Book Group Links

Here are a few Web sites that offer support for people interested in starting a book club, or keeping one going. 

Book Clubs Resource.com has information on running a book club, as well as links to reading guides and other resources.

Reading Group Choices recommends discussible books, and also has author interviews and book club tips. Every year it publishes a printed guide called “Reading Group Choices.”

Reading Group Guides bills itself as “the online community for reading groups” and provides guides that include discussion questions, author biographies, excerpts, and more. The guides can be searched by a number of categories, including Most Requested. There are also tips for starting and running a book club. Reading groups can register on the site by creating a profile.

  1. Though it’s not quite the same as a traditional book group, and the site is fairly bare-bones, some folks may be interested in a list I keep of college common reading programs. It’s far from complete – I rely on self-reporting for information – but I try to track who’s reading what.
