The Avid Reader Book Club meets the fourth Monday of each month at 7:30 pm at The Avid Reader Bookstore at 617 Second Street, downtown Davis.

This group of avid readers has been meeting for several years now. Join us for some great reads and lively discussion. We read everything from fiction to non-fiction and are always looking for interesting books on and off the bestseller lists. The Avid Reader bookstore in Davis will be providing the month's book club picks at 20% off for anyone interested whether you are a member or not.

2008-06-07 17:24:08   Yeah, just show up and be ready to talk (or listen, if you haven't read the book). There is also a private (more serious) book club that will be meeting starting later this month. Message me if you're interested in that one. —SunjeetBaadkar

2009-06-06 10:00:06   The list above is a bit outdated. Can anyone tell me if the book club still happening? If so, what are the books for the next few months? I've been looking for a book club to join! —everdrw


2011-10-17 13:17:31   Last meeting we discussed The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It was a great book selection even for me as a non-scientist. I love reading these types of selections since they force me to read books I may have otherwise not picked up. I have to say that I liked this selection so much that I have given this book as a gift to a few friends already. Looking forward to the next great read. —VeronikaMonell


2011-11-09 10:58:03   Hi, I am interested in joining your bookclub. Would I just show up at your next meeting on 11/28/11? I will purchase the book and have it read by meeting time. I've never read anything by Orhan Pamuk before so it should be exciting and new. —AlisaTell


2011-12-11 16:01:01   Alisa - I'm glad you came out. Sorry we were late on a response but there's no need to sign up or anything before new members come. Anyone is welcome anytime. See you next time! —RachelW


2012-03-14 21:25:08   Alisa - I think I confused you with another new member who joined on the same month you had proposed coming. My apologies and I do hope you will be able to join us sometime. We are always interested in new members. Cheers! —RachelW
