Asynchronous book clubs with Brainstory

So... did you read the book?
By Cassidy Williams

Okay, anyone who’s been in a book club knows that it’s hard to get everyone to read the book. It’s even harder to get everyone to read the book and meet up to discuss it. And it’s even harder to get everyone to read the book, meet up to discuss it, and have a productive (and fun!) conversation about it. So, how do you get everyone on the same page?

(…pun intended)

Getting started with Brainstory

You’ve all got a book to read. Start talking to Brainstory with that book in mind. What did you like? What did you not like? What did you learn? What did you not understand? You’ll naturally expand on certain ideas, concerns, and action items. In less time than it takes to read a chapter, you’ll have a finished outline of your book club discussion!

Sharing and discussing your books with Brainstory

Send your Brainstory to all of your fellow readers, either via email or by dropping the link in the group chat! They can respond whenever they finish the book, and you can all see each other’s thoughts in one place.

The way Brainstory aggregates feedback is a fun and powerful experience that helps you really understand what everyone else liked and disliked, what they thought of certain parts of the book, and where they might disagree with how you interpreted it.

Does this replace the in-person book club?

It doesn’t have to! Brainstory is a great way to get the conversation started, but it doesn’t have to be a replacement for the book club itself. You can get everyone on the same page before you meet up, and make sure everyone’s voice is heard, even if they can’t make it to the book club meeting.

This is just one of the many ways you can use Brainstory to make your life easier, and we’re excited to see what you do with it!
