book club calendar for people who don't have time for book club calendars

Book Club Calendar (for people who don’t have time for book club calendars)

After much deliberation and discussion, the Book Club for People Who Have No Time for Book Clubs decided to have more structure and schedule. I wanted to keep our leisurely pace — a book a month is a bit too much for us all and we’d prefer to reflect  on them a little bit more.

So you’ll see our book club calendar is every SIX weeks rather than once a month like the typical book club. That means in a list of 19 books, we cover about two years. I’ve also arranged them seasonally based on the content of the book — autumn books for autumn, winter books for winter and so on.

Here’s the Book Club Calendar if you want to buy ahead:
