Bako Book Nerds Book Club bakobooknerds.com
We are a book club in Bakersfield, CA. My best friend and I created our book club in 2013. Our club reads one book per month and meets at the end of each month. We read primarily fiction novels and tend to cling with the fantasy genres but have tried to bend our comfort zone. Hosting is rotated each month to volunteering members.
Our club consists of ladies from a range of ages, religious beliefs, and professional fields. We don't care your age, if you have kids or none, what your political or religious beliefs are, or your marriage status. We do ask that you are of drinking age to join, though, since we typically serve wine at each meeting. We avoid religious & political books in order to keep it fun.
We are mainly a social club but we do have minimum participation guidelines to keep everyone involved in the monthly read:
For new members, we offer three months of trial attendance. For those first 3 months, you are welcome to try us on for size to see if we are a good book club fit for your needs. We only ask that you still try to participate & to RSVP, but you are not yet held to the same obligations that we require of joined members. We want you to not feel like you've rushed into something before you know what you are getting in to. We want you to be sure that you like our book choices, and that you get along with the girls. At the end of month 1, 2, or 3, if you have decided that this was a giant mistake, during this time, if you just stop contacting us or quit the club page, then we ask no questions and we don't try to contact you. You can quit no questions asked.
We are always accepting new members; (we have a 15-member cap, but in the few years since we began we have yet to get close to hitting our max). We usually have around 7 to 11 members at any given time.
