Reading groups

Online Reading Groups – join in from home

Our reading groups are informal and relaxed occasions where we get together in the bookshop to discuss the book of the month (that we’ve read before the meeting).

We meet up in our cosy bookshops and enjoy a proper brew, some cake, and great discussions.

We are currently running four regular reading groups that meet up in all three bookshops in Uppsala, Stockholm, and Göteborg: Modern Fiction, Classics, Science Fiction, and the Fantasy reading group.

In Uppsala and Göteborg, we also have a Crime reading group.

In Stockholm and Göteborg, the Queer reading group meets up once a month.

Each meeting is a separate event, so there’s no need to commit to an entire semester of reading groups. Join us when you have the time, and the book of the month interests you.

How do I get invitations to upcoming reading groups?

The best way to keep informed of upcoming reading groups is to sign up for the newsletter from one of our shops (Uppsala, Stockholm, or Göteborg) and check the boxes for the reading groups you are interested in. You’ll then get invites to upcoming reading group meetings for those reading groups. Sign up for the newsletter at:


How do I sign up for a meeting?

Just get in touch with the shop hosting the meeting and sign up. Or drop in if you’re a local. Pay the group fee at the meeting. (And if you can’t come to the shop to buy the book, just let us know and we’ll sort it.)
