Silent Book Club started 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?

Join us for Silent Book Club, a monthly popup speakeasy for readers. Bring a book, grab a spot on a comfy couch, and order a glass of wine. Then settle in for an evening of reading with fellow book lovers at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
While some silent reading parties have a strict No Talking! rule, no one will be shushed or shamed at Silent Book Club. We like to share book recommendations. Bookstagramming is welcome. And, there's a plush leather couch or armchair for everyone.
Pleasant evening overall.
It was interesting reading time in a dimly lit lobby/restaurant space of a hotel. The crowd was dispersed in various locations. I shared a couch with one person. Two people were in separate chairs across the coffee table from me.
Despite music blaring in the background people were quietly reading. At the end of the session, I met two of the women who shared my space who were also first-timers to the group.
