Ratings and Reviews
Excellent App/Website to Manage Your Book Club!
Our neighborhood book club switched from Book Movement to Book Clubs at the end of last year, and we are really enjoying the enhanced experience. We love the design and capabilities of the feature-rich app and website, including the ability to upload photos from past meetings, upload documents (like recipes from holiday parties), send private messages, rate books, and create polls (like helping to choose between two books). I was able to easily upload our list of ten years of prior books via an Excel file. Reminders and notifications are always sent timely, and I generally receive helpful responses to the questions and issues I’ve shared with the Book Clubs team. There are just a few unaddressed items that I previously shared which would make our experience even better -
We need to add a notification with next month’s book choice. This should be automatically sent on the day following the current month’s meeting (e.g., send notice of March’s book selection the day after February’s meeting). Book Clubs is set up so that notices are sent when a meeting is created or updated, unless you turn off that notice. Since we often select our books months in advance, we need a reminder of what book was selected before each meeting.
The meeting reminder emails should include the hosts’ names, and not just their physical addresses.
Regardless, I highly recommend this app (and website) to manage your book club!

Thanks, so glad you are enjoying the app! We have a number of enhancements in the works for clubs that pick all their books for the year at once - this is on that list, hopefully later this year!
This platform and app has proved so useful and convenient for our book club’s needs. It is user friendly and has several functions we use frequently from polls to message boards to the currently reading and books we’ve read lists. Notifications come in clutch when polls are posted or important messages. The site offers suggestions and a way to branch into other book clubs if you don’t have your own and the database of book discussion guides is ever growing. The creators are responsive to feedback or issues and treat you like a valued customer. They’re also always working to improve the entire platform. Our book club is coming up on our one year anniversary and we love this app!
Easy to use, but could be improved
I have been using this app for a couple of months now and I like it for the most part. I wish there was a comments or discussion section for members to post in the meeting invites. It would be helpful to have that for members to post what they are bringing or anything they wish to communicate to the group for that particular meeting. Also for some reason when I add an address to the meetings, it never posts it the first time around and I have to come back and edit the meeting to add it again. It’s a small thing and likely user error, but it has happened twice. If we could save addresses or if it populated the location I am typing in it would be nice. Lastly, I think it could be a little more intuitive. Perhaps opening to a Home/Welcome Screen? I am not sure how to articulate what I mean. Just a place for the user to start visually with like your next event and book recommendations based on previous meetings and ratings. It doesn’t feel intuitive to me that it opens up to meetings, which is in the middle of the options as opposed to the left. If it were a home button that stood out, maybe. I will continue to use the app. It seems like the makers are frequently putting out updates and read the reviews for constructive criticism. I hope this helps!
