! Thanks for stopping by.
