Other Ideas for Running Your UX Book Club

To help reach out to as many people as possible, and allow as many people to participate - no matter where they are in the world - we'd encourage each group to try and do some of the following:

  • Don't wait until you've got a big group before deciding on a date and book. Give people something concrete to think about when they're deciding whether to join.
  • Set up a Facebook group or a Google group for your area's book club. Add links to this wiki so people can find it.
  • Take photos at your events and post them to flickr - use uxbookclub as one of the tags.
  • Set up a ustream.tv account and stream your book club meetings live. This is really easy to do, and let's other people sit in.
  • Get everyone to write down the likes/dislikes on index cards and hand them in at the end. These can be written up and posted for others to see.
  • Print business cards for your group and take them around to local professional meetings to attract interest. Or, tuck them in relevant books at the bookstore and the library.
  • Involve a local Design school or use its premises to conduct the meeting.
  • Do you have any thoughts on what else we can do to share the experience beyond our own little groups?
  • Add your idea here!
