Book Clubs

We’ve been running our Book Clubs at Simply Books for over fifteen years – some of our members have coming along since day one but we always enjoy welcoming new people! If you love reading and like talking about books why not ask us about joining one of our book clubs?



Sue’s Book Club

Sue’s Book Club is a group for Women. We meet in the morning on the first Tuesday of the month. We mostly read new(ish) fiction and sometimes biography – books which appeal to a female readership. You’ll get a good idea of what we’ve read recently if you browse ‘Sue’s Bay’ in the shop.


Here’s what we’re reading this month...

Stories for Christmas

by Various Authors

The British Library Women Writers series is a curated collection of novels by female authors who enjoyed broad, popular appeal in their day. In a century during which the role of women in society changed radically, their fictional heroines highlight women’s experience of life inside and outside the home through the decades in these rich, insightful and evocative stories.

Cloud Cuckoo Land

by Anthony Doerr

Fifteenth-century Constantinople. Present day Idaho. The future, and humanity’s last hope.  Across time and space, five young dreamers are bound by a single ancient text. Together, they tell a story of a world in peril, of the power of words, of resilience, and of hope against all odds.

Winter Frost

by R.D. Wingfield

Denton is having more than its fair share of crime.  A serial killer is murdering local prostitutes; a man demolishing his garden shed uncovers a long-buried skeleton; there is an armed robbery at a local minimart and a ram raid at a jewellers.

Wednesday 14th November 7.00PM

‘Possibly the most accurate picture of police work in crime fiction today… An absolute cracker’ – Mike Ripley


Friday Night

Friday Night Book Club is for adults who enjoy reading children’s fiction – particularly novels aimed at older teens (YA). We meet every six weeks on a Friday evening. It’s a fairly new group so room for new members!
