my journal

Write down your thoughts about books in your own private journal. Make note of good reviews, great insights, and personal comments. Don't forget page numbers so you can read out passages to illustrate your point to the group. Print the page out, pop it in your book, and refer to them at your book group meeting.  You'll be amazed at the improved quality of discussion!  Soon everyone will be following this lead.

 

For your convenience, books added to your group home page are automatically loaded into your book selection pull-down menu. You can always add a new book from this page.

 

Simply click on the literary element you wish to comment on: plot, theme, characterization, and so on. This way you can compare novels you read and discuss and keep your notes organized for future reference. It's interesting to compare notes within an author's repertoire, or between genres or similar periods of literature.
