Oxford Book Club

Does anyone know of a book club in Oxfordshire?  I have tried Googling and haven't come up with anything much... I don't really know where you go to find such groups...

Thanks!

Most public libraries run book groups, so try that route first. Personally, I don't really like library book groups because most of them choose the books for you.

Do you live right in Oxford, or in a smaller village or town? If it's the latter, try your local village hall, shop or post office to see if there are any notices up about a book group.

Alternately, you could start your own, which is what I did. Put up a notice at your local village hall or post office and maybe a notice in the free listings section of your local paper. Easy!

(I've started book groups in both places I've lived in the UK - the first one started about 9 years ago and even though I've been gone for 3 years, it's still going strong! And the second one, to which I belong now, is also flourishing!)

Good luck to you!

Have you tried meetup.com? That's usually a good place to find groups like that.

Hi Oxford,
Your post came up when I was searching for a book club in Oxford. I know you posted a little while ago but I was wondering if you found anything.
