Book Club Boasting

If you follow Bear Pond Books’s lead, here’s the next step to take once you’ve compiled and posted the reading history of your various book clubs: let the reading world know about it. The most difficult part of this will be remembering to update the list with this month’s read. Take 300 seconds and set up a recurring reminder in your calendar or task master for each book club. Or set up a monthly reminder and update all of the lists at once.

And here’s an extra promotional tip. When you have compiled a reading history of one of your book clubs, take a photo of a few stacks of books and share it with a link to the list through social media. “We’ve read 156 books since we started our Books & Whatnot bookclub in 2001. How many of these have you read?”
