About us

Hello everyone!

The Reading Society is a fun, welcoming society that's aimed towards those who enjoy reading and meeting new people with similar interests, putting everything social, first. We’re a diverse group of students who love reading, socialising and discussing everything book related. We’re open to all, whether you enjoy reading fiction novels, non-fiction books or even prefer manga/comics! If you're interested, join our groupchat, check out our instagram or come along to one of our events - everyone's welcome! The society has held a healthy 200 membership number for the last couple of years, so there's no better time to join!

Throughout the year we have monthly choices of books to read, selected by our members that we hand out and collect back. We’re a completely free society and we provide the books for our members to borrow, thanks to our local library! We don't expect everyone to finish each book and there's no pressure to do so. 

We have meetings every two weeks on a Wednesday, where we hold events that are book related and socialise afterwards at the pub! You can expect bookish quizzes at our main meetings and socials at our sponsored establishments as well as non alcohol venues such as cafes and bookstores. We've got loads of events to come this year and you can check out our student union page and our Instagram for information. New members are always welcome, and we usually have people joining at all times throughout the year so feel free to come along at any point in the year! 

Feel free to send us a message on Instagram, through the whatsapp groupchat or by email if you have any questions, and grab your FREE membership below if you want to join!
