Joining a book club is a great way to expand your mind and meet people with similar interests. Book clubs allow you to share your ideas, have open discussions, and connect with others around the world. Some are free to join and others require a subscription. Many host interviews and Q&A sessions with the author so you can dive deep into each book. Different book clubs have different focuses and and cater to specific audiences, so we recommend thinking about what you want (local chapters, interactive discussions, POC or queer authors, etc.) and then taking a look at what each has to offer. You can join a number of free book clubs, then decide which ones you enjoy the most.
