Online Book Group Blog

Meeting - 30th April 2020

A new addition to the QLDC Libraries events programme is Book Group, meeting weekly during alert level 3 via Zoom. This is a great way to connect with others in our district who love books, discovering new authors and sharing what they are reading.

With no set book to discuss the conversation flowed organically delving in and out of what attendees are currently reading, books and authors enjoyed over time and general book chat. This will be an ongoing formula for this book group there will be no set book to read unless agreed upon by the group, we will simply share and discuss what we are enjoying or have enjoyed.

There are plenty of recommendations to explore from our first catch up. These are listed below with links to accessing them to read now or to place a hold for future reading.

Thanks so much to those who joined in this inaugural Zoom Book Group it was lots of fun and we look forward to our next meeting, Thursday 7th May 10am, follow the link below and pull up a seat grab a cuppa and join the chat.
