So, you’ve decided to go on the exciting journey of hosting a book club, but you’re unsure where to start. Fear not! We’ve got you covered with this ultimate guide to hosting engaging literary discussions that will excite your book club.

Begin your book club meetings with a fun icebreaker activity to get everyone comfortable and chatting. Try “Two Truths and a Lie: Literary Edition,” where members share quirky book-related facts, and others guess which one is the falsehood.
