I love to read and I read a lot. But I have never joined a book club. I'm not sure I would enjoy having to read this particular book by his particular date. Although meeting up to chat about it after would be fun I don't know anyone who is part of a book club either or I might give it a try Have you ever been part of one?

@YesWay Yesterday I saw a book Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho. I liked the plot so have started reading the same. Which one are you reading currently?

I joined a book club years ago, but then I stopped. I was not interested to read only the books they proposed.

@ladyduck Yes I think that would be my problem. Then I wouldn't read the book but I would have to pretend I did and it would be like being back at school again

Reading books is one of the tools of learning. Joining a book club of course is nice. Because you will be joining others whose interest is also books.

I am going back to my book club from the library. If i don't like the book to get it read, or if i don't go that month! i am going for sure October 28 the next meeting of the club! I am starting to read more, but for awhile I wasn't reading that quickly and not getting many books finished. I do love to read and look forward to reading each day.

I love to read, but not what others tell me to. We have to be in a book club at work sometimes and it is always a book about education or child psychology.
