読書クラブ 会話 – Book Club Conversation
Hey John, can I talk to you for a minute?
Sure, what’s up?
I wanted to let you know about a book club I joined a couple months ago. I know you do a lot of reading so I thought you might want to come with me next month.
Oh, that sounds like fun. When does the group meet?
Usually the last Saturday of the month at 9:30 in the evening. Is that too late for you?
No, I think that’s ok. What do you talk about in the group?
Well, every month we choose a new book and then during the next meeting we discuss it.
What book are you reading now?
The Kite Runner.
I’ve heard that’s a good book. What’s it about?
It is a good book. I’m almost finished. The book is about a boy who grows up in Afghanistan during the 1980s. It’s called the Kite Runner because the main character takes part in a kite flying competition.
That sounds really interesting. I’d love to come.
Ok, great. The next meeting isn’t for another two weeks, so you still have time to read the book.
1. What sounds like fun?
2. How often are books chosen?
3. What is the Kite Runner about?
4. What does ISBN mean?
5. What was the last book you read about?
Here is an example of a good answer to the question of what title you last read:
“The last book I read was Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. Somehow, I missed reading that classic while in school and a friend of mine thought I would enjoy Whitman. After a few pages, I became really enthralled with how he could execute sharp commentaries as well as gentle subtleties in a single passage.”
If you cannot fit your relevant skills into your answer naturally, don’t worry about it. This question allows you the chance to show how effectively you communicate, so focus more on the book and why you read it.
