What we’re about

Welcome to Bookish KL
A Book Club for puans in the Peninsula

Are you a bookworm looking for new friends, be introduced to new people and (possibly more importantly) new books? Join me!

This club is to focus on a roster of recommendations from the club members themselves.

*Note: this group is for women identifying only. I’m aiming to create a safe space sisterhood 💃

• The first Friday of every month a book will be chosen by the next person in line
• You will have one month to complete the book (or minimum 70%)
• Meetup will happen the last Saturday of the month (assigned recommender to decide online or physical space)

Book rules:
• The book must be new to all members (including the person making the recommendation)
• Book must be < 300 pages
• All genres and topics are accepted
• Members can consume it in whatever medium they prefer (physical, e-book, audiobook)
• Members are individually responsible for getting their copy of the book

Meetup rules:
• The recommender is responsible to run the discussion
• One person at a time, please refrain from talking over a speaker
