How exactly does one start a Book Club?

I currently have about 5 people and am waiting on a couple more. So do you have the meetings once a month? Is that enough time for everyone to read the book -- I mean we do all have jobs. And then I guess we take turns hosting it? How do we decide who hosts and when? Anyone who ever started one up and has any advise, I'd appreciate it. What did you do that didn't work and what did you do that did? Also, being that we're just getting started and we don't know who has read what, I thought we should start with a newly released book? Any suggestions on good newly released books?

I would suggest you have less than 10 members if you plan to meet at member's homes. At the end of our 7 member rotation, we have a members vote. I bring 3-4 books to the... More
