What we're about

Do you love to read, but can't seem to find the time to do so? Do you love any activities that revolve around books and literature? Are you looking to make some potential friends with fellow booklovers? If this sounds like you, then this could be the perfect group for you!

My goal for this group is to create a designated time where the only item on the agenda is to just sit down, read, and maybe have a cup of coffee or glass of wine. I'd like to set up a weekly day/time where fellow booklovers can get together at different locations and plan to just read some good books. This would also be the perfect time to exchange book recommendations and favorite book stores. Additionally, I would like to set up a monthly literature-themed outing. We could go to the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, have lunch at Kramerbooks & Afterwords, or any other places of interest!

Weekly meeting times were voted on by members, and meetups will be scheduled at these times.

All you need is yourself and a book! I have made this a recurring meeting, though there will be some sundays we won't meet (e.g. those around holidays). Hopefully I'll see you then! People who are new: This meetup happens weekly where we just get together with some coffee and read for however long you can stay. This can be 20 minutes or the full 2 hours, it doesn't matter. This time is for you to have some good, relaxing time, to read those books you've been meaning to get to with some like-minded people. I look forward to meeting you and checking out what everyone is reading! Sometimes we talk more than read and sometimes we read more than talk. Also, if you would like to bring any books you are done with, we can plan on starting a sort of book exchange between each other.
