TBBS Book Club

Do you love books? Do you want to get to know some new people? Try TBBS Book Club to talk books with the good people of Talking Books! We meet over the phone once a month. Just dial a toll-free number and you will be connected to your fellow readers.

To prevent an all-out melee, the book group is moderated by a TBBS Reader Advisor. We tend to choose books that are newly available through Talking Books. Occasionally we will toss a well-worn classic into the mix. Book Club is a place to relax and express your opinions in a safe environment. Whether you loved it, hated it, or were ambivalent, you are entitled to your own opinion. Librarians are available for safety.

The Rules of Book Club

Here are a few details about book club and how we run:

  1. It is all free.
  2. Book club is a safe space.
  3. The books are all fiction and cover a wide range of genres and topics.

  5. Remember to return them when you're done!
  6. Grab something to drink before you call. Once you dial in, you won't want to leave.
  7. What happens in Book Club, stays in Book Club.
