Hey there, Peoria Readers, welcome to our book club. Come on in, grab a cup of coffee and have a seat. We are hear to explore great books, have fun discussions and meet new friends.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Q: When do you meet? A: Second Monday of the month at 6:30.  Please check the schedule, as this sometimes changes
  • Q: Can I come occasionally? A: Yes! You aren't expected to come every month. It's nice if you can, but if you only are able to come occasionally, that's fine too.
  • Q: How do you choose the books? A: Each month one active book club member hosts the event and chooses the book.
  • Q: Any criteria for the books? A: We mostly read recent fiction. We'd like the books to be available in paperback and in print, so no brand new hardbacks. It's also a bonus if the book is available for the Kindle, since many of us now have one.
  • Q: Are there membership fees?  We ask each active member to pay $5 per year to cover the $144 fee to maintain the Meetup site.  However, feel free to wait to see if you feel you will be active in the group before you pay.  We also ask people to chip in a couple of dollars to cover the room rental and encourage people to purchase something from the coffee house/location we are at.
