Celebrate National Reading Group Day

National Reading Group Day has been postponed until Wednesday 28 September.

There isn’t long to go until National Reading Group day on 14 September, when we invite you to celebrate reading groups with us. We love reading groups – how they bring us together with other people, introduce us to new books and helps us to enjoy our books even more.

This year we asked reading groups to share their recommendations and we can’t wait to share the results with you on 14 September, so watch this space!

Get involved

Everyone can get involved in celebrating National Reading Group Day! Here are a few ideas, but we’d also love to hear what you’re planning on doing by leaving a comment below.

1. Share what you love about your reading group and the books you’ve read by posting a picture on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using #NationalReadingGroupDay and tagging @readingagency.

2. Hold a reading group meeting (it doesn’t need to be on the day!) and ask everyone to bring a friend.

3. Chat with your reading group about the books that you’ve read and loved over the past year.

4. Sign up for our monthly newsletter, the best place to hear about the latest news, offers and competitions for your group.

Watch out more more exciting news from the Reading Groups for Everyone team as we get closer to the big day.

The Radio 2 Book Club on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show

The BBC Radio 2 Book Club announced on 24 January that its new home is on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show. The Radio 2 Book Club will feature a wide range of titles and authors, recommending great reads from both new and much-loved writers, encouraging listeners to perhaps try out a genre they might not have read before, and share their opinions and insights on the titles and great reads they’re enjoying right now.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
