Hello:

Prepare a set of questions and distribute them to each member BEFORE you read the next book. Ask that your members keep the questions in mind while reading the book.

In order to set out the questions, a member would have had to preread the book.

When you meet, you will have common ground for your discussion.

Your questions should deal with theme, language, characterization and setting. Make sure these elements are backed up with direct quotes from the book. Have someone take a contrarian view, at times. It will enliven the discussion.

Regards,

Bookworm

I started a book club last year and its going fairly well. However I am beginning to detect a decline in interest/enthusiasm from the members. Do you have suggestions about how I could make the meetings more interesting and exciting?
