Booking through Thursday

On Booking through Thursday the following is being discussed --------
A combo of two suggestions by: Heidi and by litlove

Have you ever been a member of a book club? How did your group choose (ot, if you haven’t been, what do you think is the best way to choose) the next book and who would lead discussion?

Do you feel more or less likely to appreciate books if you are obliged to read them for book groups rather than choosing them of your own free will? Does knowing they are going to be read as part of a group affect the reading experience?


My answers are, I have never been a member of a book club. Regarding the choice of book and leader I would have thought that everyone should take a turn .The person that chooses the book leads the discussion in the next meeting.
I don't feel it would enhance my reading. In fact I really like to choose my own books , not sure I'd enjoy being told what to read. On the other hand perhaps I am missing some great reads through my fairly narrow choices.
