However, the club has two annual Meet and Greets celebrations for members to socialize and network.

Book Club Genres:This book club reads varied sorts of Fictional Literature, which will be in rotation on a month to month basis. For example…If February’s genre is Romance then March’s genre will be Women's Fiction and so on and so forth.
Book Selection:Club members will know ahead of time the three books that are to be read over the course of three months.
Every other month members are to recommend two books they feel should be Book of the Month. Recommendations must be posted in the Group Discussion Topics on http://www.goodreads.com/ every other month. An email alert will be sent out to everyone as notification. Recomendations will then be added to the poll in the order they are posted by members in the Group Discussion Topics. Another email alert will be mailed to remind members of the recommendations deadline and when the poll is set up for voting.
Voting Process:Begining on the day members receive an e-mail alert, all members will have (4) days to vote on which (3) books they think should be read for the upcoming three months. The three books that receive the most votes will be titled the Books of the Month for the next three months. Depending on the month and the sub-genre assigned to that month, those books that received the most votes will be delegated to the corresponding month based on genre. If there is a tie, then the book club host will assign a member the task of choosing one of the two books in conflict.
Question Sources:Discussion questions will be taken from guides and posted around noon on within the first week of the month. Members are expected to participate in discussions via post in the Cozy Slipper's Book Club Forum.
