The Various Types Of Book Clubs

By Guest Author On December 22, 2010 Under Setting Goals

“Different strokes for different folks. In other words, human as we are, all of us differ in the things that we like including interests, hobbies and others. There are those who would love to spend their free time dancing or swimming with friends or family. A few may want to bake and experiement with different recipes while there are others who read books for pleasure.

People who like to read their days away also tend to like joining book clubs, but again, not all of them have the same type of books that they want to read. This is possibly why many book clubs are emerging so that all who love books may be able to join one. If you’re a bookworm yourself, take a look at the different book club specialties which you or anyone in the family may fancy exploring:

1. Children’s Book Club

These are organizations or clubs for children between 8-12 years old. The main goal of these clubs is to develop a child’s interest in reading and for him to gain more knowledge. Naturally, the members of these clubs can be able to socialize with each other, thus, new relationships are built. Nevertheless, children who are members of these clubs willl have the opportunity to develop their skills to better express themselves more.

2.Celebrity Endorsement

These are clubs that seek advice from celebrities on what books to read. Readers may comment and create and participate in forums about the book. A famous example of this is Oprah’s Online Book Club.

3. Poetry

In essence, this won’t qualify as a book club but it can still be considered one. The members of this club are into reading poems and they have the chance to share their thoughts about it with their fellow members.

4. Science Fiction

Members of these book clubs are usually interested in advanced science literature and love reading sci-fi books. There are science fiction book clubs for both adults and children. Children who are members of sci-fi book clubs will definitely enjoy their membership if they are into learning about invetions and other things related to science.

One can easily join any of these book clubs easily. You can check online and choose from a great array of clubs from the Literary Guild to Doubleday Book Club and others which you may find interesting. It is important, though, to join a group that you’re most interested in. Otherwise, you could be defeating the whole purpose of joining. After all, book clubs are there to develop and cultivate their members’ love for books, regardless of the genre. But then again, this can give you the chance to explore your other interests.

The list goes on for online book clubs you may want to join. The The Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club are two others you may want to be a member of. Get to know them all and try to find the one that fits your personality and interests the most.
