I learned about The Silent Book Club yesterday evening through the ChitChat Forum on Bookcrossing when another Bookcrosser wrote about their experience participating in a Silent Book Club Meet-Up over the weekend.
The Silent Book Club sounds delightful!! So, I thought I'd take a look at their website and make a post about it here on my book blog for other readers to discover.
I learned the following information about The Silent Book Club from their website:
Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends reading in companionable silence at our neighborhood bar. We loved books, and reading with friends, but most of our previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out.
Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?
We started Silent Book Club because reading with friends is awesome. We love hearing about what people are reading (often in their other book clubs) and we think it's important to put down our phones and be social. Real, live, breathing-the-same-air social, not hearting-you-on-Instagram social.Have you heard about The Silent Book Club before? Is this a book club you'd consider participating in? If you have attended a Silent Book Club meet up, please share your experience below in the comment section.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
