Book Club Kits

Book Club KitLooking for a great book to discuss at your next book club meeting?

Check out our Book Club Kit collection. The kits contain at least 10-12 paperback copies of each title along with an accompanying guide to help you explore the book's style, plot, and themes.

The titles in this collection have been carefully selected by a member of our staff, and represent a wide variety of topics, interests, and genres. Both fiction and non-fiction titles are included.
