About Reading Groups for Everyone

Reading Groups for Everyone celebrates reading groups across the UK and is run by the book loving team at national charity The Reading Agency. Sign up your reading group today to access exclusive offers from publishers and the chance to win books to read and review for the website. Our monthly e-newsletter is the easiest way to hear about the latest news, offers and competitions from us!

Our reading groups meet in all kinds of places and are made up of all kinds of people. The one thing they have in common is that they love reading and talking about books.

Here at The Reading Agency we know how important reading for pleasure is and the positive difference it makes to our lives. Reading groups are a great way to make friends, feel connected and empowered and try books you’d never have come across otherwise. Read more about the impact of reading for pleasure in our report.
