QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
Are you in a book club? How does your book club choose books? How far in advance do you choose?
I am actually in three book clubs. I will talk about the one I have been in the longest. :)
We had problems taking up too much time choosing a book so here is what we did and what we now do.
1. Each member submitted as many books as she wanted for suggested reading choices.
2. The lists were typed into an Excel file and assigned a number.
3. At the end of each meeting, we choose a number from a "baggie."
4. The number that is chosen is the book for the next month.
This works out perfectly for everyone, and no time is wasted for thinking of a book.
We do veer from this when a member has won books for us, and we have had a few members including me win books for members.
As for how far in advance, we choose books for the next two months.
Looking forward to some unique ideas that may be a good change all of my book clubs can make.
