A reading group is a great way for people who enjoy reading to get together in a relaxed setting, exchange views, try out new authors and types of fiction and non-fiction they might not otherwise have considered and generally share their love of reading with other like minded people.
Our libraries currently host a number of reading groups all across Aberdeenshire. Follow the link below to find out more about the groups running in your area.
Starting a reading group – hints and tips
We support many book groups across Aberdeenshire, so whether you are part of an independent group or one of the many groups who meet in our libraries we have a vast selection of titles for you to choose from. Once you have selected your chosen titles just get in touch with your local library who will be happy to place a reservation for you.
And finally –
Remember that reading groups are not academic style literary discussions
They are not about the right and wrong interpretation of a book.
Only you know how you feel about a book, no one else can be an expert about your reading experience.
It is possible to have a poor experience with a “great” book and vice versa and it’s ok to give up and say you didn’t enjoy it.
It’s all about reading for pleasure and enjoyment and not what you think you should be reading!
