Historical Fiction Lovers Book Club

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.

  1. Hey Jenn,

    I just signed up and left a comment over at the FB bc. Thanks for starting it. I’m looking forward to our upcoming reads.
    Thanks for joining, Marcia!!!! I’m really looking forward to it. I’m starting Loving Frank this weekend.

  2. Thanks for posting about this! I obviously haven’t been paying attention!
    Marg, I hope you join. I’m really having fun with this. It’s definitely my new favorite thing.

  3. BookBlogs?! Why don’t u join there?!
    I don’t want to have an account on Facebook 🙂
    and I am selfishly asking u 🙂 🙂

    I lOVE Historical Fiction 😉
    I haven’t really spent enough time on Book Blogs. I’ll have to check that out, too.

  4. I’m glad you posted this! I’ll certainly take a look. It seems that since I’ve whittled my challenges down to 2, I’m undo-ing any good by signing up for book clubs, ha ha.

    Go figure!
    Please join us, Michele! I’m trying to get rid of my ARCs, but I’m signed up for three challenges next year. Why not a book club, too? 😉 You just have to convince the rest of the group to select a book that will kill two or three birds with one stone. 🙂

  5. What an awesome feature…yet another one that I had no idea existed. Thanks for calling my attention to it.

    I would love to join a historical fiction club, but I will have to skip this first book…is that allowed?!
    Allowed? Of course! I’ve got other discussions going on that aren’t directly related to the book we’re reading for January. Join any time and contribute as often as you’d like. We’ll have to pick February’s book soon and I’d love to have as many people as possible make suggestions.

  6. Sounds fun, Jennifer. I don’t have a Facebook account and am pretty bad about keeping up with my MySpace account BUT I know tons more people on Facebook that MySpace, so maybe I’ll do Facebook one of these days. I do want to read that book, and know someone who owns it, so I could borrow it anytime.
