Warrior Book Club FAQs

How often will books be read, what is the time commitment, and what are the expectations?
We will spend about two months on each book. We will read lifelong learning, personal growth, novels and other books that take an average of nine hours to read cover to cover. If you have between one and two hours a week to read, you can make it happen!

What is a bonus book?
A bonus book is an additional read with its own associated discussion topics in the forum. The lead book will still continue, but this is an additional option for those who want to participate.

Is there any cost to participate?
Participation in the book club is free.

How do book club discussions work?
Book club discussions will include a program moderator who manages the forum and provides additional content related to the book. The moderator will pose questions to the group, share relevant articles and facilitate conversation about topics in the book. Members will be encouraged to post and share as well. This format allows for ongoing conversation and makes it easy for readers to connect with each other through the forum.
