In 2004, I launched a BookMovement.com, a book recommendation network curated by book clubs. Today, BookMovement’s Top Club Picks List is curated by over 46,000 BookMovement book clubs and is a trusted resource for book clubs & the publishing industry alike.
In October of 2016, I launched Book Club by BookMovement, the first iOS app built by–and for–book clubs. It’s designed to be used at book club & simplify your book club life–from managing, hosting, RSVPing to book buying. You can learn more about how to use the app here.
Now I find myself asking: Why is it so hard to find out which books are coming out? & which magazines are reviewing which books? Are they *worth recommending to my club?* Which ones are on sale? Which books are becoming movies? So the Best Books Index was born.<p>
And how about a shop where book clubs can pick up some hand-picked tried-and-true hosting items, books, or reading supplies? So: the BookMovement Book Club Shop was born.
