Book groups are a great way of discovering new books and authors, and are a fun way of socialising and meeting people. We support over 700 groups with a great choice of reads. Each group is given the facility to borrow as many copies as they need in the format they prefer, so long as they are available. Ask your local library for more details or to help you find a group to join.
Resources for book groups
We regularly produce lists of titles we think book groups will enjoy. These lend themselves to group discussion, are available in larger quantities and are often in a variety of formats.
You can use the links below to explore more titles your book group may like to try:

where we have book trailers and interviews with bestselling authors.
The discussion takes place over an entire weekend and focuses on a single author. Previous discussions have focused on Terry Pratchett, Dan Brown and Martina Cole.
Upcoming discussion: William Boyd
In 1983 William Boyd was selected by Granta Magazine as one of the most promising young British writers. Thirty years later he’s a veteran of 11 novels and a number of screen plays, has won numerous awards, and was selected to be the new writer for James Bond.
So what do you think about Boyd’s writing? Which books did you like best? Any to avoid? Was he right to take on Bond?
Join the discussion from 6pm on Friday 10 January 2014 and share your thoughts with others.
