If you're a book lover who's always wanted to join a reading group, or who is missing your regular group due to self-isolation, Wirral Libraries invites you online to its new virtual book club.
Hosted by Goodreads: the world's largest site for readers and book recommendations, Wirral Libraries Bookbuzz allows members to post about what they are reading, write reviews, start discussions, and discover books recommended by friends. You can also track the books you've finished and want to read next.
Personalised book recommendations are also available - helping you discover new novels, non-fiction, biographies and more, and 'transporting' you to a new place during the social distancing period, (figuratively, at least!).
To join, visit the Goodreads website and select the 'Community' drop down menu, searching under 'Groups' for 'Wirral Libraries Bookbuzz'. To take part in discussions you will need to register your email address and create a password. You can then set your privacy settings to control how much people see about you - adding the titles you have read to your profile, rating books, and even asking authors questions.
