We're a group based in Rochester and surrounding area for anyone who loves books and wants to meet once a month to choose books to read as a Group as well as share their past, present and future reading experiences together over a cuppa or pint in a relaxed friendly environment! We have a varied membership of both men and women of all ages and backgrounds and our additional quirky 'reading related' social events offer an added 'twist' and the chance to expand your social life and maybe make some new friends along the way too!
So if you are local to Rochester and interested in being an active member of a friendly book club, meeting regularily in a relaxed atmosphere, to discuss, review and vote on our monthly book choices with the added option of extra socialising at our additional light hearted fun events too then this is the group for you.
Usually meeting Sunday Afternoons and/or Wednesday Evenings to suit workers and non-workers alike plus some social events, from time to time, other Evenings and Afternoons too for fellow readers from all walks of life.
Come Join us, you'll be very welcome :)
