Book Groups at Bookshop Santa Cruz
Book Group Benefits!
Bookshop Santa Cruz is excited about our benefits for our wonderful book group enthusiasts. Our Book Ends email newsletter includes a monthly coupon that you can use (either in-store or online) to save 15% on your book group's next read. Here's how:
IN-STORE: Print out a copy of the coupon from your e-mail, fill it out, and bring it with you when you purchase your book group selection. To guarantee that your title is on hand, please call us ahead of time (831-423-0900) and we'll put a copy on hold or order it for you.
ONLINE: Use the monthly coupon code on our website to save 15% on your book group selection. You can choose in-store pick-up or have your order shipped to your door. Book Ends also features great reading group recommendations from our staff, plus announcements about our mixers and author events that are great fits for book groups. Enroll in the Book Ends email: Visit our e-mail sign-up page and click the SafeSubscribe link, or visit the store and fill out one of our orange email sign-up forms and drop it off at either the registers or the information desk. Please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
The book group wall has returned! Look for staff recommendations and book group selections on the book group wall, located in the fiction room.
Book Group Mixers
We also offer Book Group Mixers several times a year. These mixers are a great way to meet other individuals interested in joining an existing book group or starting a new one. The events feature presentations by authors and representatives of publishing houses, lots of great giveaways, raffle prizes, and staff recommendations of great book group titles. Subscribe to our Book Ends e-mail to learn about upcoming mixers.
Want to join a book group?
Many local book clubs use Meetup.com to organize meetings. Here is the Meetup page for Santa Cruz area book groups.
Young adults should check out SC Teen Book Crew, a group of teenage readers at San Lorenzo Valley High School and at Santa Cruz High School. Join the crew, or ask how you can start a book crew at your own high school!
