A book for the non reader I don t know many of my pals who would get much out of this It was fun to look through but not as solid of an outline as I d hope But it is divided into different themes and talks about how to start a book club. Nice little resource It took me less than 30 minutes to flip through the whole thing I m surprised this type of book can get published when there is so much like this on line but it was nice and helpful.

Lots of excellent suggestions for a book group how to start, ways to avoid pit falls, suggested themes, titles, extras Good for both starting a book group and refreshing an established one. I bought this book hoping it would suggest books for my already established book club, but A Year of Reading is for book clubs just starting out or for a personal year of reading It did introduce me to some new titles. This book is perfect for book clubs that need direction in choosing a year of books or for anyone that wants to step out of their reading box and find a wide range of books to read The book shares a variety of books to read each month based on a theme like Justice, Families both in fiction and nonfiction, Food, and Classics With each month s theme, there are then five books featured The author gives a brief synopsis of each book, with discussion reflection questions and ways to dig deeper into that topic through another book or research The book opens with ways to enrich your reading life with tips like tracking your reading or keeping a journal Then the end of the book shares tips for starting and running a book club If you are looking to add books in a certain genre or broaden your reading life, this is a great way to find some books that were maybe not on your radar Out of the sixty plus books featured, I added a few books to my reading list and was intrigued by a few others But, as an avid reader, many of the books listed were already ones I was familiar with I think this book is targeted for readers looking for exposure to books or beginning book clubs In that sense, it is a great way to broaden your reading and be exposed to new genres and authors. A good guide for book groups Some good suggestions for books to read and ways to run a book group Great for anyone wanting to start a book group or for bibliophiles who just like suggestions on books to read next I like the organization of the book based on themes throughout the year and added books in case one really likes a particular theme. RATING 2.5 STARS Review Not on Blog It is a pretty cover and nicely put together but not much on the recommending side This is a book for a non reader looking to get into reading, is the best way to put it If you are a reader then the list of 5 books each month is probably a bit useless as you probably have read it or it is already on your list They are popular books so there is nothing new to discover I am not saying that reading 5 or less books a month is bad, just that you only get a list of five to choose from I like variety and selection. A good, but not great book, about choosing books to read as either part of a book club or as a challenge for yourself The authors chose a topic for each month, and then suggested give or do books that fit the category along with discussion questions and interesting tidbits I was hard pressed to find any book to read out of the suggestions for some books, but I ended up finding at least one book for each month that I would like I like books that give suggestions for reading, and I enjoyed this one.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the A Year of Reading book, this is one of the most wanted Elisabeth Ellington author readers around the world.
