Why We’ve Come Back To Book Groups

One of the things that COVID changed in our lives was a reckoning with how we spend our time. Many people are re-evaluating what brings them joy or expands their experience and then are making choices to change their job, where they live, or what they do in their free time. At Bookshop, we believe that book groups are one activity that has withstood this post-pandemic test. Although many of us lamented how, for a time, our lively book groups became yet another Zoom session, we still came back to our groups in the end.

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.
