How to Join a Reading Group
To participate in a reading group for the 2023 List (January 1 – December 31, 2022 publications), please enroll as a reading group member by July 31, 2022. Active members will receive the renewal Google Form via email; new members may request the Form by emailing us. Members should plan to attend meetings regularly and participate in at least half of the discussions during the reading year in order to take part in end-of-the-year voting. During meetings we follow the CCBC Book Discussion Guidelines. Authors and publishers are welcome to sit in on our discussions but may not nominate or comment on a title.

Reading Group Facilitators

Up to Five, Ruth Anne Champion
Six to Nine, Margery Bayne
Ten to Fourteen, Carolyn LaChance
Fifteen and Up, Ruth Compton

Nominating a Title
You must be a member of a Capitol Choices reading group in order to nominate a title for discussion, however members are welcome to nominate titles for any reading group (i.e., a member of the 10-14 reading group is welcome to nominate a title for readers 15+, and any member may nominate an audiobook). Final inclusion of an audiobook on our list will be determined by the reading group for which the audiobook would best fit.
