I'm moving to Portland this summer and was wondering if there were many book clubs in the city? And if so, what sort of thing(s) are you reading? Any info would be appreciated!

Oh yes. It seems as though there are as many book clubs here as there are raindrops. A lot are literary, but there are also mystery book clubs, romance, etc. There are several that meet at Powell's, one of our local bookstores.

Great, and thanks, cuffindell. I'm really looking forward to it. Do you just find out about them at Powell's?

If you haven't already stumbled onto "Local" information, give it a try. Go to the Local tab at upper right, and enter your location as Portland Oregon. You will see all of the bookstores within a specified distance.

The Powell's store in Cedar Hills (a western suburb) hosts several book clubs that meet monthly - mystery, romance, a peak oil group, etc. I have been listing their events as Powell's posts their new calendar each month. This would be a good place to start - you will probably meet people who belong to multiple book clubs, and something will surely grab your interest.

The major libraries might also have some book club activity. Or just Google "book clubs Portland Oregon" - it looks like Craig's List might have some entries in that category. Happy reading!

I am moving to Portland in June and will be looking for a book group, fairly literary, maybe even a bit quirky.
I will be living downtown so maybe the downtown Powells is the place to start.

I live in Portland, am not a member of a book club, but would like to be.

Maybe when you new ones get up here we should start a librarything group!
