    You have a passion for a particular book/series, and you get a klub to discuss it.  Done.

    Generally, online or in person book klubs work the same way.  A group of people interested in a particular book get together to read it, discuss things like character development, plot, etc.  Specific thought provoking questions may be asked by the leader or the group.  Our book klubs work much the same way whether led by a KindleBoards member or by one of our authors.

    I hope this answers your question!  You are certainly welcome to browse any of the past klubs to see the kind of discussions that took place.

    The original book clubs were used as social networks also before the internet came about. It was a way for people to meet one another with something they had in common, the book

    Is anyone still actively doing this? The topics look fairly exhausted. I would love to start one for my suspense novel THE SKULL RING that debuts March 1 id anyone is interested. Heck, I'm here practically every day anyway!

    Thanks,

    Betsy is the mod in charge of Book Klubs.  Send her a PM and tell her you're interested in doing something with your book.  She'll guide you in the right direction.

    I like the idea of the klub, it's just that extraneous 'K' that gets to me.

    It's because this Kindleboards so it has to be a Book Klub.  ;D
