“This sweet little app was specifically designed to make your book club life easier.” — Book Riot
The first app built for book clubs and collectively curated by book clubs.
For the first time ever, you and your club members can build a shared, private bookshelf that puts meeting details, RVSPs, discussion questions, book info, book club ratings and Amazon & iBooks links for your books at your fingertips--and sends automatic, customizable book club reminder emails to your members.
But that’s only the beginning — Book Movement also helps you build your own bookshelf, explore Top Book Club Picks and read reviews from other book clubs.
BOOK CLUB RECOMMENDATIONS
“I am often asked for book club recommendations. Here is a great list for your consideration.”— author Kristin Hannah
Our Top Club Picks List tracks the 100 books our 68,000 book clubs are talking about, each rated and reviewed by book clubs, and is the only list of its kind.
Since 2004, BookMovement has been the premier online destination for book clubs.
And now, we’ve created the first app for book clubs. Built and happily tested by book clubs. And ready to welcome yours.
HOW IT WORKS
• Book Club Simplified —Add meeting details, book selections, note and host & the app sends automatic, customizable meeting reminders to your members to RSVP & add the meeting to their calendar with all the details—then hosts & admins can see who’s coming & what they’re bringing, get a count for food & seating and all your members can glance at discussion questions for your reading. At or after your meeting, when your club decides on a new book selection, add it ASAP so book information, book club ratings & reviews and instant access to Amazon & iBooks will be at your members’ fingertips and sent to your members the next day.
As an Amazon & iBooks associate, we earn from your purchases—and we use those earnings to provide this service to you and your book club.
• Cast Your Vote — Find a book you’d like to recommend to your club? Make club book selection a snap by adding a book as a possible club pick, then read about & vote (anonymously) on your favorites recommended by other club members.
• Happy Book Hunting….Looking for your next read? Browse custom book recommendations for your book club on your club screen—read about the books and add them to your Possible Club Picks in a tap. These recommendations change according to what your book club reads and how you & your members rate your book club selections. You can also discover books by adjective on our Discover tab, based on over 1,000,000 book club ratings; Explore New Releases—all rated & reviewed by book clubs. And updated weekly.
• Save Your Finds to…Your Finds — Save books you’d like to read with a tap of the heart button to Your Finds List, make a note of where you saw the book or who recommended it to you, then tap to buy. It’s like a shopping list for books!
Hope you are all staying safe, healthy and well! This update adds support for links in the host note to make it easier for to join meetings remotely.
Plus all the great tweaks & changes from 1.3.0, most importantly support for larger screen sizes like Plus sized devices and devices with a notch (e.g. iPhone X).
And not just that but we’ve also added sparkly new things too! A section to Attendees tab of meeting details to show members not attending as well as every members RSVP notes, plus the hostess note will now no longer be truncated when too long.

Pros and Cons
This is the best concept ever! I love love love the graphics and the automatic reminders and automatic meeting option! However, the app randomly crashes (closes in the middle of something) and sometimes it shows the correct amount of RSVPs and sometimes it showed that no one has RSVP’d so it’s unreliable as far as that goes. The chat set up is awkward, maybe you should take it down and not even offer it. I love the adjectives but most of the time the ones I select are not the ones that are saved as my review. This was working the last time I used it. Thank you :) and we did win 7 books yay!!!
Absolute Must for Book Clubs
I found this book club site on the web about a year ago when our book club started. Recently, this app, was added to complement the website. This is a great service. The site sends out notices of what your club is reading and the meeting date. Tracks RSVP of member meetings. Provides ratings, reviews and suggested questions for discussion of a great number of books. You can even view what other clubs are reading and which books are the most popular. Each month there are several books offered by publishers as give aways to book clubs to which you can apply and win. What more could you ask for. This is a great app which makes my job of coordinating our book club soooo much easier.
This app won’t take my password, you can’t log into Facebook to create an account and it doesn’t let your phone auto populate your contact info!! So, I picked five different passwords n I got an error message each time saying invalid password but no rules are posted anywhere on what the requirements are!! Awful way to treat a new customer n there’s no help button for logging in. Update: June 4, I was finally able to get in. Not sure how. But, I sent an email to Pauline, the developer and did not hear back. I have had to download this app at least four times. I go to open it and after logging in (it doesn’t remember me or let me log in with Facebook or google or my fingerprint so I have to input all the info each time), it crashes. Four times this happened. I deleted it twice and started all over again to no avail. I will pay for a working one. Very disappointed.
