Do you love books?

Find yourself transported several lightyears away reading that favourite novel of yours?

Do you consider yourself a book worm? Or, a book worm of sorts? We are launching the Brisbane Geek Book Club, a book club that will meet monthly here in Brisbane! The book club will meet at various cafe's and other venues where we can discuss everything about our favourite books, what books we have read, share books, as well as the Book of the Month! The book club will encompass a relaxed atmosphere, where members can talk to eachother about books in general. As part of the event, the book of the month will be discussed, but will not be mandatory to attend. For those who did not read the book of the month, the discussion will be a good insight or review of the book in question.

The book club will encompass books of various genres, from Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction, and even comics, it will be a great place to discuss your literary adventures with other like-minded book worms!

Book of the Month!

Each month, we we will be having a 'book of the month', which will be a book where members, if they want to join in on the book of the month, will be given a title to read between book club meetups.

This meet-up we are discussing 'The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet' by Becky Chambers!

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.

Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.

Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy—exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs—an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.
