Need more information? Here are answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a “book club kit”?

  • A kit contains information about a work of fiction or non-fiction including discussion questions, author information, historical context, bookmarks, warm-up activities, interesting links, menu ideas, recommended reading, and anything else that might add to the enjoyment of your book club.
  • Many customers prefer to forward the kit to every member of their book club so members can use the information as they are reading the work.
  • Plus, most people in book clubs are busy, busy, busy! It can be hard enough to find the time to read the work, nevermind prepare for the discussion. So, let me do the work for you — I will make sure you have everything you need in order to have the best book club experience possible. Past customers have particularly liked the menu suggestions and warm-up ideas, too. Most of my customers have come back for more! Here are a couple of reasons past customers have been satisfied:

I am excited to have found your website. In the past, we have used reading group guides, but have found most lacking, containing a few questions and little else.

It inspired us to to talk longer — and more deeply — about the book.

The group really loves it. It helps to organize the discussion, especially since we have a number of ‘talkers.’
