At Your Paper Quest, we see our subscription boxes as more than just a selection of books, but rather a gateway into new worlds, immersive stories, and unforgettable adventures. But your literary journey with us doesn’t end with the arrival of each box; instead, it extends into the vibrant and enthusiastic community that awaits you in our monthly book club. Come on in, and let’s explore the myriad benefits of joining a book community where every page turned, every word savoured and every experience shared enhances your reading and connects you with fellow literary enthusiasts.

Explore New Genres and Expand Your Reading Horizons

It can be discomforting to step out of the familiar old habits, not just when it comes to reading but in life too, that can be made easier when you’re not stepping out of that comfort zone alone. So, if you find yourself sticking to the familiar old genres and well-loved authors but aren’t sure where to go next to expand your reading horizons then joining a reading community is the perfect antidote and companion.

When engaging with other readers in a community you will be exposed to a diverse range of genres, introduced to new authors with the surety of strong recommendations and offered fresh perspectives on titles you already love. Whether you enjoy sharing your favourite theories or perusing those of others, whether you like a particular style but can’t find others like it, or whether you’re ready to just talk to your heart’s content with those like you, a monthly book club offers everything you need to share your passion with others.

If you subscribe to our monthly book box not only do you receive an invitation to join our virtual book club, but you’ll also be receiving two tales we have carefully curated to be something unique, expansive, and showcasing a talented independent and self-published author.

Deepen your Understanding of What You Read

When people come together and share their thoughts, views, and perspectives, it benefits everyone who participates. The more time you spend in a reading community sharing your interpretations of passages and poems, and listening to and reading other interpretations, the better your literary analysis will become.

In literature every word counts. Every bit of punctuation, every choice of verb and adjective, and even names themselves can have deeper hidden meanings. Some may be contextual, some may be pointing towards plot development, and some are used to bring a certain atmosphere and colour to the scene in question. But everyone interprets these symbols differently and being exposed to the insights of others helps you to see the stories in a different light.

You might be challenged on your views and it might require you to go back and re-read the parts that formed the original opinion and find evidence to back it up, or you may be required to change your opinion when another point of view is offered to you. In both cases, you learn to engage with the stories in a deeper and more meaningful way and have an enthusiastic community to share these new insights and developments with.

Creating Meaningful Connections

Joining a monthly book club is one of the surest ways for a lover of words to meet like-minded people. I’m not sure if there’s anything sweeter, or rarer, than the moment you ask a fellow reader if they have read that book and they look to you, eyes wide with surprise and say ‘Yes, yes I have!’ For here was a book that changed your life and no one else you know has read or bothered to take you up on your recommendation. It creates such an instantaneous and potent connection that can create a friend and literary companion for life.

To find yourself surrounded by such people is an opportunity you just can’t turn down. Your Paper Quest’s virtual book club will help ignite the joy of meeting and connecting with like-minded individuals, and you’ll soon develop a sense of belonging and feeling like you are right where you belong.

Inspire Creativity

Lovers of consuming words, how they feel, and the journeys they take us on are often just as enthusiastic about expressing their own creativity as they are in applauding the work of others. Sometimes we just need a push, a conversation, an unexpected insight to push us beyond our comfort zones and to ignite that desire to express and expand our creativity in many forms.

As a teenager, my most common form of writing was developing an unexpected twist on stories I had just been reading. Whether it was writing myself as a student at Hogwarts, writing an epic based on the film ‘300’ I had just watched, or imagining if my friends and I had travelled the road of the Fellowship through the world of Middle-Earth, it was the creativity around me that inspired me to create my own works of fiction.

And that is still true today. Nothing inspires creativity more than two or more people sharing an idea and dreaming it up to become a reality in some way, shape or form. Not only do you know it’s an idea others will enjoy, but the very discussion gives you the energy needed to write, explore, express, and create.

This is the same when people are telling you about genres and stories you might never have read otherwise. Being surrounded by other people’s enthusiasm is infectious, and so just by attending a book club or joining a book community, you are placing yourself to be inspired, to broaden horizons and to stretch your creativity in new directions.

Events, Author Meets and Q&A’s

If you subscribe to our monthly book box your invitation to our virtual book club is included in every box and we invite you to subscribe and join today. We offer you not only all the amazing benefits we have discussed above but also the opportunity to talk to the authors of our monthly selections and ask them questions directly.

So, whether you have a burning question about the characters or when the next book might be released, you get to put your questions forward, pick the minds of our talented authors, and watch your questions answered in our monthly interviews.

Our book club is a place of belonging for literary lovers to join, share and explore each other’s insights and experiences of each of the books we send out to you, as well as others you may wish to discuss yourselves.

Join Your Paper Quest today and immerse yourself in a world of endless adventures, meaningful connections, and the joy of discovering new stories. Our community will help foster a continuous reading habit and inject new joy and inspiration into your lifelong passion.
