About Reading Group Choices:
Reading Group Choices has been selecting discussible books for reading groups since 1994.
Reading Group Choices partners with publishers, independent bookstores, public libraries, and authors to develop resources to enhance the shared reading group experience.
We look forward to recommending titles that will inspire lively discussions for many years to come!
Reading Group Choices Resources:
RGC creates an annual print guide, which is distributed to bookstores, libraries, and directly to book groups.
Digital resources include the website, blog, and eNewsletters.
The website is updated on the first of each month with new recommendations and contests. The blog is updated monthly with new resources and advice, group and shop spotlights, and you can follow along long distance with the RGC group. RGC also sends out a free monthly eNewsletter and free biannual book club mailing.
The RGC staff reviews all recommendations to choose titles that encourage lively conversations.
Books presented on the website, in the newsletter, and in the print guide have been recommended by book group members, librarians, booksellers, literary agents, publicists, authors, publishers, and our advisory board and staff.
In addition to the print and digital resources, RGC organizes reading group events.
Events are held at independent bookstores, book festivals, and libraries around the country, including the RGC event space, 702WI, in Madison, Wisconsin.
