Silent Book Club - Portland, Maine
There’s no assigned reading, Silent Book Club is about taking time out of your busy schedule to simply relax and read. While some silent reading parties have a strict No Talking! rule, NO ONE will be shushed at Silent Book Club. Some of us like to share book recommendations, while others prefer solitude. This is a space for like-minded people who love to read, share book recommendations, and socialize over a cup of tea or coffee. Here’s how we plan to spend our time: 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. People arrive, order food/drinks, share what you’re reading. And a book swap for those interested. Bring a gently used book and take a book. 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. - Quiet reading hour All are welcome! Make the world a little quieter and a little bigger. We look forward to reading with you!

What we're about

Silent Book Club is happy hour for introverts. Bring a book, bring a friend, and order a drink. Then settle in for an hour or two of quiet reading with fellow book lovers. There's no assigned reading or discussion guides—that's the "silent" part of our book club—but we do like to share book recommendations and meet like-minded readers. While some silent reading parties have a strict No Talking! rule, no one will be shushed or shamed at Silent Book Club. All readers are welcome—even e-readers.
