This is a group for young people (both men and women welcome) in the Wallingford area, ages 21-35, who are looking for a casual and fun book club! We will pick one book a month, and then meet at someone's home or a local restaurant. We'll chat about the book, enjoy some good food and drinks, and have plenty of time to socialize.

This isn't your average book club - we're not about following strict guidelines or answering pre-set book club questions. This is about reading something fun and then having a reason to get together, socialize, talk about the book, and spend time getting to know each other!

Each month we choose a new genre to read, which has really encouraged some of us to read outside our normal book preferences. A few options for each genre are proposed, and then members vote on what they'd most like to read. We've read genres like sci-fi, memoir, historical fiction, banned books, and mystery (just to name a few). The group is always open to new suggestions.

We've also started adding in other fun activities between book club gatherings, including:

    Game nights

    Visits to wineries and breweries

    Going to local fairs and festivals

    Checking out local bars and restaurants

    Touring art and science museums

    Taking art and cooking classes

    Spending time outdoors

    and more!

If you're looking to read great books, try new things, and make awesome friends in the process, this is the group for you!
