Cricklereaders Book Group
Cricklereaders meet every six weeks, usually in person at the library, to discuss books chosen on rotation by members of the group. Sometimes people even come along if they haven't read the book - and that's ok. It's a social group as much as anything, and all readers are welcome, no matter where they're based.

What’s on Your Reading List?
Want to read more but not sure what? Do you read the same kind of books over and over and need a change? A book group can be the answer.
Expand your reading horizons
I don’t know about you, but I end up reading the same old, same old over and over. But my book group has really widened my horizons and made me read things I would not normally choose. It’s been a revelation!
Meet other local readers
Since we’re not getting outdoors much, it’s difficult to meet up with friends and neighbours. Cricklereaders is the way forward!
Keep active and entertained in lockdown
Lockdown weeks can all blend into one another. Cricklereaders will give us something to look forward to!
