I participate in a book club with some wonderful ladies from my neighborhood. Our local library has a stash of book club kits available, which might possibly be a well kept secret until now. The kit comes with multiple copies of the book, cliff notes, and often times supplements to the reading. These kits work nicely since we are all living the starving-college-student life and too poor (or cheap...whichever) to buy books. But it does mean we are limited to a short list of books as there are not enough resources in our small town for multiple copies of books at one time. We make it work though and we have lots of fun getting together. Check this page for book club meeting ideas and resources.
