Remember silent reading time when you were in grade school? Well … you can re-create that experience as an adult and it’s not by simply reading quietly where you are.
Join a Silent Book Club (AKA Introvert Happy Hour) and get together with a group of people to read quietly — maybe at a bookstore, a library, a bar, or some other venue. Silent reading time begins when the bell rings and ends an hour later when the bell rings again. After that, it’s up to you. Talk a while & share what you’re reading with others or keep reading or … there are no rules.
North Dakota isn’t among the 70+ places around the world that have Silent Book Club chapters … yet. Maybe we should launch one at BSC?
