Silent Book Club

Do you love to read but hate assigned reading? Do you like reading with others but don’t enjoy the pressure of a traditional book club? Would you like to meet other bibliophiles in Boone, maybe from a safe distance? We have just the thing for you! Foggy Pine Books is launching a Silent Book Club and you are invited!

You're probably wondering what exactly is a Silent Book Club? It's pretty awesome! You, the reader, come with the book you’re currently reading. You can grab a cup of coffee or tea & curl up in one of our chairs or couches with your book. The booksellers will keep track of the time while you get to read in companionable silence with other people for an hour. At the end of the hour, you can head out or, if you want to chat about the book you’re reading, you can head into the conference room and discuss your text with other bibliophiles. No pressure. No push to socialize. You don’t even have to stay the whole time! We just want you to have a comfy place to read and people to talk to about your book, should you desire to do so.

If this sounds like something you would enjoy, come read with us at our twice monthly meetings. We’ll meet at 1pm on the second Tuesday for those that have time during the day, and at 6pm on the third Saturday for those that prefer weekends or evenings. We will provide snacks & drinks for our book club members. Read on!
