3. Attend a Book Club: Joining a book club is a great way to connect with other readers and discuss books. Look for a local book club in your community or join an online book club.

4. Write a Book Review: Share your thoughts on a book by writing a review. You can post your review on social media, a blog, or a book review website. Your review can help others decide whether or not to read the book.

5. Support Independent Bookstores: Independent bookstores are vital to the literary community. You can help support your local independent bookstore by buying books from them or attending their events.
