Bookish Book Club

where bookish people talk about bookish books




BookWyrm logo

We're a group of self-identified bookish people who read books about bookish things. Many of us are professionally associated with rare books either as librarians, scholars, or dealers. Some of us are just bookish folk who like to read about the creation, dissemination, collection, and use of books. Curious about what we've read so far? Scroll through our list of past reads--two years and counting!!

Want to become a member of the Bookish Book Club or learn more about it? Send an email to and we'll get you set up! We've got a Discord server for chatting, monthly book reads, and occasional movie watches. We're highly bookish but you don't need to be a professional book person, just someone who likes learning about bookish things!

We are for now closed to anyone who is not already a member of the Bookish Book Club.
