What could be better? One evening a month spent with other book lovers. A Book Group meeting offers the chance to explore new titles and new genres of writing that you yourself may not have chosen. It is the opportunity to discover hidden treasures that can be shared with other people and to hear how differently people react to the same book; new insights lead to totally different interpretations and you often go away looking forward to re-reading the title from another angle. Inevitably some books lend themselves to discussion better than others, and, interestingly, it is often the less well-known titles that emerge as the real hidden gems, giving rise to passionate discussion and sometimes heated debate.

The Treasure Trove team is looking forward to starting its own Adult Reading Groups.

We are currently planning a 'Book Group for non-English speakers' (a name needed please - all suggestions welcome!), that we hope will meet once a month at Treasure Trove on Friday evenings. This will welcome people who would like to improve their spoken English by reading books in English, and then discussing them. The books will be chosen carefully to have both an appropriate language level and an inherent 'literary quality' that will generate plenty of ideas for discussion. Please contact us if you are a non-English speaker interested in participating in this group. We are hoping to start in October and will let you know the title of the first book.

 We have had several enquiries from people interested in forming a 'Treasure Trove Book Group'. If this appeals to you please let us know - we need to find out which times would be best, whether evenings or during the day, whether people are interested in a general Book Group covering both non-fiction and fiction books, or in a themed group reading a particular type of genre such as 'Mystery' or 'Classics' etc. All suggestions are welcome - just send us a mail or come and talk to us in the store. The more ideas the better!

 We have also discussed the idea of a Children's Group - this would obviously be our dream, but it is by no means clear whether sufficient numbers of children would all be available at any one time of day. So let us know - if you would like to discover some of the amazing books currently being written and share them with other like-minded people, we'll do our best to make it happen!

ALL BOOK GROUPS ARE ENTITLED TO A 10% DISCOUNT ON BOOKS ORDERED THROUGH TREASURE TROVE, AND ALL TITLES CAN BE ORDERED PROVIDED WE HAVE ENOUGH PRIOR WARNING!
