5 Reasons Why I Won’t Join Your Book Clubs

5 reasons no book club

As a known reader, I’m often being invited to or suggested that I attend or start my own book club.

I can’t think of a worse idea.

Not only does it mean I’d have to leave my house for a commitment once a week (or whenever) including in the rain and cold, but I don’t like the idea of book clubs for a number of reasons.

  1. I don’t want anyone telling me what to read. I have my own system and I don’t want anything messing with it.
  2. I don’t want to have to purchase a book I’m not excited about. What if my book club wants to read some boring adult book about a housewife who gets divorced from her cheating husband and finds herself travelling the world? Ugh. How mediocre.
  3. I don’t necessarily want to ‘discuss’ a book. This is why I run a blog and write reviews. No one can interrupt my trains of thought here. You read my review then you can accept or reject it.
  4. Other people suck.
  5. Ugh, why would I want to actually go somewhere and talk to people face to face when I can just blog to my thousands of friends and followers online? That way my cats can wrestle for the prime position on my lap and I can snuggle under my favourite blanket and eat snacks without anyone judging me.

    Your points are so valid here! However I do love and participate in online book clubs with my blogging friends because I find that there is a lot less pressure to commit to going somewhere once a week and I can discuss in my pajamas! It’s much more convenient.
