- Ongoing celebrity and well-known book clubs, with information on their picks starting in January 2019.
Which clubs do we track?
- Oprah’s Book Club (you can’t have a book club list without her!)
- Reese Witherspoon
- Read with Jenna Bush Hager
- Belletrist (aka Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss)
- Andrew Luck
- And last, but not least, goop (yep – our gal pal GPal’s goop just started a book club in late April)
Wait, what about Emma Watson? Or Florence Welch? They had book clubs too!
Sadly, their book clubs are on hiatus. We chose to focus only on ongoing book clubs.
How to find them?
Great question! You can see these book clubs in the media mentions drop-down, located on the advanced search page (scroll on down to the letter b – all of our book clubs are listed under “Book club”).
Or, if you want to be a field code pro, try:
MM “Book club” to see all of the picks, or MM "Your favorite book club name here"
