The Book Blogger Hop is a meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week, a new book-themed question is posted, and this week’s question is…
How many book clubs do you belong in? If you do belong to an in-person book club, do you have meetings in the day or evening? Do you meet at someone’s house or meet at a local restaurant or coffee house?
I don’t think I’ve ever participated in a book club. I like the idea of reading the same book with a bunch of people, particularly for the discussions, but it also kind of feels like a chore to me, having to read a certain portion of the book by a certain day. It does suck not having someone else to talk to about what I’m reading, but I prefer reading at my own pace and picking out my own books to read next rather than having to read what the group wants to read.
Of course, I love it when I read a book that a friend recommended, or they read one I recommended, or we just happen to have read the same book, because I don’t normally have many people to talk to about books (except in the blogging world, of course). But I don’t normally go out of my way to read a book along with a group of readers. I like doing my own thing.
