Lost in a Good Book

Reader's Circle is a way to connect with book-related groups. Reader's Circle is a free public directory that specializes in listings for book clubs and reader's circles. Anyone may post a listing or search for a group by zip code — all for free. Reader's circles are divided into three basic types: academic (being organized around a subject), civic (serving as a public forum), and social (being organized around an age range). Along with suggesting various possibilities for the groups, the different types are meant to provide additional structure in the absence of a specific book participants are reading together. The organization's purpose in introducing reader's circles and providing the directory is to help bring together a new, more inclusive community, one based on a shared interest in books and conversation.
