Decide on Your Reading Material
Deciding which book to read can be tough; you want everyone to be happy, but it’s also a good idea to encourage people to read new genres.
There are a few options for this. Firstly, you could ask each member of the group to nominate 6 books, and then ask each member to vote for one book from each person. The 6 books with the most votes will then be your reads for the next 6 months (assuming you’ll be meeting monthly).
You could suggest that you take it turns; whoever’s turn it is to host the next meeting chooses the next book. Encourage your members to choose a wide variety of books, as this is the best way to expand your reading material and discover new ideas. You may discover a new favourite genre if you’re pushed out of your comfort zone!
