Welcome

The Bungee Book Club (BBC) was started April 2009. For nearly nine years now, we have come together to discuss books and share ideas. We completed our 36th book  in November 2018 — thus averaging nearly four books per year.

BBC members (a.k.a. Bungees, BBCniks, Bungestas) primarily come from across US Agency for International Development (US AID), but anyone can join. The only prerequisites are your love of reading and  your desire to discuss ideas.

In spring 2017, The BBC partnered with two distinguished USAID organizations, Women@AID and the USAID Library. These partnerships provide a unique opportunity to strengthen The BBC by bringing greater visibility to its book selections and enhancing the substance of our discussions through a broader range of ideas and perspectives.

This web site tells you all about how The BBC operates (Be a Bungee). It informs you of the books we have read (The BBC Book List & Resources) and offers various book related resources, viz. book reviews, interviews with the authors, TED talks, etc. Moreover, it is the place (Future Book Suggestions) where you can make suggestions of titles you think we might want to tackle as well as see what others have suggested.

Welcome aboard The BBC.
