Montreux Book Club

I was just wondering if there would be anyone willing to help with the development of a book club on lake geneva region?
I just started using this site mainly aimed at parents and free speakers
I hope in the near future this social network will provide a lot of people to come together to share knowledge while snacking in the sun and enjoying the view of the swiss alps,

Re: Montreux Book Club

there is a book club in morges---Book club / Reading group in / around Morges

and we will (hopefully) be getting the poetry club back together as the weather gets warmer...

i'm not sure many would travel to montreux for a book club, but maybe getting one together in lausanne will be easier as there are a lot more people here, if morges is too far for you.

why not put up an introduction so you can tell us more about yourself-
welcome to the forum from another nuyoriqueña!

Re: Montreux Book Club

Books Books Books in Lausanne also hosts a number of book clubs
http://www.booksbooksbooks.ch/
Maybe contact Matt (the owner) and enquire if he knows if any of the groups have any availability?

Here are a couple of other listings

Hope this helps

Re: Montreux Book Club

I keep meaning to visit, but haven't made it there yet. I've heard it's acutally quite a good selection of books. I saw that you're in Blonay, would you be interested in a starting book club in the area?

Unfortunately my state of health is such that I could not help with this.

Re: Montreux Book Club

The Lausanne library also have English books. Not a huge selection, but enough for you to find something to read.

Re: Montreux Book Club

If we can get about five people, I think it could be the start of a book club in the Montreux/Vevey region. Anyone game? Maybe once a month meet up at one person's house and talk about the book and/or other things (depending on how good or bad the book was )

We did have one. But I just can find the time any more!
Send me a private message and I'll hook you up with the organizer. They might still be meeting (without me ). They are lovely and picks good books (that I had time only to half read. )
