Are you in a book club? Are you thinking of joining one or even starting one up? Well here’s some good news – book clubs are good for you and here’s why:
Book clubs offer an affordable way to connect with others. Socialization helps sharpen your memory and cognitive skills, which leads to an increase in your sense of happiness and well-being.
It forces you to read
And I mean that in a good way. In today’s busy world, it can be hard to find time for ourselves. Being in a book club forces you to put everything aside and just read and relax.
Broaden your horizons
Book clubs read a wide variety of books so if you’re stuck in a reading rut or don’t know what to read next, look no further, a book club can open you up to a whole new world of books.
Hear new perspectives
You can enjoy healthy, respectful debates about a variety of issues in a book club. Hearing other readers’ perspectives on social issues and everyday topics might change your own opinions - or theirs.
Share your love of books
You get to talk about books! Whether your gushing over a book or ranting about it, your fellow book clubbers will be all ears.
