Put on your Creative Caps!
Who chooses names for book clubs right? I know you're thinking "I'm not 5 in kindergarten, I don't need to name my club."
Unfortunately you are thinking wrong!
Any group that is successful whether it be the kindergarten reading group, the Red Hat Society Group, or your Book Club is successful because they create an identity. When people come together for a common goal, in our case to talk books, there is more of a camaraderie if you can refer to your group as something special.
The inspiration for names of book clubs can come from many places. For example, my mom was in a club where all the women were Red Hatters. Their particular Red Hat group always met for happy hour and drank, you guessed it, red wine. Well they ended up finding a wine called Jest Red with a label that perfectly symbolized their personalities. When they formed a book club from their original Red Hat group, it was natural to begin calling themselves Jest Red. It is cute, fun, original, and special to those people.
When organizing your book club and deciding upon your book club name, here are some things to consider:
Once you've answered these questions you're ready to think about actual names! For book clubs, it's always fun to get creative about using references to reading in your name.
My favorite is of course, the real book club queens!
