You don't have to be a talk show host to have a group that keeps everybody
reading! You're no idiot, of course. You know that people across the nation are
getting together, swapping ideas, and sharing their love of literature. You also
know how enjoyable it is when you and a friend have read the same book and spend
hours discussing it. But when it comes to actually starting or joining a reading
group, you feel like you can't tell a metaphor from a simile.
Don't go on reading in solitude! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Starting a Reading Group is every book lover's guide to putting together a group and having successful discussions -- or knowing where to find an existing group. In the Complete Idiot's Guide, you get:
Part 1: Reading Groups: Singles Bars for the Next Century
Part 2: Behold, the Beauty of Discussion
Part 3: Have We Got the Group for You
Part 4: Tailoring Your Group Like a Fine Suit
Part 5: My Group Wants to Party All the Time
