What we're about


Our group may have reached its limit here, but worry not because we are also on goodreads.com! There are less restrictions on our goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/603899-socializing-with-books) page so please join Socializing with Books there too, same group and meetings!

Our group is for anyone interested in reading various kinds of literature, fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, and the rest. Everyone welcomed, as long as you are genuine about reading, showing up, and contributing to the conversation. We read a book and meet once a month. We meet at local libraries, over drinks, coffee shops, and other group-friendly venues, but occasionally find ourselves welcomed at our fellow readers' cozy homes.

We meet predominantly in Pasadena. We meet all over Los Angeles/SGV when we have our "Book Club Outings."


We welcome book recommendations, that is actually how we choose our books. However, proper etiquette if your book is chosen for a certain month means you will show up. You risk being removed if you do not attend the meeting for your recommendation without advanced notice.

Please look through the Discussions Tab to vote or suggest on the following Months upcoming books.

***Note: Many venues have limited seating and we try our best to save tables big enough for the people who RSVP "yes." If you RSVP "yes" to an event, it means you ARE showing up. If you change your mind, please change your RSVP to "no" at least 1 day in advance. If you do not show up to an event that you RSVP "Yes" to without any formal notice, or you cancel at the last minute (4-hours or less before the meeting), you will be marked as a "No Show." Three "No Shows" and we will be removing members.
