The Book Club Companion by Diana Loevy (2006)

Description: (From back of book) The Book Club Companion is full of innovative ideas to help you share your love of books – not only enriching your reading experiences, but strengthening friendships (and forming new ones). An active member of several book clubs herself, as well as a renowned publishing professional, Diana Loevy offers fun and witty suggestions for first-time members, hosts, and groups looking to spice up their meetings…

Review: Personally, I didn’t think this book was that great. It was not really organized that well. There were bursts of random information all throughout the book. I didn’t enjoy reading it. Yes, there were some useful tips in it. The lists of books she gave were just that… lists. I could just go to a bookstore and pick those books off a shelf by looking. It wasn’t really that inspired. Many of them were your typical book club selections anyway. If you are new to the book club scene, this book may be helpful, but all in all, I would stay away from it.

Score: 3 out of 5
