Improve your book group!

I absolutely loved this book on book groups. A friend of mine recommended it because I was complaining that our book group had gotten a little dull after 7 years. Now, we have reinvigorated our group with the help of this book. Every book group needs to read this book. Ellen Moore and Kira Stevens are absolutely brilliant and incredibly funny.

Good Books Lately: The One-Stop Resource for Book Groups

I've never read another book like "Good Books Lately: The One-Stop Resource for Book Groups and Other Greedy Readers." It's clever and smart without being condescending. Completely accessible! The book is a blend of history, anecdote and How-To. Whether you're in a book club, or just an avid reader on your own, this book is helpful. It gives great tips on being a more active reader and participant in discussion of books. I had the good fortune of attending a reading of this book by the authors, Kira Stevens and Ellen Moore, and they are even more charming and clever in person! I was in tears with laughter listening to their encounter with Oprah - very funny stuff! Don't worry, the Oprah story is in the book, so you can get a good laugh too!

WHY IN THE WORLD

"Why in the world would anybody write an entire book about bookgroups" was my thinking when I picked this book up to skim. I was very surprised at how well-written and interesting this book is, and couldn't resist reading on and on and on. These two women are obviously the experts on bookgroups and have a delightful way of presenting a plethora of information about all aspects of bookgroups. With solid tips on starting the group, choosing the books, understanding the plots and characters, anticipating and troubleshooting problems, the authors created a thoroughly enjoyable and informative guide instead of the pedantic and dull one I expected. They offer great tools for sparking lively debates as well as for negotiating through problems of personalities in the group. They even provide a great list of titles of recommended books.I went to their website for more recommended books after reading this fun, practical and highly useful guide. This is a resource I am thrilled I stumbled upon.

Good Books Lately is a joy to read

Good Books Lately is a joy to read--Kira Stevens and Ellen Moore have written a fun, informative and practical guide to everything you'd want to know about book groups. From tracing book groups back to sewing circles and salons to the day they met Oprah (yes, we're envious), Moore and Stevens give book groups the respect they deserve. The funny asides and anecdotes (like the Book Group Hall of Shame) make this such a personable and friendly guide. And the practical sections of the book are so comprehensive, intelligent and insightful, I know I'll be going back again and again to Good Books Lately--from choosing the book to discussing it, I feel I'll be a much better book group member now!
