They can be able to enrich our imagination and creativity and our character as a person. People read because of many reasons.

Since then, books have always been a part of our lives.
Books give us knowledge and information that we need to be able to have a more enriching existence. They can be able to enrich our imagination and creativity and our character as a person. There can be different reasons why people read. There are those who read to get rid of boredom and be entertained while others do it to gain more knowledge about a certain topic. While others read and get very passionate about it. At times, these people seek the company of others who share their interest. A community group is builti with whom they could sit down, discuss and give their opinions on certain books they have read and would like to recommend to someone.

Book clubs are groups composed of book enthusiasts. These are those who share a common interest and love for stories or information in the written word. Frequently, they meet in a specific place and time and discuss certain topics from what they have read or agreed to read. These groups give their members the opportunity to share their thoughts. Clubs come in small groups and meet regularly usually. At times, people find it difficult to find time to meet their fellow members regularly, especially with their hectic work schedules. Traditional clubs also tend to limit the growth of the members because their reach is usually limited as well.

However, nowadays, with the help of technology and the Internet, book enthusiasts can be part of a book club online. They can join discussions but this time through chats, forums and emails right in the comfort of their own homes or offices using their own PC. The interactions in online book clubs are possible 24/7 and provide a great variety of choices of authors and their work for the members. Hence, a book lover will have all that freedom to choose which books to read and even which clubs to join. Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild are among the most popular online book clubs of today.

The World Wide Web has been a great tool for book lovers who wants to keep this passion of theirs but don't have the time to join and participate in traditional groups and their activities. Online clubs give people a chance to continue cultivating their interest in books and share their opinions with others from the other side of the globe through virtual means.

In a nutshell, online book clubs open many possibilities for book lovers and provide widened opportunities for them to enrich themselves as they read and interact more with others who are as passionate about reading as they are.

Join a book club and let your love for books flow and grow together with others who share your passion. To join popular groups such as Doubleday Book Club, the Literary Guild, the Mystery Guild and more, visit their websites and discover many opportunities for book lovers.

Mar 21, 2011 - 8:12:20 AM

The concept of “new” and “old” money is hard for the average modern reader to understand. In most parts of the country, the term “nouveau riche” isn’t often used, and with the onslaught of new Internet millionaires and billionaires in the last decade, the judgment is certainly no longer there.

Modern-Day Anxieties in T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

Feb 12, 2010 - 7:37:11 AM

"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" is one of those poems that can seem horribly sad one day, and incredibly absurd the next.  Written by T. S. Eliot and published in 1915, it addresses the themes of isolation, industrialized cities, and great unease with the world.  You might have encountered this in a unit on poetry, and like many students, you might not have been impressed by its long-windedness.  For all its over-the-top wallowing around, though, there is a lot in the poem that speaks to anxieties we have today.... [Read the full story]
