Don’t have time to join a club but love reading and talking about books? Join the online club hosted by ‘The Local Sweden’.
This facebook book club is especially for you if you want to read about Sweden and Swedish culture but don’t know where to start. Every month, members of the club read a different book with a connection to Sweden and discuss the book on the group. There is also a monthly poll to choose books each month.
To be a part of the club, you can simply join using this link - https://www.facebook.com/groups/thelocalswedenbookclub/.
If you’ve read the book already but still want to participate in discussions, please remember the rules - No spoilers, be kind, stay on topic and respect privacy :)
