Bibliophiles! Discuss Your Favourites With The Chennai Chapter Of This Book Club
Broke Bibliophiles is a nation-wide book club, with individual chapters in different cities. It’s like any book club, with discussions, sharing of thoughts and ideas, and obviously the most important thing being a common love for books. And namma Chennai has her very own chapter that meets once a month to discuss, dissect and share a love for books. Plus, it’s also a great way to meet people.
Unlike most book clubs, they don’t have a book to talk about every month. Instead, their discussions are based on what the members are currently reading or have finished reading recently. So, it helps members learn about new books and add others to their list of books that they want to read. The best part? Every person attending these book club sessions gets to talk about a book before the full discussion sets in. Everybody participates in the discussion as they please, talking about either the book that someone else read or another book with a similar theme in the similar genre. Sometimes they even discuss movies that have been made on the books that have been mentioned.
When the book club started, they had about 15 members and now they have a lot more book lovers on board. They don’t have a set venue every month, simply because the book club grows every single time and with the changing number, it’s clearly hard to find the perfect venue to fit everyone. But if you’re part of the Facebook group, you’ll get to know the venue before they meet and if you can’t make it, you can still discuss books on the group!
