The basic idea was a loose one – a meet up for people who are interested in books and bookish things who blog, tweet or review them online and are near the Birmingham vicinity (here‘s the original blogpost at playingbythebook). As someone who occasionally blogs about the books we read at book club and a few other book reviews I figured I could justify popping along.
Six of us turned out for the first meeting and had a great chat about Birmingham, books and bookish things in Birmingham. From that we’ve created a Google calendar to collect together bookish things in Birmingham. I’ve added the events from the Waterstones website, a couple of book groups and some other events. But I’m sure there has to be more events in Birmingham about books and bookish things. So if you know of any please let me know (comment or email).
Next meet up is Sunday 24th July from 6-8pm at The Victoria, John Bright St. Join us?
