This week’s episode of Books on the Nightstand has some excellent book club suggestions. My favorite was that the person who is choosing the book must have read it first. Not only does this guarantee a good choice, but it also provides the person choosing the time to do any additional research on the author or topic, in order to promote conversation and become a quasi-expert on the book (also a suggestion from the podcast).
I will be proposing this suggestion to my own book club. Ironically, it is one that I have unintentionally adhered to since our book club began.
