Welcome to the University of Northampton Book Society! This society is a chance for you to meet new people through a love of books and hopefully make some solid friendships.
We aim to meet monthly to vote on two books to read for that month. You can choose to read one or both, the choice is completely up to you. If you’re not sure what we’re currently reading, all details are on our Instagram page.
Throughout the year, we aim to focus on a variety of genres, so that everyone can get a taste of familiar and unfamiliar ones. Below is what we read during each month:
- January = Crime
- February = Romance
- March = Comedy
- April = Factual
- May = Fantasy
- June = Adventure
- July = Suspense
- August = Travel
- September = Classic
- October = Horror
- November = Sci-Fi
- December = Christmas/Holiday
Socials and Events:
These tend to be on the calmer side, such as a lunch in town. We also aim to put on regular events which can vary from mini raffles for books, going on a trip to the theatre, or to see authors live.
We have a GoodReads group! Find us here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1056574-book-club-uon
This allows society members to discuss with one another, their opinions on the current books being read. Also keep an eye out on our Instagram and Facebook pages as we’ll be posting any important information on there for you all to see. Take part in regular polls and Q & A’s on our Instagram story about potential books you would like us to read in the future.
We welcome anyone and everyone to our society. So join us and read books that haven’t just been assigned to you as further reading from the Uni!
