Loved it. This would be useful for any bookclub, not just a mother daugter one. Liked that she mentioned Web 2.0 stuff (like GoodReads) and talked lots about activities to extend the books and keep members intersted.

Part 1- A New Chapter: How To Get Your Club Started
Part 2- Turning the Page: Keeping Your Club Thriving
Part 3- Getting Over the Bumps: How to Handle Typical Club Challenges
