Consider some questions like how often and where your book club will meet. When and how do you choose the books? Will you have one person facilitate the questions or will you rotate between members? What about food and drinks or a movie screening to tie it all together? Will you vote on each book or let a member choose the next book? Now send out your invites and get reading!
