Archives - Reading Group Guides Newsletter

There’s lots to share in this late-month update, so let’s get right to it!

Last Wednesday night, we hosted our latest "Bookaccino Live" Book Group event. Our guest was Miranda Cowley Heller, and we had a wonderful conversation about her debut novel, THE PAPER PALACE, which is now out in paperback. It was an instant New York Times bestseller, a Barnes & Noble Book Club pick, a Reese’s Book Club pick, and a Bets On selection when it released in hardcover last year.

We appreciate all of you who shared your thoughts on how your group organizes in our recent survey.

64% of you email each other, while 30.5% of you just decide what you are reading, and when you are getting together next, while you are in your meeting. 10% have a Facebook page for organizing, while 8% have a library coordinating for them. 7% just call each other. A number of you mentioned what I am calling an “Annual Selection,” where you select all the books in advance, as well as your meeting times, and then there are no logistics to figure out. Bravo on that!
