Crediton Reading Group
|Meetings Held:||Morning group:Every 4 weeks, Friday morning 10.30am - 11.30am
Evening group: Every 2 months, Friday evening 7pm - 8pm
The group reads a wide variety of books, mostly fiction but with some non-fiction along the way. We all read the same title chosen from a wide selection available as sets from Devon Libraries’Choice List
Meetings are informal and take place over a cup of coffee. There is no pressure to offer an opinion or finish the book, and liking the book is definitely not compulsory - some of the best discussions have occurred when we offer different views and perspectives! About 30-45 minutes are given over to discussing the chosen title after which members are encouraged to offer recommendations to the rest of the group.
Most members have discovered 'new' authors and broadened their reading horizons, often enjoying something they would never have ordinarily picked off the shelf.
The group selects the titles from the Devon Libraries’Choice List. Our meetings are every two months allowing our busy members to read at least a book during that time or for the other members to read extra books on top of our selected title.
Our meetings are in the library when the library is closed over a glass of fruit juice or wine with nibbles. We spend a big chunk of time discussing ideas from the book, the most diverse range of views, the better!
