Reading with Coffee
Guidelines

Purpose

  • To learn new perspectives and participate in healthy debates.

  • Read books beyond your normal boundaries.

  • Opportunity to socialize with your neighbors/community and fellow book lovers.

  • Exposure to new ideas and differing viewpoints.

  • We have to talk about the book, if its a stinker the talk will be short.

  • Haven't finished or even read the book?

When its your time to choose a book for the group to read, it can either be enjoyable or frightening.  You won't please all, not everyone will like every book.

Consider

  • Topic

  • Length - typically no longer than 450 pages.

  • Publication date.

  • A book that fosters great discussion.

  • Should be available through the library.

  • Bring 2 books to present and let the group decide.

If you are the host, come with discussion questions, author information, author bio and author photo. 

Below are some resources, reviews, and discussion questions:
