Shared reading in north Wales

Social reading is becoming more popular, with people either joining local reading groups, discussing books on review sites like Goodreads, or even joining virtual book clubs like the Twitter book club run by Neath Port Talbot libraries.

Back in October 2012 I blogged about the The Reader Organisation’s project to create 30 reading groups in north Wales. Well, the Make Friends With A Book Project has established several of those groups with sessions offered in both English and Welsh and for adults and children.

See the clip below for an introduction into one of the groups, recorded during the Get Libraries festival in autumn 2013.

You can find other reading groups by using the Reader Organisation’s map, or the Reading Agency’s Reading Groups website. (Other local reading groups may be available!)
