About Us

Bookclubz is an online management tool for your book club. Our mission is simple: help book clubs stay organized, so that they can stay together.

We believe book clubs enhance the reading experience. Discussing books with friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and/or acquaintances can help keep you reading, provide new perspectives on life and literature, and lead to the creation of special bonds. We aim to provide organizational resources that will help your book club thrive.

We created Bookclubz to free one club in Philadelphia from never-ending email chains. The site is now serving thousands of clubs all over the world!

Use Bookclubz to coordinate membership, create book and calendar polls, schedule meetings, track RSVPs, send messages, rate books, save your club’s library, and get inspiration for your next read. If you have any comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
