It has always been the goal of Bookstore Romance Day to foster a relationship between the Romance community and independent bookstores all year ’round because, like any good relationship, you can’t just show your love one day a year and then go your separate ways for the rest of the year. As part of that ongoing mission, we have launched a quarterly Book Club.
Each quarter, we will select two (or more) books in different Romance subgenres. Our hope is that if you come for one, you’ll end up reading both. Discussions will take place in August (of course), November, February, and May with the new titles being announced at the beginning of the discussion period for the current titles. We will have a dedicated Book Club e-mail list, which you can sign up for here.
Reading of the first Book Club titles will take place during September and October with our first Book Club discussion happening during the first half of November. Discussion of The Bride Says No will happen during the week of November 4th and Once Ghosted, Twice Shy and Can’t Escape Love will be discussed the week of November 11th. You can join the discussion on Goodreads or follow the hashtag #BRDBookClub on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll find purchase links to our opening titles below and there is a playlist available on Libro.fm. (If you are not yet a Libro.fm member, sign up for a new membership and use the code BRD at checkout to receive three audiobooks for just $14.99.)
The following bookstores will be hosting in-person conversations about these books on the dates listed. Additional bookstores and other book clubs will be added as we get that information.
If you have any questions, you can e-mail us.
