Book clubs have historically played an essential role in the lives of generations of readers. Whether they served as social groups, a place for like-minded individuals to share ideas, or even catalysts for revolutions, there’s no doubt that book clubs helped shape the way we consume literature.
Nowadays, book clubs have lessened in popularity, which makes sense considering that society has been reading far less than we once did. One poll found that roughly 23% of Americans haven’t read a book in any format in the last year. Despite smartphones making reading more accessible than ever, the number of avid readers continues to wane.
