Discussion is the heart of the book club, and the majority of time should be devoted to discussion; so don’t waste time struggling with noisy plastic bags or damage your book trying to stuff it into your purse.  Thirty-One offers some great solutions for book lovers!

A Book Club Companion

Combining the All-In-One Organizer with the Fold-And-Go Organizer, creates a simple, elegant solution to meet your book club needs.

The All-In-One Organizer is 8″ high, 12″ wide, and 6.5″ deep with a mesh pocket on each 6.5″side, and it had two sturdy handles.  As a Book Club Companion, it holds:

  • A Good Book (or your ereader/iPad)

  • Reading Group Guide (if any)
  • A Binder for Any Handouts from/for Book Club
  • Container of Cookies or Snacks to Share
  • The Fold-And-Go Organizer

Bundling your book club supplies into this mobile companion gives you an organized solution that leaves you a free hand to carry in a dish for a potluck meeting or shake hands with new members while offering the flexibility to travel to someone’s home, a meeting at the library or even a coffee shop! It also keeps your book club supplies neatly together to make getting ready for a meeting a snap!

Also, the All-In-One Organizer can be personalized! “Book Worm” “Book Club” “Heavy Reader” or “Keep Reading” are a few suggestions, but it’s completely up to you!

Don’t Forget the kids!

Libraries across the nation will soon start their summer reading programs for children, why not get a head start on keeping your kids’ reading organized!

Get an All-In-One Organizer to keep up with their library books.  Use the Fold-And-Go Organizer to keep the library’s hand outs (rules, etc) handy! Add the Hang-Up Home Organizer!  It’s 42″ high and 22.5″wide with2 clear note card sleeves, 2 large clear pockets (that can fit a standard sheet of paper), 4 pockets with clear ID slots. It holds 3 markers and includes 1 dry-erase marker! You can display your children’s progress on the reading list or on the library’s reading charts in the clear pockets! You can even make  reading wish lists!

If your library doesn’t offer a reading program, you can always make one to share with your kids. Why not read a book together this summer? Choose a book, pick a time (after dinner works well), and sit down together without phones, the TV, or video games and take turns reading out loud.

Strengthen their literacy skills, help them be more conformable speaking to groups, and foster their imagination all while spending time together!

And if their schools have summer reading lists, you can display those too! Having a reminder out were you can see it can help your children stay organized and save all of you from having an unread book hanging over their heads in the last weeks of summer vacation!
