What we're about

New to Edinburgh? Or just want to discuss great books with like-minded friends? The concept is simple. We’re a global book club for likeminded women to discuss great books! All members of the book club read the same book over the same period; members then meet up in their respective cities at the end of each month to discuss the book and exchange views. This forum provides a rare, and relaxed atmosphere for women to meet other like-minded women over a glass of wine and share a common passion. 
Check out our home site to find out more about how we are taking over the world - one book at a time!

5k Parkrun & Brunch

Needs a location

To give myself some motivation to get back out running again I've decided to do this Parkrun in September. If anyone else needs a bit of a push or just fancies a Saturday morning run you are welcome to join me. I'm hoping to do some training over the next few months and will attempt to run the 5k!

Just register here to get your bar code which you need to bring along on the day:

Hope a few of you can make it!
