Book Reading 1 – Monday

The Book Reading Group is a lively, interesting group with good social interactions.

Scout & Guide HQ
2nd Monday of the month
10.30 am
  • Coordinator: Diane Piggin - 01695 577 837
  • Coordinator: Maggie Broughton - 01695 574138

We read one book a month,  supplied free of charge by Lancashire Libraries service from their Book Group collection. These are handed out at the previous meeting

All Future meetings will be in The Scout and Guide HQ at the U3A on the second MONDAY of the month at 10.30am.

We aim to include all attending members in the discussion, opening the meeting by listening to each member in turn make a brief comment about their likes or dislikes before moving on to look at the book in more depth.

We find ourselves reading books we wouldn’t normally choose, some we love, some we hate, some we never finish.  Often books disliked by the majority lead to the best discussion. What we all share is a love of reading.

Contact Diane if you wish to join the group or for more information.
