Book group format

When our group meets, we all just chip in with our comments. Sometimes we look at reviews from the internet and sometimes we have a list of questions which we consider at random. I'm amazed at how frequently our views coincide. I'd be interested to know how your group works, in particular, does one person lead the discussion and also do you go with a ready set of questions?

Book Group

We all start by saying whether we enjoyed the book and conversation just seems to flow from those intial comments.We stick to 1 1/2 hours in the afternoons and although quite informal works well for us . We are a small group about 6-8 ladies .I am the youngest and I have my bus pass !!!

Book Group

We also start by saying whether we enjoyed the book or not and it goes from there. We limit it to 2 hours in the afternoon as one of our members has a disabled husband and can't leave him any longer. We keep the membership to 9 so it is comfortable in members homes. It is unusual for us all be there at once though as we are all retired and travel quite a bit. Sometimes it turns into more of a gossip if we haven't enjoyed the book much! Cx

Book Group

We're also a small group (7-9) and usually two or three have an associated passage or book to quote which is relevant to the book we're actually reading. It all adds to our happy evening! We go round the group saying if we enjoyed it or not, and it's amazing how people can loathe or love it - this leads on to good discussions. I'm sorry to say we're not a very deep-thinking or literary lot, but we have a good time.

Format

We meet monthly - eight of us - and whoever hosts the evening chooses the next book. Sometimes they'll present it as a fait accompli but we'll also take along suggestions. We discuss the book in turn - when we had a free for all some people felt they didn't get a turn! We even had a literary weekend away last year in Bath and are discussing where our next one will be.
