About this activity



Meets on the third Wednesday evening in every second month, with a light supper usually following.

This activity is for the men in the club to discuss books interesting to men which perhaps other book clubs don’t cater for. Each meeting is at a different member’s home to discuss books and authors which interest and entertain blokes in the club.

We choose one book recommended by a member who has read the book himself and we also agree on a prolific author, someone who has written more than a couple of books, to read any of their offerings. The choice of Lady authors is not excluded from Blokes Books either.

So a book and author every 2 months. The only criteria being all books chosen, they do not have to be the latest publications, should be freely available in local libraries and in local 2nd hand bookshops or op shops.

What has happened over the last 6 years is we have each been introduced to new authors and genres of books, which we otherwise would never have discovered which has been part of the success of our group.

Generally a group of 10 to 12 which is entertaining, educational, amusing and enduring.
