This is a group for anyone in the wider Barnet area who loves reading and is looking for others to discuss books on a monthly basis, while having a cup of coffee (and breakfast if you wish!) on a Sunday morning in High Barnet. All readers are welcome.
We discuss mainly contemporary fiction, alternating between very recent books that are being discussed a lot or are award nominees, and older books that have stood the test of time. On occasion we have read some non-fiction too.
Feel free to join at any time, we welcome new members.
Also feel free to send us book recommendations: we are always interested in discovering new books that might make a good book club discussion.
Please note the group's rules:
• Members can initially attend for free. After a period of time though, if they decide they want to commit to attending more regularly, they will be expected to contribute towards covering the group's expenses.
• If a group member RVSPs that they will come to a meetup and does not attend without letting us know in advance, they will be removed from the group. This is due to the limited number of readers attending each meetup: if you say you will attend and don't, you are taking the place of someone else who might have wanted to come.
• We expect members who attend meetups to have read the book, or at least most of the book. While we are always happy to meet new people, this group is meant as a place to discuss books, not as a place to primarily socialise. If a member attends meetups on several occasions without having read the book, the co-organizers may have to remove them from the book club, as there are limited places and sometimes a waiting list for atetndance.
