Our booklist and reviews from the reading groups
| Portsmouth Library Service has over 90 book sets that are available for reading groups in the local area to use and enjoy. Our mission is to challenge your comfortable reading choices and our book sets are a mixture of 19th and 20th century classics as well as contemporary novels and narrative non-fiction. |
Titles are suggested by reading group members and staff, and then the group facilitators decide which books will be best for encouraging debate and discussion. Generally speaking we select mainstream titles in paperback. Quite often they have won, or been shortlisted for an award. We occasionally choose books to tie in with a literary event or author visit.
Tell us what you want!The Library Service is always looking for suggestions for good reading group titles and likes to involve the groups in the decision process. If you would like to suggest a book you think would make a good reading group selection, please start a thread below
Read our reviewsTo take a closer look at our collection, please use the book title links below. Each page has a synopsis and perhaps reviews from the reading groups themselves. If you have read the same books as us, you're very welcome to leave your own review on the relevant page. Join the debate!

Come on. What about a crime book reading group i know there are a lot of you into crime novels.There are so many good crime writers out there.Also why not take into account all the people who cannot get to reading groups either because they are housebound or because of work.I am happy to do any work to start one up if enough people are interested.
