Image result for image i love reading

Welcome to Bibliomaniac's Book Club! Here you can find titles and questions to help support your book group. There are two options, either the PaperLight option or the PaperWeight option depending on the preference of your book group.

Questions and any other links to authors, giveaways or competitions will be posted on the 1st of each month so you can use them for your discussion of that book.  So for example, check back on 1st February for questions on "Swimming Lessons" by Claire Fuller and "Sofia Khan" by Ayisha Malik

If you want to make sure you don't miss any posts then you can sign up to receive them for free via email from the blogsite or follow me on Twitter @katherinesunde3 (bibliomaniacuk) or Facebook katherine.sunderland.14
