Welcome to this month’s book readalong! As you know, I absolutely love the book readalong, it’s always one of my favourite #BringBackPaper activities.
If you’ve yet to join in with one of these readalongs, let me tell you a little more about it and tempt you to join us.
The book readalong is an easy activity to get involved with as it’s like an online book club. I will always share the book here, usually a week or so before the month that we will be reading it in, to give you time to get your copy. Then the #BringBackPaper online book club is open to absolutely everyone, so do feel free to come and readalong with us.
The book readalong is a great way to read something that you might not have picked up yourself, and I try to change up the genres from month to month to keep things interesting.
I have chosen a new book for May, and it’s one I have had my eye on for a while, I was waiting for the paperback to come out. I love reading books featuring bookshops and libraries, of course, I love books, so I am really looking forward to finding out how this story unfolds.

May Book Readalong
So onto May’s book to readalong with, and it’s The Last Library by Freya Sampson…
A little about this month’s book read-along:
Lonely library assistant June is much more comfortable with books than people. When her mum – the beloved local librarian – passed away, June stepped into her shoes.
But shy June has always felt that she could never live up to her mum’s legacy. Instead, she’s retreated into herself, surviving on takeaways-for-one and her favourite stories.
When the library is threatened with closure, June is distraught. Yet when a ragtag band of eccentric but dedicated locals establish the Friends of Chalcot Library campaign, June is forbidden from joining their cause.
If June wants to save the place that means so much to her, she’ll have to make some bold changes to her life: opening up her heart to friendship, opportunities and maybe even more . . .
The book readalong is really simple to join in with, you just need to get yourself a copy of the book and read it at some during May. Let us know that you’re joining in by dropping by the Facebook group to chat about it, or tweet or Instagram your book with the hashtags #BringBackPaper #BookReadalong. If you’re not on social media, then it matters not, you can join in and not tell the world what you’re up to!
If you are looking to read with us and join in with the #bringbackpaper readalong, we’d love to talk books with you, so go grab yourself a copy of the book and get reading! You are always very welcome in the Bring Back Paper Facebook group to come and chat about it (and all other papery things) and I will get a new book chat thread started there shortly ready for us to share our thoughts on this one.
What do you say, are you looking forward to this one?
