At Bookclubz, we’re always searching for ways to bring our communities of readers together — and continually improving our product to make it happen! Check out the three latest updates we’ve introduced this September to improve your book club experience!


New on the App! Discussion Guides and Join a Book Club

You asked, and we made it happen! Enhance book club on the go — Discussion Guides and Join a Book Club are now live and accessible via the Bookclubz App. (Don’t have Bookclubz on your phone yet? Download on the App Store or Google Play.)

Find them both under the “Resources” tab in your App. Now you can access Discussion Guides for your club’s next meeting at your next meeting. And, you can pick a public book club that’s perfect for you on Join a Book Club wherever, and whenever, your literary inspiration strikes.



New! Admin Dashboard for new Club Creators

Creating your first book club? We’re here to set you up for success. New club creators will see the Admin Dashboard once they’ve created their club, full of all the next steps to guide you through the process of setting up your book club. We’ll walk you through inviting members, adding books, creating a meeting, sending your first poll, and more! So there’s more time for reading — and being — together.


Once you complete a setup task, the reminder will disappear — or you can close it by clicking the X! This page is only visible to club admins, and will disappear from your club profile once you’ve completed or closed all of the reminders.

Interested in having more information about what’s happening in your club displayed here? Send us an email and let us know what you’d like to see on your club’s dashboard!



You may also have noticed a refreshing design update to Discussion Guides on the website and a bookish makeover to emails from Bookclubz. (Not a subscriber? Scroll down to add your email to the list for monthly reading recommendations and more!) You know you can visit Bookclubz to search for book clubs to join, discover online communities of readers, keep track of your books, and find reading inspiration...but we want to make every part of your Bookclubz experience an inspired verbal and visual delight.



We are always eager for feedback on how we can make the Bookclubz site and app even better! If there’s a feature you think is missing, or something that would help your club, reach out to us anytime! We incorporate user feedback into updates to the site and app frequently, and we’d love to learn more about how we can make Bookclubz even better.
