The Highly-Rated Book Group

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Welcome to the The Highly-Rated Book Group, one of the most unique and well-read book groups on LibraryThing!

The Highly-Rated Book Group strives to present books to its members which represent quality and thoughtfulness. Our books are chosen for their basis in history, as well as varied topics to interest you.

The Highly-Rated Book Group offers many unique things which encompass a higher-than average online book group reading experience:

*The group is run by volunteers who are voracious readers
*The timeline for each book read is clearly stated; you are welcome to read at your own pace and post whenever convenient to your schedule
*We offer supplemental reading material for each book. This can include: online videos, author interviews, online museum visits, recommended news articles, supplemental books and more.
*We offer prizes from our personal libraries and the sponsors we recruit.
*When possible, we invite experts to join our group to enhance our group reading experience.

We invite you to join our Book Group, and we guarantee you a GREAT Book Read.

The Highly-Rated Book Group is currently being co-chaired by TheTortoise and vintage_books.
