A Year of Reading: A Month-By-Month Guide to Classics and Crowd-Pleasers for You and Your Book Group Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A reading guide, organized around the calendar year, offers descriptions of each book, discussion questions, information about the authors, and lists of video, Internet, and bibliographical resources.

Synopsis:

There are more than fifty thousand new books published each year. Choosing what to read can seem overwhelming. A Year of Reading relieves the anxiety by helping readers find just the right book for each month of the year.

Aimed at individuals and reading groups, A Year of Reading provides five fiction and nonfiction selections for each month with thorough summaries in the following categories: Crowd-Pleasers, Classics, Challenges, Memoirs and Potluck. This book also makes reading more fulfilling by providing additional selections, plus questions about the selections to stimulate thought and discussion.

Also included is information on authors, reviews, video and Internet resources and annotated lists of related reading. And if you still think reading is too passive, try one of the many activities suggested, such as author readings, visits to museums, nature hikes and more.

The appendices focus on book clubs, from the basics of starting your own to improving a group that has been together for some time.
