Please note: We regret to inform you that the Amsterdam Book Club currently does not accept any new members, because the waitlists for our meetups are getting too long and we do not want to disappoint our members.

"Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." — Mark Twain.

There is nothing better than sharing the experience of a great book--whether it is an old favourite or a book you never would have read before. Join like-minded book lovers in Amsterdam to discuss the featured book--and other ideas--in a relaxed social setting.

The Amsterdam Book Club meetups are held in a member's home in Amsterdam, which is why we limit attendance to the meetups and do not allow members to RSVP with guests.

During every book club, attendees choose the book for a future book club. Bring your book suggestions and be prepared for a lively discussion and voting session.

We sometimes have a waiting list for popular books. If you have said "yes" and your plans have changed, please update your RSVP status in a timely fashion so that those members on the waiting list have enough time to 1) buy or borrow the book, and 2) read the book.

We know that life sometimes gets in the way and you must cancel at the last minute. If so, please be courteous and let the event host know that you will not attend. New members who are no-shows to their first meet up will be removed from The Amsterdam Book Club.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
