Last year I invited my coworkers to join me in completing the 2015 Reading Challenge. We met once a month during lunch to talk about literature and reading, and everybody seemed to be enjoying getting to know each other through books. I even set up a poster outside my office door and encouraged people to track their progress.


After about the first four or five months, interest waned and fewer people came out to our book club meetings. I chalked it up to an increase in our client base (I work as a social worker and there are certain times in the year that we see more people applying for our programs), but that hasn’t changed even after I introduced this year’s reading challenge.

Do any of you have advice on how to keep a work book club going? Thanks in advance!
