Ms. Fineman's book is an invaluable resource for anyone who is thinking of starting a book club, as well as anyone who simply wants to breathe new life into an existing book club. Tired of showing up and talking about the book you read for 10 minutes before the conversation turns to jobs, dates, kids, etc.? "Talking About Books" provides readers with the tools they need to think about book discussion in a whole new way. It's easy to use and full of practical, yet thought-provoking pointers for getting a discussion going and keeping it going. Since our book club began using "Talking About Books," our discussions have become much more meaningful, as well as entertaining. I actually find that I get more out of the books I am reading, too. I notice things about plot structure, setting, and other literary devices that I never realy focused on before. Whether you are just beginning or are a seasoned book clubber, I highly recommend Ms. Fineman's useful guide. Soon you will be talking about books in a whole new way!
