Very Detailed Analysis of American Book Clubs by BookBrowse

Today I would like to share with you an email I received from BookBrowse about their new report on Book Clubs in the USA.  I am still going through the report myself, but there is quite a lot of useful information here, especially for libraries that run book clubs.

I hope this helps you to serve your book clubs better.  I will be incorporating some of this data in my updated Re-Charge Your Book Club presentations scheduled for this coming Fall

Here’s the info directly from BookBrowse:
Based on recent research, in-depth interviews and extensive experience, BookBrowse's just published white paper provides an intriguing and insightful look at Book Clubs.
