Reading Groups

Maria's Bookshop loves our local reading groups! With over 100 book clubs registered with us, we get to hear about a wide variety of book choices and facilitation styles. There are so many creative ways to start and run a reading group, and we encourage you to have fun with it!

For our registered book groups, we maintain a list of title selections and offer a 15% discount for the selection of the month. Some titles are not eligible for this discount, so check with your Maria's Bookshop booksellers first.

We love helping book clubs find new members and connecting individuals with existing reading groups in our area. If you are interested in accepting new members or joining an established reading group, please contact and she'll help you find the perfect fit. 

Registering Your Reading Group

Registering your Reading Group with Maria's Bookshop is easy!  Simply email the following information to

  •   Reading group name
  •   Contact person's name, email, and phone
  •   Number of members who will generally buy their books through Maria's Bookshop 
  •   Group's theme or identity (e.g. women who love wine and cheese, Buddhist, father-son, children's literature, etc.)
  •   Whether or not your group is open to new members

Remember, you and your friends will need to tell us the name of your book group every time you call or come in, so pick a good one. Please be sure to update us if any contact information changes.

As soon as your group makes a book selection, contact us to place the order. We'll stock your selection in the shop, and we're happy to hold a copy for you if you ask us to.
