The Book Club Health Check

Even in the strongest book clubs, conflicts are likely to emerge at some point and, according to new research conducted by BookBrowse, how a book group proactively deals with them is a key factor to the group's long-term happiness.

In their just-published "Book Club Health Check," - well-established as a leader in book club research and featured in media including BBC Radio, The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, American Library Association and Shelf Awareness - looks at how book clubs can prevent their group from stagnating and avoid unexpressed tensions from reaching a breaking point, and provides a template for members to use to discuss issues, both logistical and interpersonal, in their book club.

It is available at and is summarized in a free, downloadable one-page PDF.

The "Book Club Health Check" was compiled from BookBrowse's comprehensive research report, The Inner Lives of Book Clubs (based on two surveys of more than 5000 book club participants). More information at, with complimentary copies available to members of the media.
