ESL Book Club Books

Would you like to run an ESL Book Club with your classmates, your students, or your library visitors?

Three ESL book club reading books from The Book Next Door

Three ESL Book Club readers are now available:

  • The English Chip (intermediate, original fiction, fun and compelling story)
  • Blood Kind (intermediate original fiction, fun and dramatic story)
  • A Lady’s Visit to the Gold Diggings of Australia in 1852-3 (upper intermediate, adapted history/memoir, with camping, bushrangers and GOLD!)

Each book has a small illustration at the start of each chapter, and Book Club discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Read, discuss, read, discuss – there’s lots to say!

The three books are now available in two formats;

  1. As a paperback ‘library’ reader.
  2. In pdf version, which teachers can share with students as a photocopy, on screen, or online. (Yes, why not an online book club?)

You can find the paperbacks at your local language bookstore or library supplier. If you’re a student, ask your librarian! The links to the audio are here.

You can find the pdf versions on the PayHip store – where anyone can download two sample chapters and try them out!

The stories (without the Book Club questions) are also still available as ESL Easy Read e-books!
