Perhaps you’d been meaning to join a book club this year … but before you could find one, the world began social distancing.
Or maybe you’ve been in clubs in the past but never cared for the structure of choosing just one book.
Or, quite possibly, you need just a dash of social time to augment what you’re already receiving.
In any of those cases, you’re in luck: the Silent Book Clubs that were launched nearly a decade ago are thriving in this era of social distancing.
These clubs, traditionally, met in public but mostly let the members read whatever book they wanted in peace, before they spent time just chatting about what they were reading.
Now, rather than a bar or restaurant, they meet on Zoom, but with the same minimal structure as before.
