Abstract:This study posits a metaphor with which to articulate the otherwise nebulous aspects of group reading, offers vocabulary for describing book group activities thereby enabling real rather than stereotypical representations on which to base expectations for club outcomes, extends reader response theory, and has professional implications for readers' advisors, literacy educators and sponsors of local and mass reading events.
