The naked truth about the books we read!

"Never apologize for your reading taste."
(Betty Rosenberg's First Law of Reading)

stack of books with tea things BookBuggs is a monthly drop-in discussion group for book lovers who enjoy sharing their reviews, thoughts, and opinions about what they've been reading with fellow readers. The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 PM.

Each attendee is given the opportunity to spend 5-10 minutes talking about books that they love (or hate), sharing information and impressions about fiction and nonfiction works and authors.

A worksheet for making notes prior to our meetings is available on our web site for those who like to prepare ahead! No one is required to speak, though; listening is just fine, too. Questions, comments, and additional information from other group members will be welcomed at the discretion of each speaker. Please be sure to have the correct title and author of each book that you "talk". Everyone is invited to bring along a notebook to record future "reads" that interest them.

No registration is necessary. Welcome to BookBuggs!

BookBuggs is modeled on a long running book group based at the Springfield (MA) City Library. Our thanks to Springfield Librarian Ann Keefe for her help and advice!
