South Manchester Book Group

We're a friendly and open reading group, and we share a love of books and discussing them with other people. We meet every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch.

We now meet at Ye Olde Cocke on Wilmslow Road in Didsbury around 8 pm. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

If you enjoy talking about books over a quiet drink, then please join us — new members are very welcome.

Our reading list, past, present, and future, appears here and a short version of what we’re reading next is here.

The Rosie Project — Graeme Simsion

Book cover for Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project in the South Manchester, Chorlton, and Didsbury book group‘But I’m not good at understanding what other people want.’

‘Tell me something I don’t know,’ said Rosie for no obvious reason. I quickly searched my mind for an interesting fact.

‘Ahhh … The testicles of drone bees and wasp spiders explode during sex.’

This week's book is Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project and we'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.
