I’ve been in a few book clubs over the past few years and have enjoyed them. This year my church started a book club, where we read nonfiction and occasionally Christian fiction, and a friend of mine and I are starting a fiction book club this summer. If you live in central Indiana, we would love to have you in one or both of these groups!
Fiction Book Club
We will meet the first Wednesday of every month, beginning on June 1, from 7-9 pm. Our first book will be The Help, which was one of my top books for 2009. At the first meeting we’ll let you know what the other books will be for the first few months – we haven’t quite decided yet! But The Help is kind of long, so you might want to go ahead and get started on it if you’d like to attend.
Crossroads Book Club
So far this group has read From Clutter to Clarity and What Did You Expect. I’ve been really impressed with the depth of discussion in this group and I’ve learned a lot from reading these books with other women. Upcoming books include:
- Same Kind of Different As Me (Wednesday June 29 – my review)
- A Praying Life (August – my review)
- Gospel-Powered Parenting (October)
- Gilead (December)
If you’re interested in either or both of these groups, please send me an email and let me know so I can send you specifics.
If you’re not in Indiana or are already in a book club, what are some of the best books your club has read? It seems like not all books are good for book clubs, so I’m interested to hear which ones turned into good discussion in your group.
