What we're about
Are you unable to walk by a bookshop without going inside? Do you appreciate non-linear, difficult, inaccessible, downright frustrating literature that your friends have never heard of? Do your biceps bulge from carrying around 1000+pg tomes on public transport/beach holidays/family get-togethers? Are the walls of your house or favourite room lined and heaving with books read and unread?
If you answered "yes, that's me!" to one or more of these, you're likely a booksnob. And that's OK. So are we.
Come along to one of our meetups where we discuss unique and interesting books! We aim to be as pleasant and democratic about things as possible while sticking to the core tenets of booksnobbism, which are as follows:
- There are no maximum page limits. Big Big Books are very welcome.
- The book must be unique in some way. Does it fiddle with language in an interesting way? Is it labyrinthine in its plotting? Was it ahead of its time somehow? Is it undeservedly buried and unappreciated?
- Does the average 13 year old own it as an audiobook on their i-thingy? If not, great!
And that's it. Just join up if you like beer/wine/coffee/conversation and books.
