San Jose, CA, January 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- With book clubs being the rage and leisure time at a premium, the release of the BookClub Kit wraps all the necessary elements together in one simple package, along with exclusive features for fun and meaningful book club gatherings. Christian Book Previews, a pioneer in online Christian review media, is launching the first BookClub Kit featuring The Restorer by Sharon Hinck, and it includes everything needed to host a book club.
“The idea is that we’ve done the planning and preparation work for book clubs, so they can simply go through our ideas and resources to choose what pieces to use in their own clubs,” says Stacy Oliver, founder of Christian Book Previews. “Everything from invitations to menus to craft ideas to in-depth literary information is included. But the best part is that we work closely with the author to get a behind-the-scenes look at the book, which we then pass on to reading groups.”
Beyond book selection, which is vital to successful book clubs, the BookClub Kit provides a host of creative ideas and insights to inspire readers and help them dig deeper into books.
With the BookClub Kit, reading groups will receive eight (8) copies of the selected book along with resources to:
Get close to the author – Included in the kit are a DVD with a personal message from the author, notes from the author’s sketch book, and favorite recipes.
Easily host a book club gathering– A helpful party planner and leader checklist contain decorating ideas, rich invitation graphics, a full menu in the theme of the book, and creative activities to do.
Explore literary and spiritual aspects -- Learn even more about the story's theme, characters, style, and historical setting with the exclusive literary guide, and use the in-depth discussion guide to enrich book club conversation.
As an added bonus, book clubs will have the opportunity to win upcoming BookClub Kits through interactive media games and drawings. New kits will be available every other month, and each kit’s availability will be limited to the time during which it is featured.
