What is a book group?

Do you enjoy talking about books and sharing your ideas with other readers? Do you want to join a book group, or start a new one, but just don’t know where to start? Why not join Book Groups Tasmania? It's free, and there is a range of books to choose from.

A Book Group can also be called a Book Club or a Reading Group. It is where a group of people meet to discuss a book in common.

Book Groups Tasmania

Book Groups Tasmania (BGT) is a free service offered by Libraries Tasmania. Groups who register with this service receive multiple copies of the same book at regular intervals, usually monthly or bi-monthly. The books are delivered together in a bag or bags and you nominate a secretary to collect and distribute them to group members.

You can choose from over 500 titles and BGT adds new titles each year. BGT does the hard work in getting all your members the same book at the same time – so there will be no more scrambling about trying to find a particular book and rushing to read it!

The Book Group Tasmania team comprises of Tim, Jane and Julian and they are based in Hobart. The service is statewide though, and you nominate your local library as the collection/return point for the bag of books.

How often you meet, what you discuss and where you meet is up to you and your group. BGT provides you with the books and the rest is up to you.
