Love the New Yorker. Thanks for letting us know about this!


Thanks for letting us know - how do you register for the book club? I didn't see any place to sign up... Thanks!


You're right, it's not clear. I have asked my friend at the NYer to clarify.

Hi Jen,
I too went to the New Yorker to register for the book club and I don't see a link in order to do so, glad to see others have shared the same


FINALLY a book club I want to be a part of! I also went to check out the site but am a bit confused. I'm also going to try looking at Meetup, who seem to have a few great groups for avid readers like myself.

And from fellow book clubbers....have any of you ever tried renting books for your groups? I've been pondering joining this site that says they're the Netflix of books...BookSwim, and I read a ton so I'm thinking of trying out a 2 or 3 book-per-month deal.

On top of THAT, where have been some good places in NYC that you've tried for hosting the club? A friend of mine says there's even a few spots in Brooklyn, but I'm not sure everyone will trek out there.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
