Over winter 2017 we trialed a new in store book club.  Over four months we read the read, shared and enjoyed 16 new release fiction titles:

Here’s what a few of our group members thought…

Thank you ladies for your hard work in putting this together. It was terrific.  The format was excellent.  The idea of mixing people into groups and those groups reading different titles worked really well – it gave me the confidence to speak about the books, where I may not have if I had been with someone I knew well…would have let them do the talking.  I would thoroughly recommend the Book Club to anyone who asks me.  Thank you!  (Sue)

Thank you for a fabulous 4 months.  Have loved meeting new avid readers and your enthusiasm is infectious.  I’ve loved the surprise aspect of the pick – like Christmas.  Format is great.  Also love the book release / events that I may not have known about or got online in time to attend (I came to see Jock Serong and Jane Harper).  Thank you again, will visit the bookshop even more as I feel part of the family now.  (Christine)

Very well structured and thought out. It ran very well and I thoroughly enjoyed getting my new book wrapped and the excitement of opening a present I don’t know what it would be!!!  Loved the diversity of the group and thank you for the opportunity to be a part of it.  Thank you for your time and energy you all put in to make it so enjoyable for us.  The next group is so lucky!  (Kristy)

Thoroughly enjoyed the book club meetings and sharing thoughts, ideas, questions with other book lovers.  Great format for a book club.  Thank you! (Mary)

The Book club has been a wonderful inclusion in my life and my love for reading new literature has been rejuvenated. I have always loved your book store, the expertise you and your staff provide is outstanding. (Katrina)

We plan to host a new Book Club cohort over Winter 2018, but are yet to decide on the ongoing format and details.  We hope to finalise these by March, with a view to a May start.

Spaces will again be very limited, but we are keeping a register of anyone interested in participating – please leave your details in store or email us at if you would like us to add your name to the list of interested parties.
