Reading Between the Lines

Now that all the holidays (except for Super Bowl Sunday, of course) are past, it is time to get back to reading.  But reading can be a solitary endeavor and winter is a solitary time, so how to get yourself out of the house more?  Join a book club.

I am thinking about sponsored clubs that are open to anyone. A quick rundown of the ones I found this week:

Dominican University Book Club. There is a meeting this week, 01-25-11 at 7 PM in Lewis Hall. For more info:

Genre X Book Discussion Group is open to readers who are 20-30 years old. They meet the 4th Tuesday of the month at 8 PM at Molly Malones. Contact:

Mystery Book Club at Centuries & Sleuths Book Store. Next meeting is 2-19-11 at 2PM at the store. Contact:

History Book Club at Centuries & Sleuths.  Next meeting is 01-30-11 at 2 PM at the store. Contact:

Adults Who Love Young Adult Books. First meeting is 02-10-11 at 7 PM at The Magic Tree Book Store. Contact:

Indie Book Club is forming.  First meeting is in March 2011 at The Magic Tree. Contact:

Happy reading!

Helen: I love your blog. Just wanted to add another book club to the list. As you probably know, Barbara's Book Store had a book club before it closed. But what many don't know is that this book club continues on. We meet monthly in members' homes. Thanks for your wonderful blog, Helen.
