    Our family would love the possibility of an online book club! My kids don’t have many friends who are as book-crazy as they are and who love talking about books with them, so they are very excited about the possibility of doing a book club with other book-loving kiddos!

    I’d love an online book club! Would it only be in premium, though? I’ve been trying so hard to find a good online book club and haven’t been able to.

      Hi Jane, I don’t think a book club would only be in premium. It’s possible that members would get a discount, but an online book club would require a small fee from those joining either way (due to extra costs in technology and staffing). We’re just in the brainstorming phase, though, so keep the suggestions coming!
