Five Things to Discuss at Your November Book Club Meeting

November book club

The main topic of discussion at your November book club meeting will definitely be the exciting new release your group read. At Bookish, we like to start and end our meetings with a bit of general bookish chatter! Here are five things to discuss during your November book club meeting.


The author you’re most thankful for
As the holidays approach, many of us are reflecting on what makes us feel grateful. Kick off your meeting by asking your members to each share an author that they’re thankful for.


The book that made you a reader
Speaking of being thankful, it’s the perfect time to look back on the books that first sparked your passion for literature. Ask your book club members to share the books that turned them into lifelong bookworms.


The best books you read this year
With the holidays fast approaching, there’s a good chance your book club may be taking a break until the new year. Before you part ways, find out which books stand out in the minds of your club as being the best they read in 2019, whether as a group or individually!


Your 2019 reading goals
2020 is around the corner, but before you start planning your new reading goals, take a moment to check your progress on any goals made for 2019. Ask your members if they’ve met their reading goals for 2019, see if anyone needs help completing theirs, and brainstorm ideas for 2020 goals and resolutions!


Holiday plans
Is your group taking a short hiatus for the holidays? Take a look at our tips for how to handle the break. Or perhaps you’re hosting a party? Are you meeting one final time and swapping gifts? We’ve got you covered with gift ideas! No matter what your plans are, take a few minutes at your November meeting to talk with your group about the agenda.


Look into the future
Ask your members if there’s anything they’d like to change about the club. This is a great time of year to consider changing your meeting structure, book selection process, the group’s focus, and more!
