Ask around your existing personal networks, including neighbours, friends, social media, or a community noticeboard.

Once you mention you want to start a club, you’ll be surprised how many people may want to come along.

Ask at your local bookshop and library for ideas - many run regular reading groups and can point you in the right direction for good books.

Identify what common interests you and your group have and use these to help draw like-minded people.

Once you start looking, you’ll find book clubs for men or women, seniors, sci-fi lovers, teenagers or cookery buffs.
