The Inner Lives of Book Clubs: New Research Offers Surprising Insights!

We are pleased to announce the publication of "The Inner Lives of Book Clubs."

This fascinating report is the first to really get to the heart of the book club experience. It's the result of two surveys of more than 5,000 people, combined with BookBrowse's more than 15 years of book club experience and research.

Its 56-pages are packed with interesting and usable information that is relevant to librarians, authors, publishers, booksellers and, of course, book clubs.

Among much else, you will discover:

  • The attributes most successful book groups share.
  • The demographics of public book clubs compared to private groups.
  • What people want from their book club.
  • The elements book clubs look for when picking books.
  • What book clubbers think of their groups.
  • The 12 most common book club challenges, and how groups resolve them.
  • The link between discussion length and happiness.
  • The perceptions non-book clubbers have of them.
  • What people interested in a book club but not in one want from a group
  • What causes people to leave book clubs.

We feature high-quality, well-written books across a range of genres, mainly for adults, with some outstanding YA—books that not only engage and entertain but also deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Our Visitors
Each month, BookBrowse attracts half a million avid readers and buyers of intelligent fiction and narrative nonfiction, particularly book clubbers and those who read to expand their horizons. They visit us looking to find out what’s new, and to explore their specific reading interests. They return to us, and subscribe to our newsletters, because our carefully curated content allows them to bypass the noise of less selective and crowd-sourced sites to easily find the books that are right for them.
