This is a Ladies only social group and book club!  I intend for this book club to be a group of casual book readers that want to get together to discuss books and have fun. We will read a variety of books and meet at a variety of places. If you enjoy books but also want to socialize, then this is the group for you!  Please note - this book club is exactly as described above - casual.  If you are looking for a book club that talks about the book in depth for extended periods of time, this is not the group for you.  We are primarily here to socialize with other book lovers!



Young , Professional and Fun ladies in their 20s - 40s. * Must be at least 21 to join. We drink alcohol at our meetings so if you are against drinking, this may not be the group for you.  (You are by no means required to drink, but must respect other member's decisons to do so.)  This is not a young mother's group. If you are mostly interested in children related groups or discussion, there are several available on Meetup.  This is not one of them.


We read fun and engaging books and go to happy hours.

We read all types of genres  so if you are extremely religious or easily offended, this may not be the group for you.

Books include non-fiction (biographies, memoirs) and all kinds of fiction including (but certainly not limited to) general fiction, historical fiction, comedy, thrillers / mystery, gothic fiction, romance / romantic comedy, and the occasional science fiction work.

HAPPY HOURS: We have been to happy hours all over from Dublin, Easton, Clintonville, Worthington, Hilliard, etc. 


Various locations throughout the Columbus area, primarily Dublin.  90% of the Meetups are in Dublin.


Ladies join who are fun and like to socialize and make new friends!  If this sounds like you, then join us to meet some new people and have fun!


At least 3-5 times per month month, usually a weekday around 5:30 or 6:00.  Occasional weekend book clubs.

Please note, members who are inactive (do not attend a Meetup or visit the Meetup page) for more than 6 months or repeatedly no show / last minute cancel will be removed.  Thank you! :)
