I’ve been debating for a couple of months whether or not to start up a horror book club. With everything going on right now, it would obviously be a virtual club, with online meet ups happening once a month (or even once every two months, depending on people’s schedules and availability). A virtual club would also mean that the club would be open to people all across the UK, or even the world (I’m perhaps getting ahead of myself there).
I want there to be an emphasis on buying books either second-hand or through independent bookstores where possible. Every year, millions of books end up in landfill sites and even if, say, five people in the club bought their books second-hand, that’s five less books in landfill. Additionally, 2020 was a hellish year for smaller businesses and I think it’s more important than ever to try our best to support independent bookstores.
As well as an Instagram page, I was thinking I could create a Facebook group too. This would allow for book club members to discuss other horror novels, or even things such as movies, games, podcasts etc.
Anyway, basically, I just wanted to reach out to my fellow horror fans and see if anyone would be interested in joining?
