“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!
This update brings some bug fixes on top of the great tweaks and changes of 1.3.0. You should see issues with review text being cut-off on the profile and book reviews tab fixed, as well as fixes to push notifications and tweaks to the club members page.
And in case you forget, 1.3.0 brought support for larger screen sizes like Plus sized devices and devices with a notch (e.g. iPhone X).
Ratings and Reviews
This has been super helpful for our book club
I had been looking around for a while to find something to get our book club’s books organized electronically. Stumbled upon this app probably from somewhere on social media and immediately installed it, investigated it, and presented to my club. Everyone enthusiastically jumped on board and we even went back and catalogued old books from prior years so we would have everything at our fingertips. It’s been super helpful to keep us organized, log several months worth of books to come and meeting sites (pre-Covid). We are still using this along with our zoom book club meetings to keep meeting info up to date and book selections current. It’s great! As a bonus, recently I’ve signed up for and listened to some great author interviews. So fun!! Definitely recommend!!
Perfect for Today’s Book Clubs
I started using this app pre-COVID to help organize our book club group. We have a very transient book club group with members constantly joining and others moving out of the area. Before Book Movement we were using a group chat, but it became a full time job trying to keep the recipients up to date. With the book movement app, members can remove themselves from the group, and the host/manager can add group members easily- right at their first meeting!
I also started a virtual book club with my mom and sisters (also pre-COVID), and the book movement app has been so helpful in keeping us organized.
Since COVID, book movement has been so helpful in keeping us organized and giving us something to look forward to each month. I would definitely give book app 5 stars!
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.
