Are book clubs extinct?

I love how teenagers are into expressing themselves now through blogging. Back in the day we had diaries and journals. I think my diary was in a little box with a lock on it.
But now they are blogging and video journaling.  With the topics ranging from everyday life of a teenager to fashion, music and yes even books.

Here is one blog post I found by a teen about book clubs she is attending.  She asks in this post the all time question. Are book clubs for old people? Are they??  Are books clubs extinct? Read the post and tell me what you think.

Tonight I went to a book club meeting for Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. It was a small group of about 7 people of which I was the youngest. Everyone else was in their 40s-60s. When I mentioned this to my sister, she laughed and explained that book clubs/groups are for old people. I went to argue with her when I realized that I was the only young person that I knew who went to these things. Since I’m planning on eventually leading my own book clubs, I now have to wonder are book clubs among younger people impossible or if Facebook has completely changed the definition and purpose of a book club for forever.
Am I one of the only young people left that wants to meet face to face to discover and discuss books? I guess I’ll find out in the next couple of weeks when I hold my very first book club event at the end if this month.

A Growing and Thriving Book Club…
