A GROUP FORMED TO EXTEND THE RANGE OF EVERYONE’S LITERATURE TASTES BY GROUP RECOMMENDATION AND THEN TO DISCUSS THE BOOK IN A SMALL FRIENDLY GROUP
Who does not love a good book? But do you do your reading alone and are thus constrained by your own appreciation? Do you always stick to the same type of book not really want to extend your experience? Do you wish to talk about a book that you have enjoyed or hated?
Yes? - Then you should join a book club
Book clubs (or Reading groups) are popular as many people want to extend their literary experience and range and a book club performs this requirement in a social and pleasing way. In our group, people meet to discuss a book or books that they have just read and to express their opinions, likes, and dislikes, etc. There is no need to worry if you have not finished a set book, come anyway and express your opinion on what you have read. Not everyone can finish every book and it has been found that everyone has valuable insights.
The groups at BNB meet once a month so that everyone, no matter how busy, gets a chance to finish the set book. We have two clubs in two areas with an afternoon and morning meeting, allowing a time for everyone to attend. However please note that the two groups have different books and are not interchangeable.
The Bulkington Group meets in the Bulkington Community Library and the library service provides a box of books of the same title for members of the group to take away and read, thus being ready for the discussion at the next meeting.
As well as reading the set books both groups discuss books that each member has read and recommends, which enables everyone to broaden their range of genres and authors.
The Bulkington group meets at the Bulkington Community Library on the third Thursday of the month at 14:00 and the Bedworth group meets at the Bedworth Library on the third Wednesday of the month at 14:00.
