Do you enjoy reading? Are you pretty good at remembering what you read? If so, have you heard of Book Club?

In the Book Club, everyone votes on a book, from any genre, to read.  There isn’t a specific type of book that cannot be read.

After the book is chosen and everyone has read it, they have a discussion over in it the meetings.

Book Club meets every other Wednesday, for about an hour, in the library. Andrea Lawler is the club sponsor.

“Book Club is really relaxing and it’s fun to find other people with a common interest,” Hayley Watson, a senior Book Club member, stated her opinion on the club.

Not only do you get to meet new people and read different books, but you also get to compete in a competition called Book Battle.

To prepare for Book Battle everyone gets assigned a book to read from the Kentucky Bluegrass book list, except master readers, who are quick readers and as a team read all the books.

At Book Battle, people from each team gets placed at a table with buzzers, like the ones you’d see at an academic team match.

Questions are then asked about details in the books, and the school who answers the most answers correctly wins.

Mrs. Lawler has informed me that Book Battle will be held at the Taylor County Public Library this year, in either April or May.

“We won Book Battle last year” said Mrs. Lawler, pride evident in her eyes.

Overall book club consists of this competition and at least six club picked books to read. It’s not too late to join!

Hayley said, “Book Club has been a great experience for me and would be good for someone who loves to read.”
