Read with friends

At Silent Book Club® there's no assigned reading. SBC members gather in bars, cafés, bookstores, libraries, and online to read together in quiet camaraderie.

All readers are welcome—ebooks or audiobooks, poetry or prose, fiction or non-fiction... it's BYOBook.

Welcome to introvert happy hour!
