After the Book Club

5 Jun

I belong to an adult book club, made up of mostly librarians. I missed last night’s June meeting and the flurry that happens at the end. That’s where we decide which books we  will read for next month. Yes, I said books because we only read children’s and YA books. It is the best book club ever!

We usually choose about 10-12 books a month, a mix of picture books, longer fiction, non fiction and graphic novels. As we make each decision, phones are out and holds are placed at libraries.

Because I missed last night’s meeting, I didn’t see the list until I checked my email this morning. Before I began writing this post, my holds had been placed. All is well with the world.

Here is our July reading list(with links to my local library system):

Shorter Fiction:

Longer Fiction:

Nonfiction

Graphic Novel

Upcoming

    What a great list! I love a good list of books. It is strangely satisfying

    I’m betting that you will love Joyce Sidman’s The Girl Who Drew Butterflies. It’s a stunning, well-researched biography about a little-known, but very important, woman!

    Now that’s a great book club! What a list! Now I need to place some holds at my library. 🙂

    Wonderful list of books! Many of these are on my TBR list as well. I’m impressed that you meet monthly and read so many books! Does everyone try to read all the books or do people usually pick and choose?

      We all read what we can. Few people ever read all of them. If too few have read a book, or we’ve had trouble getting it from the library, we will roll it over to the next month.

    We too have a book club. Usually we read whatever we like and then talk about them in our meeting. We meet once a month. Last meeting we talked about poetry. Do you have to read all the books or any from them ? We will try this next time 🙂 It will be interesting to see how each of react to a book. Thank you very much.

    Sounds like a great book club for librarians! (And teachers!) I’d hate to miss a meeting.

    Sounds like a perfect book club for librarians. Does each member suggest a book or is there a list from which books are chosen?

      Anyone present can chime in on suggestions.

    This idea sounds like a nifty way to give one’s reading life a boost, especially for people working with young, aspiring readers. Confession: “Adult book club” doesn’t mean what I first thought it meant 😉

      I thought that as I typed the words and decided it might be a hook to keep readers reading.
