Super Fab Book Club Names

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
-- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

I’m sure there are plenty of book clubs with ordinary names and plenty with no names at all and while I am sure they are just as sweet smelling I can’t help but love a fun book club name with a great back story. Check out these great groups and the origins of their names:

The Bitchin’ Wives Book Club - Ozark, MO
Andrea M. Miller says: “We are a group of fabulous girls knocking on the door of 30. We all have husbands and children and love them dearly but don’t want to be defined by just that role (part of the reason for forming the club). We are each unique and crafty. And finally…..every time I say the name I have to smile!”

Cracked Pots – Blufton, SC
Mary Gade explains the name this way: “We had read The Cracked Water Jug story one day in the meeting and felt it was a good name for us. Each of us has our own unique flaws but felt we could each contribute something to make our world a better place to live.”

Beyond Twilight Book Club - Muskegon, MI
Lisa Johnson says: “We are a fun group of 9…moms, teachers, homemakers, etc…who met on Facebook. We mostly knew each other through our kids' school or our neighborhood, but not all of us were "friends". One day I randomly sent out a "Flair" that said something about my love for Twilight. I wanted to see if I was alone…and I wasn't! So this led to a lot of chatting with these random girls, which led to a movie get-together for the premiere, which led to our discussing books and wanting to get together more. And thus, the Beyond Twilight Book Club (BTBC) was born! It has now become a book/dancing club but we always discuss the books before we dance ;)”

Don't you just love the idea of a dancing book club? These book clubs are just the tip of the iceberg. Look for more interesting, thought provoking and just plain entertaining names to come. Got a great name? You can still get in on the action. Just shoot me an email: dana@bookreporter.com.
