Did you know that local book groups are one of the best ways to get people talking about your books? It is essential that you engage more in book clubs. Local book groups, however, can sometimes be hard to find. Not to worry, I will be directing you just in the right places to find your local book groups. Even better, the book groups below will cover all of your target audiences, from online to the traditional meet and greet. Join me, and let’s get you started.
1. Google search
If you don’t already know, Google is a lifesaver. Say, for example, you need to know about London Book Groups, all you need to do is open the Google site on your web browser. On the search tab, type in London Book Groups/Clubs. A list of endless possible results will show. Scan through to see which book groups interest you. The good news is; Google will provide you with information on their exact locations, and business hours.
2. Local Libraries
Local Libraries are an excellent choice for finding book groups. Here you will find an enthusiastic community brought together by books. Not to just read them individually but to expound and detail the contents together. Wouldn’t it be fulfilling to have your book among those to be read in your local library? Why not add that in your to-do list now? Great.
Meetup is a website that brings together communities. Visit https://www.meetup.com/topics/bookclub/ and on the search icon type in book clubs. The search results will provide you with a list of not only local book groups but also the well-known book groups. The one thing I find advantageous with meetup is the fact that you can start your group and bring together people you would like to invite for a book group, and it’s all very secure. Try it now, and thank me later.
Those book stores that we think they only sell books sometimes will be able to advise you if there are any book clubs near you. From time to time, they may even run one themselves. They will provide you with details of the book clubs they host.
5. Local Government Websites
Some local government websites will provide information about local book clubs. It is in line with their support of community activities. Find your local government website and get information on book groups that would interest you.
