Reading Groups for Everyone letter, flyers and posters

We have nearly 2,000 reading groups and book clubs registered on Reading Groups for Everyone – which is really great but we know that there are many, many more out there. Our research found that there were 10,000 reading groups linked to libraries alone!

So we’ve been thinking about how we can help you to spread the word about Reading Groups for Everyone to encourage more people to join the website and put their reading groups and book clubs up. The more groups we have on the site the stronger the messages will be about all the good things reading groups and book clubs are doing for people and communities.

We have written an invitation letter for reading groups to encourage more groups run by private individuals to sign up and join the site. So if you run a group or know someone who does please read this letter or pass it on.

We have also produced some Reading Groups for Everyone A5 flyers for you to print out on A4. You can use these to promote the website within your reading groups and to the people that visit your building, your friends, colleagues and round local organisations.

There is also an A4 poster, which can be printed and displayed in your library, shops, cafes, museums, schools, etc – anywhere where proprietors are happy for you to spread the word.

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...
