Ultimate Soul Nourishing Guide for Book Clubs and Reading Clubs

Amazon Customer "Jacquelyn E Whitford"
The list author says: "I have been in love with books and book clubs ever since I learned my grandmother created one back in the 1920s. It began with my grandmother, her two best friends and my mother's godmother. They called it the Inner Circle. The group expanded from book reading to include putting on plays and establishing charitable donations for churches and families in need. The club is still in existence today.

Amazon has a page devoted to book club selections for all ages. There are book club guides and companions for every age - including book clubs in schools. And of course there are book lover journals and diaries to record your reading memories.

In a world gone digital, book clubs are a great way to connect with friends, mothers and daughters, teachers and students.

Consider starting a summer book club with your kids based on their reading list, or a monthly book club with your close friends.

Make it a themed book club (books made into movies, cookbooks, mysteries, romances, etc.) You can even base it on a monthly subscription to a magazine (like a group did in DC for the New Yorker Magazine.)

Whatever you do, just make it fun and rewarding for everyone involved."
