April Book-Club Giveaway!


Our book club here at work is currently reading our ninth book since the start of the club less than a year ago! What’s more, our ranks have swelled to 32 active readers from the initial 12. Surely, that’s proof that the fun (aka provocative discussions, charcuterie platters, prosecco cocktails) we have is contagious. So contagious, in fact, that we want you to catch on—which is why we’re offering one lucky book club the chance to win 10 copies of Rona Jaffe’s The Best of Everything.

The Best of Everything, nestled in with all our past selects.

To enter, comment below and let us know that you’d like to share with your book club, or start your own! Comment boards will be open between now and April 30. See official rules here.

Check back in at the beginning of May to find out who won, and to read our thoughts on this month’s pick!

  • I would love to share this book with my club

  • Hi,

    I’m ready to stop talking and start doing a book club with my group of friends. Receiving the book would certainly help us to get started.


  • This book has been on my to read list for over a year. As a 20-something living in New York, we often think that we are forging new territory, but it’s so important to see how previous generations dealt with many of the same issues.

  • love to share great stories with everyone!

  • I started a book club one year ago with my mom and sister in-laws. We all live in different states, so I thought this would be a great way to stay in touch and get to know each other better. We rotate being the host once a month. The host picks a book, then she sends out a themed package( based on the book) to everyone to introduce the book and leads email discussions throughout the month. It’s been a wonderful way to stretch our minds ,as well as, a great opportunity to stay close as a family. We’d love a new book for the summer!! Thank you for challenging us:)

  • Would love to share these with my book club!

  • I think this book would be perfect for my book club. I’d love to win!

  • I think my book club would really like
    this — and there are only 4 of us!

  • This would be great to share.

  • Sounds like a fun book to share with Reading Graces!

  • Looks interesting. The best thing about our book club is that we have to sit down and talk with each other—about one subject. What a treasure!

  • I have always wanted to start a book club with my girlfriends. This would be a wonderful opportunity!!

  • I would love to start a book club! My friends all love to read and it would be great to all get together. This book will help us get started!!!

  • I would love to win this for my book club! our book club started in october 2011 and we have consistently met monthly until this month. I fear we’ve stagnated a little bit. Winning these books may be the boost we need to keep our club going.

  • Oh, my friends and I have just formed a book club. We meet on a weekly basis over dinner to talk about the assigned chapters. This way we can keep on track. We all got busy schedules but we refuse to be behind on our reading. Loads of fun on sharing our thoughts on the plot and characters but breaking bread away from family is such a joy. Would absolute love to share “The Best of Everything” with the members of “Run One’s Eye Over” Club. Thanks for the opportunity.

This book would help me to get some of my friends interested, also make husband jealous that Martha helped me start my book club. Thank you for considering my request!

  • My book club has started reading books that are movies or plays and we make it into GNO and go to see them. This gives the very busy ladies a chance to discuss the book, movie or play and most of all it brings together an amazing group of ladies.

  • I’d love to start a book club because I love to read and so do my friends.

  • I have a group of friends that were all teachers (we just retired) and are now empty nesters. We have talked about starting a book club and this would get us off and running.

  • My girlfriends and I all read, but we share the same books and pass them around, so we can never read the same book at the same time. Instead, we get together to share the book and drink quite a bit of wine, along with eating some really fattening foods… so winning and being able to all read the same book at tge same time might be less fattening and save us all some hangover
    headaches in the process. 0_o

  • I have belonged to a neighborhood Book Club for several years now and love it. Just met yesterday and though sometimes you might not like the book when you read it once we start discussing it you have a better appreciation for it. This book sounds like it would be a good one to discuss. We have several retired teachers in our group and I always love their feedback.
