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.
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. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your set of books.
Sets of books for reading groups are currently only available to be collected from Library Headquarters in Oldmeldrum. Once you've been notified that your books are ready, book a time to collect them in line with social distancing procedures.
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!
