Book Club Chatter
So here is my question for you this week:
Does your book group have an open membership that allows new people to join every month, or do you follow a set of guidelines before allowing a new member to join?
My Answer: My book club does not have an open membership. About a year ago we decided that we really like the size of our group now. We have about nine ladies that meet on a regular basis, of course we do not have perfect attendance every month, but we usually do have a good turnout. We feel that the size of our group is big enough to make for interesting discussions but small enough to keep it personal for all of us. We decided that if someone really is interested in joining our group that we will discuss it and make a decision together. We hope that this will allow us to be sure that the new member would be a good fit for our group. I think that all groups are different and it is good to know that the ladies you are meeting with enjoy reading the same types of books and have similar interests outside of reading.
