This is the Silicon Valley chapter of the international Silent Book Club.
We welcome all types! Everyone brings their own book.
Meet ups will consist of approx. 15 minutes of socializing and then one hour of silent reading. Afterwards we will have another 15 min or longer of socializing. RSVP to the next event here!
There should be a catchy write up here about books, wine, comfy couch and good company but I'm only a reader, not a writer. Fortunately I can provide logistical information.
My co-host, Kati Parker, and I settled on the 3rd Thursday of the month and set up corresponding events here. It would be nice if you RSVP but it isn't a requirement!
No assigned readings, no pressure to finish a book on time or read a book you have no time or inclination to read anyway.
This group is for those who just want to relax and read in the company of other bookish folk. While silence is the main game during the allotted hour, for those so inclined to do so there will be time made to share what you are reading, and discuss all things literary or just get to know one another.
Other activities added to a meet may include a book swap or other literary events. Please feel free to recommend a favorite park, coffee shop, or other favorite reading spot!
