Many people around Barnesville High may not know that we have Book Club or what it’s exactly about. The thing people may fail to realize is that Book Club chooses a new book each month and after reading it, they gather for breakfast in the morning every month to discuss the specific book. So what’s so great about reading a book once a month and getting together to discuss it? Two year Book Club member and junior Kaitlyn Maesse explained, “There are lots of benefits to being in Book Club! Especially for a busy person like me, it gives me an incentive and motivation to read as much as I can. It is so much fun to come to Book Club with the book read and being able to discuss it.” Although some may see this club as a strict one that requires extensive work to stay involved, it’s actually much more laid back with members having the choice to read certain books and to decide what meetings they’d like to go to. Two year member and senior Bobbi Lewis stated, “One benefit of being in Book Club is that when you think you have nothing to do, you will always have something to fill the time and it challenges you to read books you never thought you would read.” Book Club leader and English teacher Mrs. Gross said, “I think Book Club gets kids to pick up books they wouldn’t usually read. I love having a discussion with the kids that’s more informal than in the classroom.” Not only is Book Club a great way to be involved, but it opens people up to trying new books and giving an incentive to read more. If you’re interested in joining, go talk to Holly Inniger or Mrs. Gross to get next month’s book!
