Read, Drink, Repeat


Welcome to Introvert Happy Hour.

Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends reading in companionable silence at our neighborhood bar. We loved books, and reading with friends, but most of our previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out.Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework?

So that side project I've been working on for the last couple months is finally ready to happen. I'm more than excited to be the administrator for the Palm Springs location of Silent Book Club, our first event is next Monday, we're meeting at the cutest of all restaurants/bar in downtown Palm Desert and I'm hoping to see lots of new and old faces. If there is not one in your hometown, cozy up and check out their website and start one on your own, the founder is pretty cool! With local chapters scattered in every major city throughout the U.S. from New York to Seattle, welcome to the newest member of the family, we invite you to join us all over the Coachella Valley.

And if you don't have the time to find and/or read a book. We have a few great suggestions for starting an article club. Those Aren't Fighting Words, Dear, Why is it Hard to Make Friends Over 30, The Busy Trap, Surprised to See Me?, Why We Cheat, Courting Your Friends, Is There Life After Work Masters of Love, How to Be Polite!
