Silent Book Club

Launching Thursday 9th January!

About

Silent book club (sbc) is akin to happy hour for introverts. It is a guilt-free way to block out time in your schedule to do nothing but read in companionable silence.

Of course, there is time for socialising if you so wish, as the silent reading time is sandwiched between dedicated time to chat about what you're reading, favourite and not-so authors, books or simply enjoy the company. Unlike traditional book clubs, everyone reads according to their own taste, this is a great way to discover new authors and spur conversation!

Alternatively, we have sourced a small selection of book club kits enabling people to read the same book and discuss.

Example

From 5.15pm - 5.30pm drop in grab a drink, some nibbles, share what you're reading if you wish and get settled.

Bell chimes at 5.30pm indicating silent reading time is commencing

Enjoy your dedicated silent reading time for an hour - no sharing those excellent quotes until the bell rings again!

Bell chimes at 6.30pm indicating silent reading is finished

Share a passage that resonated, feelings or thoughts that surfaced from what you've just read, listen to the discussion or head home and cook dinner, it's up to you!

At 7pm Silent book club evening concludes with the drawing of a random door prize.

Light refreshments provided.
