Welcome to Chichester Readers; a group of people who love books. The general idea is to meet every month or so, all having read the same book and to have a bit of a natter over a glass or two of wine. Marvellous.

Books we have read include:

To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris

 Beloved by Toni Morrison

On the Road by Jack Kerouac 

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

 Suspended Sentences by Patrick Modiano

Cousin Henry by Anthony Trollope

We Are Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler

The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan

The Red House by Mark Haddon

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins 

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey

A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson

Venice by Jan Morris

The Secret Scrpture by Sebastian Barry

Disgrace by J M Coetzee 

Poems That Make Grown Men Cry ed A & B Holden

Off the Road by Carolyn Cassady

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell


(For a full list of books we have read go to PAGES/WHAT HAVE WE READ?)


The Book Club has some guidelines which we follow or ignore as we choose. The “rules” are as follows:

1st Rule of Book Club: The readers choose the next read in a 'democratic' process 

2nd Rule of Book Club: You may talk about Book Club 

3rd Rule of Book Club: We don't choose a read that any of the readers have already read 


4th Rule of Book Club: Readers bring suggestions for the next read to the Meetup 


5th Rule of Book Club: We're happy to read anything as long as it is in paperback at a reasonable price

    "Sorry, away in Edinburgh visiting my daughter so will think of you all while I visit some festival events and browse the second hand bookshops. It will be an interesting­ read, worth visiting Knole and Sissinghurs­t if you have the time."
