Book Club

So, have any of you OFF members ever tried a book club where we all read the same book and then dissect/discuss/debate it?

Now I'm burning with curiosity about what sort of books you like. And I'm sure Minx's friend would also like to know.

Re: Book Club

Yes - our village library ran one BC (before Covid) and it was good. Strange how eight people could read the same book and all come up with differing points of view.

Re: Book Club

I have no end of trouble finding books that I can read. I usually abandon them after a couple of chapters.

Why is that, Harbal? Do you favour a particular genre?

Good to see you again, by the way.

For some time now, I've only been able to read books that are funny, but it has to be a certain kind of funny. It's hard to explain what kind of funny. And I prefer books by women, or at least women who are my kind of funny.

Re: Book Club

Yes, Minx, I have tried two times with a book club. So many different focuses on many of the characters, the difference of opinions, and motives, etc....I found when I had to read the book, I couldn't let myself get caught up in it. I was second guessing and trying to look for the answers to questions that were sure to be asked at the meetings.
It took the pleasure out of mentally finding a face for the characters.
It was not for me, but many of my friends look forward to it.
