Melissa in St Louis Posted January 16, 2011 Share Posted January 16, 2011 Is anyone involved in a book club for homeschool kids? I'm thinking about starting one, but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it... My questions: Where do you meet? A library? A church meeting room? Someone's home? I'm happy to host it, and the underlying goal of the whole thing is "like-minded friends," so a house might feel more personal -- but then again, would I be comfortable taking my kids to someone's home that I didn't know? Would a neutral location be better? How do you handle getting books for everyone? Most of what we'd want to be reading wouldn't be carried at the library/wouldn't have enough copies, so people would probably need to order. I'm happy to collect money and order in bulk, but would $10-ish a month for a new book be a deterrent for families. I know there've been times that it would have been a stretch for us. I'm thinking the families could read the book at home during the month, and then meet up and talk about it. (What did you like best? How is this family like/unlike your family? Those kinds of things.) Perhaps the older children could present something. Then, we'd do a related craft or snack and be able to mingle. Does this sound appealing? Or have I lost my mind again? :tongue_smilie: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
