Who are we? We are a book club which encourages its members to lead the group the way they would like. Our club was born on Meetup in the dark depths of Winter 2012, as a way to meet new people and discover great books over candle-lit warm drinks.
After a hiatus on Facebook, we have come back to Meetup because we want to reach a wider audience and Meetup sends gentle reminders that are less like the spam that Facebook can create. Until we're happy with the level of engagement on here, the Facebook group will remain open.
How we work We have a monthly poll to select the book for the next month, which is made up of suggestions from our members. So whether it's a classic you've always wanted to read, a book you love or something that caught your eye in the bookstore, it's up to you.
Discussions will start on the book we have read that month but inevitably spread to other cultural topics such as films, plays and music. So please come along and join us for a beer/coffee/glass of wine and open your mind to some books you probably wouldn't have dreamed of reading!
