Rest Less Book Club
Welcome to the Rest Less Events Book Club! This is a friendly, welcoming group of bookworms spread across the globe who meet online every month to connect over a shared love of reading. Everyone is welcome and we love getting to meet new members in our community Book Club Coffee Mornings. Together, we also attend Rest Less Book Club Events with fantastic writers and scholars.
So if you are a bookworm and want to meet others who enjoy reading, this is the Rest Less Events group for you!

Join our Events
Every month, we invite an author or expert to join us for a Question and Answer session about the Book of the Month, with an opportunity to ask your own questions. We also have Coffee Mornings and Afternoons where you can connect with other book club members, having interesting discussions about what you're currently reading.Register for Events

Previous book club discussions have included 'Guilty Pleasures', 'Must-Read Books' and 'Summer Reads'. Get in touch with [email protected] if you'd like to set up a discussion group. This could be a one-off discussion or a regular group (e.g. Jane Austen adaptations every month).Get in touch
Book Club FAQs
Our Book Club is designed so that you can dip in and out of it each month. One Book is set each month. We have 2 key events around the Book of the Month: the 'Coffee and Chats' and Q&A Events. You can attend one or both. The Q&A Events are recorded, so you can catch up in your own time up to 7 days after the event.
Yes, we will have separate breakout rooms for those who haven't read the book. However, please read event description to check that you're attending the main Coffee and Chat session and not a discussion group specifically for those who want to discuss their reading **Please ensure your Zoom account is upgraded to the most recent version so that you will be able to select the correct breakout room.
The Book Club Q&A events hosted by Abbie with a guest author or expert are recorded. Please sign up to the event on the website to receive a recording of the event emailed in a post-event email.
No, as they are discussion based and require live attendance. If you're unable to join the live group one month, perhaps consider whether you'd like to host a community-led book club group on a subject of your choice!
Send us an email on [email protected] letting us know what topic you'd like to lead a group on. Previous groups have been 'Must-Reads', 'Guilty Pleasures', and 'Summer Beach Reads'.
