PBC Guru has been a great way for me to re-ignite my own growth and my passion for learning. The pool of books we select from has been excellent; the weekly emails are concise and include links to related and valuable articles or videos. I’ve been able to finish several books, participate online and share what I’ve learned with my team too. This is a super development tool!

Online Book Clubs for Professional Societies

Engage your society members like never before, no matter where they are in the world, with a managed online book club. 

Virtual Book Clubs


Engage Your Membership Wherever They Are with a Virtual Professional Book Club


Books can be selected to meet almost any group's learning needs (or general interests). No matter your purpose and aims, we tailor your book club to what you and your participants are aiming for.

Effective Learning

Reading a book is one of the best ways to deeply learn and improve capabilities. Whether it’s a book on soft or hard skills for work or a novel that fosters new awareness, sparks curiosity, or builds empathy, books help people stretch their minds.


Our virtual programs work for groups from dozens to thousands. Whether you’re a company with dozens of people, a professional society with hundreds, or a university with thousands, we can tailor your program to where you are (and where you’re going).

Continuous Development

Whether your group consists of employees, alums, members, or patrons, participants will read new books on a regular basis allowing for ongoing growth, improved critical thinking, and a deeper relationship with your organization.


Whether it’s a company book club or one through another organization that’s just for fun, book clubs work best with a sense of social obligation. Our accountability tools and the schedule of a book club keep your participants engaged and on track with reading.

Social and Fun

Participants enjoy connecting with each other and benefit from developing a shared language. No matter your group, your organization type, and your aims, your people will benefit from the enjoyment of this social experience oriented around mutual growth.

“The Rutgers University Alumni Book Club is starting its third year with PBC Guru and we are very pleased with the return on investment.
