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.

Three Men on a Boat — Jerome K Jerome

Book cover for Jerome K Jerome's Three Men in a Boat in the South Manchester, Chorlton, and Didsbury book groupMartyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a ‘T’. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks ― not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J's small fox-terrier Montmorency.

This week's book is Jerome K Jerome's Three Men on a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) and we'll not be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury but will be meeting online — contact us for details.
