When you ADD BOOK, a cover image of your book selection is automatically loaded onto your group book archive but to have it appear on your group home page it must be linked to an event on your calendar. For your convenience these pages follow one another automatically.  In addition, the links to buy online through one of our affiliate partners are listed under the book image. This ensures that all members purchase the same edition or translation. Some online vendors also offer discounts to group referrals and free delivery with minimum purchase. Take advantage of this by having one person order all the books for your group and having it delivered to the meeting preceding the discussion where they can be handed out to each member who reimburses the payer.


On the ADD BOOK page, fill in either the book title or the author to search our databases. When you find your book, select it and click continue. You are automatically taken to an ADD EVENT page to schedule an event connected to this book. (This can be a book group discussion, an author signing at a local book store, or a radio interview that you want everyone to know about.) On the ADD EVENT page the book is automatically loaded into your book selection pull-down menu. The book is also automatically loaded into your BOOK ARCHIVES.


Once you have completed the ADD EVENT page, you are automatically taken to a COMMUNICATE page to e-mail your group to inform them them about this new event. You can skip this page by clicking on group home page on the bottom menu. You can always come back to the site and click on COMMUNICATE to e-mail your group members.


Please note, sometimes it may take a few minutes for the image to load onto your group home page. Clicking the refresh button on your browser toolbar often helps. If the book image fails to appear after 10 minutes or when you return to the site at a later time, please e-mail us at
