What we're about


Slowing the spread of Coronavirus to help our amazing NHS cope is something we can ALL play a part in. We must cancel our meetings for the moment and convene in the digital world to support eachother and champion great reading!

Please head over time our new Facebook group.



This is a friendly, brand new book club for ladies in Cumbria.

The club is inspired by by The London Girly Book Club (although not an official branch).

It's a club for female fiction lovers to gather to discuss interesting books and, just as importantly, have a good giggle - often cocktails, wine or cake are involved.

The books on the reading list are not as 'heavy' as many book clubs. The odd classic will make it on the list but in general the books are easy going with universal appeal.

Message from the host:

I've just moved to Cockermouth and can't find a replacement for The Girly Book Club that I was a member of in London. There must be other like minded ladies looking for a similar social group so I've decided to launch a branch of book club in Cumbria.

The meetings will be free and on a weekday evening and held in a nice pub/bar that we can reserve a suitable area in. I suggest alternating the meetings between Cockermouth, Keswick and Grasmere initially as that covers a reasonably wide catchment area.

To make life easy, we'll use the official Girly Book Club's reading list for the first 3 months and then take a members vote about bringing in local authors or going marvick! So - if this sounds like your kind of club, press the join button now! Anyone keen to get involved in the organising, drop me a message. It's not a lot of work but some local knowledge on venues could come in handy for a Cumbria newbie! Happy reading and hope to meet you soon. Kate
