There isn’t anything complicated about Mrs Taiba’s book club – just friends getting together to share company and their love of reading.

Camden Council is encouraging more literary lovers to hold a book club with friends, family or colleagues. And to help, it has added 12 new titles to its book club kit.

The kits contain 10 copies of a book title as well as discussion questions to get the conversation started.

Mrs Taiba said she started a book club to ‘‘expand my horizons.’’

‘‘A book club is a great excuse to make and keep friends,’’ she said.

‘‘We try different genres. It’s a great social forum and escape from the outside world.’’

Mrs Taiba said she made new friends through the club which she described as ‘‘an enjoyable and meaningful addition to my social calendar.’’

‘‘Most times it’s just fun to chat,’’ she said.

More information about council’s Book Club Kits is available at www.library.camden.nsw.gov.au.
