Celebrate your group with these suggested traditions
I can hear the Fiddler on the Roof tune now, 'Tradition!' Every enduring book club should have at least one or two traditions to look forward to. Whether it's an annual book club holiday party, reading a classic novel once a year or choosing a book genre that's outside of your comfort zone each and every book club sets the standard and tone for keeping some worthwhile traditions alive.
One of our favorite book club traditions is to pick a novel from the same author every January. The trick of this tradition is to pick a prolific author that not only has written many stand alone novels but also holds a special place within our groups heart. By starting this simple New Year tradition it not only helps in making a quick book decision (in an already busy December) but it's a exciting to know we will be visiting our favorite author again and again every year. Our only problem is agreeing on which novel to choose from!
What is a prolific author? A prolific author is producing or capable of producing (especially abundantly) a multiple of published books. Astoundingly enough there are authors that have published hundreds or even thousands of novels! How fantastic would it be to select an author with over one hundred novels? Your book club will have a guaranteed read for many years. Best would be at least five plus books that are not within a series. A series would be a continuation of a story that you may not want to wait a year to finish. Here's a list of authors and their many published books on Amazon.com

Whether you choose from the above list of traditions or come up with your own the goal is to always 'go beyond' and establish that reading group that will stick around for years to come.
