Crazy for books and book clubs?

You’re not alone! The popularity of book clubs is soaring.
“The Encyclopedia of Community: From the Village to the Virtual World, notes that in 2003, a Google search for “book club” returned 424,000 hits; now it returns 40 million…”
What was once a solo act—sitting in a chair reading a book—has now become a social event. That chair is now replaced with a sofa which seats not one—but many avid readers all on the same page.
Enter: The Book Club.
A book club meeting is an exceptional way for people to connect—since each guest must read the same book to attend, there is common ground, an instant ice breaker—therefore a book club can often become a springboard for strangers to become fast friends.
If you are a single woman and seeking, the advantages of a book club stack up, it’s a top-notch, easy, and organic way to meet well-read men.
In other words, a “Book Club” can become “Book Clubbing”—the main difference being that club wear such as stiletto heels are swapped for something, shall we say, a tad more suitable to the occasion—like kitten heels.
Through my following fun and easy tips an ordinary book club meeting is transformed into an interactive “Singles’ Book Night.” When you host this “Singles’ Book Night” it’s not an ongoing, full-fledged book ‘club’ it’s a one-time, fun event.
This novel night includes built-in conversation starters beyond the discussion of the book selection, which spring from the playful nature and visuals of the book-friendly ideas I give you, after all who isn’t going to speak to the person beside them when they reach for a Bookworm Cupcake!

*Read Between The Lines: In your invitation to your coterie of single, available friends, whether by email, phone or mail—make sure to place emphasis on that it’s a one-night-only Singles’ Book Night. Name the title and author of the book that each guest must read before the date of the event, so they will be ready to join in on the night’s book discussion—this theme has a very persuasive hook to reel single bookworms in.
*Food For Thought: If you don’t have any single, available male friends to draw from, then enlist one of my favorite home-entertaining tools, the ‘friend-of-a-friend’ model—in the invitation ask each of the single, available female friends you are inviting to bring a single, available male friend—making it a requirement to attend.
