This is serendipitous. My own book club just recently switched from a traditional book club format to a salon format. We still plan to read a couple of books together during the year but wanted to take the stress out of required reading. Instead we talk about what we're reading, what we wish we were reading, and what we're looking forward to reading. After just one salon-like meeting, I have to say I'm hooked.

What a great post! Amen and amen.

I love the idea of a salon style book club.. now I just need to find one!


I totally agree with the author on the importance of reading and discussing books. Sometimes we do get a little tired and go for easier activities, such as reality shows, which are way less rewarding.

I tried to leave a comment on the Betsy-Tacy posts you shared on Twitter, but they are closed. LOVED your convention re-cap from 2009 and I will look forward to hearing about this year's. I hope you plan to post about your time there.

I also found this particular post apropos because it talks about sharing our love of books with others through book groups and literary circles, and recommends not neglecting this aspect of things. I'm delighted to have connected with so many B-T fans through posting about our pilgrimage, and it renews my resolution to start a local book group for kid lit fans.

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.
