Format

When you think book clubs, you think about a bunch of people meeting in a library on the same date and time. But with today’s technology, and everyone’s busy schedule, you can use things like Facebook, Twitter, Skyper and Google Hangouts to host book discussions in unconventional ways. And with these technologies, you can sometimes even get authors to participate without a lot of cost or travel.
