Joining a book club is a great way to expand both your social circle and reading horizons. Choosing a book you’re going to read together should be an enjoyable process where everyone gets a say. It usually starts with each book club member suggesting a few books before taking a vote, and we’re here to help you make your own suggestions.

Reading List

It’s likely you already have a list of books you want to read, so start from there when picking your suggestions. There are probably books you’re dying to read that the other book club members will embrace with open arms.

Consider Reviews

Don’t judge the book by its cover but by its online reviews. Pay attention to reviews shared by other book lovers to make sure you’re making a good selection.

Length & Complexity

If the book you want to suggest is too long and complex, consider reading it in your own time because it won’t necessarily fit the group’s reading pace and preferences.

Availability Comes First

There’s no point in suggesting a book that book club members can’t find with ease. Make sure that it’s available at local libraries, bookstores, or in e-book format, depending on your reading preferences and budget.
