For any reader who has the time and inclination, a book club adds a new level of enjoyment to reading. The face to face camaraderie of fellow readers provides some of the social interaction so important to our lives. And what is more interesting than discussing books?
But for those readers who aren’t available when their library book club meets or who get much of their social interaction via the internet, there is a relatively new option. Andrew Luck, quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts (still in the playoffs at this writing), has an internet book club: andrewluckbookclub.com. There is no joining and no time constraints. Periodically he posts two books on the website, one for young readers (rookies) and one selected from his current reading (veterans). Readers are encouraged to share their reactions via social media, though that’s not necessary. To learn more about the club, simply go to the website and click on “about.”
Even if you have no interest in the club aspect, the website is a valuable resource. The books listed are available at your public library, both rookie and veteran. Andrew Luck does podcasts with current authors, and it’s interesting to see what other readers think of the choices.
