Hi everyone, it’s Tasha, Goblin Court Sorceress and avid book lover!
I do a lot of reading, everything from researching ancient spells and legends to the latest Farthingdale Elf Poetry Review. No matter what realm you live in, everyone loves a good book! And if you’re like me, you want to talk about your reading experience with your friends. Having a Book Club party is a great way to share your thoughts, explore your imagination, and discover different points of view. And enjoy great snacks.
To get the fun started, follow these steps, and you’ll be ready to have your first Book Club party!
- Ask your friends if they’d like to be part of your Book Club.
- Decide which book you’re going to discuss, and make sure everyone has enough time to finish reading before you meet.
- Choose a time and place to meet – be sure everyone has their parents’ permission!
- Bring snacks!
You’re ready for your first meeting! To get your first party started, I’ve written some questions for Circles in the Stream (there are links to the questions at the bottom of this page.) Check back each month for a new Avalon book. But don’t stop there! You can use any book that you like for the club.
Adding your own unique touch makes your Book Club even more fun. Here are a few suggestions:
- Write your own questions.
- Draw a picture inspired by a scene or character in the book.
- Pick your favorite scene and explain why you like it.
- Look up words you don’t know and make a vocabulary list to share with the rest of your Book Club.
- Write a poem, song, or short story inspired by something you’ve read.
- Come up with a cool name for your Book Club.
Follow these guidelines to have a great Book Club meeting:
- Make sure everyone has a chance to speak.
- Be a good listener.
- There is no right or wrong answer to the questions. Some of the best discussions happen when Book Club members have different opinions!
- Don’t be afraid to express yourself.
- Remember to bring your book.
And here’s one last tip: wait until you’ve read the book before looking at the discussion questions, or some story surprises might be spoiled.
Have fun, and remember, reading is magic!
