Book Clubs are a superb way of meeting like minded people and also of reading books that may not be in your comfort zone. Branching out, you may not enjoy every book, but you will find some that you love, that you would never have thought of reading.
RTE Radio presenter Ryan Tubridy had an amazing effect on the book club scene in Ireland with his Radio 1 Tubridy Book Club – kicking off with Truman Capote’s brilliant Breakfast at Tiffany’s, it galvanised listeners into action to read and discuss books they had never considered before.
You may think that you don’t have time for a book club, but not all book clubs meet weekly, and not all meet physically! Here we detail online book clubs and hope soon to have a list of ‘physical’ book clubs running in your area. Many libraries also run book clubs – here you can find your local branch and contact them to find out when and where their club meets.
And if you are already in a book club, have you considered reading an eBook? Find out how to read eBooks with advice here from Sally Clements, a writer published in eBook and print formats.
