I really am enjoying Book Clubs on Facebook! I set up a book club for historical fiction called Historical Fiction Lovers and our first novel is going to be Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. One of my high school classmates suggested it a few months ago. I’ve been to Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Fallingwater near Ohiopyle, PA, but I had no idea that he was involved in a scandalous affair while working on a house in Grand Rapids, MI – my hometown! This makes me even more excited to read this novel.
What’s nice about having the book club on this application is that it allows for a wall like your Facebook profile, has a discussion board, and has a neat built in discussion guide form that each member can fill out. Based on everyone’s responses, you can really start some great conversations. I definitely like this more than just a stand alone forum. I think you will, too.
So far, ten people have signed up, but there’s always room for more! We’re going to begin our discussion on January 5th. If you’d be interested in joining us, here is a link to the club. You do need to be a member of Facebook, but it takes just seconds to join. I’d love to have you. If historical fiction isn’t your thing (for shame!), there are currently 52 other book clubs. Best of all, you can always add your own.
