How to Start a Book Club at Your Workplace | Sam Thomas Davies - Deepstash
Book Clubs

A book club is a reading group who read and talk about books based on a topic or an agreed-upon reading list.

The book club can meet monthly. That will give members enough time to read the book, think about key ideas, and prepare for the meeting.

  • It improves how a group or department does what it's intended to do. All departments have problems that they don't understand. By reading books that improve how the department does what it does, the team gains insight that they would've missed otherwise.
  • Reading similar books ensures all team members are aligned.

  • Decide when to meet and for how long. For example, a monthly one-hour meeting so that each team member can read the book, write a book summary, and give their inputs.
  • Choose a book selection.
  • Decide on a meeting format. During the meeting, each team member will share their feeling about the book - what they liked, disliked, how the department could benefit from its idea, how it relates to other books you've read as a department.
  • Assigning one person to take notes can be a good idea. Every person will give unique perspectives about what is relevant.
