Reading Friends

Reading Friends brings people together to read, share stories, meet new friends, and have fun. We use reading – whether books, magazines, newspapers, or anything else – to start everyone chatting.

Each week we have agreed a ‘theme’ to get us started, but as the conversation flows, we often end up talking about something completely different. The time flies and we definitely have fun!

Whilst we can’t meet in person, we are running our Reading Friends sessions on Zoom. But we are really looking forward to getting back to catching up in our Idea Stores and Libraries.

Mondays 3pm-4pm on Zoom

So, to join us it’s just a few easy steps:

1 - Drop us an email at and we will send you the details to get in to the Zoom meeting, if you have never used zoom before or need a bit of help just let us know and we will give you a bell to talk you through getting set up.

2 - Get the kettle on, make yourself a cuppa and grab a biscuit

3 - Join the conversation.

That’s it! And don’t worry if you are not a regular reader, or if you’ve never read as a hobby before, we can make recommendations for books that can introduce you to the joy of reading for pleasure and if you aren’t a confident reader, we can help with that too.
