What we're about

Bangalore Book Club [BBC] is an initiative to provide a platform for book lovers to meet and exchange their reading experiences.

BBC has a scheduled meet-up that happens every second & fourth saturday of every month at 3.45 PM. The meet-up venue will be announced from time to time.

It is hoped that apart from enabling members of this group to share and get to know more, it would also help in establishing a mutually helpful book-reading community.
