What is the Homesteaders’ Book Club?

The Homesteaders’ Book Club is a virtual group book club facilitated through a Facebook Group. It is open to anyone who is interested in living a more rustic, self-reliant life and wants to learn more on related topics.

Each season, we choose a book to read concurrently. The facilitator (Carrie from Homestead How-To) posts weekly questions in the Facebook group for participants to answer and discuss. The goal is to learn with and from each other, as well as from experts.

How does the Homesteaders’ Book Club Work?

It’s easy!

  • Join the Facebook Group and look out for announcements about book selections each season.
  • Choose whether you want to participate in each “read.” If you do, obtain a copy of the book by ordering online, getting it from your local bookstore, or checking it out of the library.
  • Start reading the book according to the schedule published by Homestead How-To.
  • Contribute to weekly discussions during the reading period by sharing constructive lessons learned, asking questions, and sharing your opinion about the book.

PS – you can check out our Amazon Storefront “Library” to see some of the great books we have read in the past!
