I have recently moved from Vancouver to Cork where I'm originally from, and I was unable to locate a book club in Cork city so I decided to start this online meetup! I was a member of two book clubs while living in Vancouver including the international club: The Girly Book Club. I enjoy reading a variety of books but have a particular interest in biographies and autobiographies.
This group is suited to reading enthusiasts who have some spare time and enjoy delving into books of any kind!
The aim is to have an online meetup (due to Covid restrictions) once a month on a weekday evening where attendees can engage in an open discussion around the topic of a book. You do not have to be based in Cork for this, so you can join from any time zone.
Sometimes I know that I struggle to find time and motivation to get through books, but being part of book clubs has helped me to stay motivated. If this is true for you, go ahead and join!
The meeting would typically begin with some general discussion, then a discussion around the topic of a book with pre-prepared questions, and ending with a decision on a book for the next meeting.
I would prefer not to have any rules, but, for the event to run smoothly I just have two! Please adhere to the following rules: 1, Respect! - Respect the opinions of other members; 2, RSVP! - Please let us know if you cannot make the event.
That's it! I look forward to meeting everyone soon!
