I’m a recent transplant to Seattle, living in West Seattle, and would love to either start a book group or join one. I’d prefer a group of women since my husband and I don’t know a lot of people yet, and though I love hanging out with him, I need some girl time! I am in my mid-30’s and would like to read current fiction, memoirs, and classics. If anyone is interested in starting a group, or knows of a good group interested in new members, I’d love to hear from you. Thanks!

This sounds great! I’m also in my mid-30s, a mom (+1 for girl time!), and live near the Junction. I’ll read anything :) Keep me posted if you something is set up leah dot davidson at gmail.comDecember 19, 2010 at 7:30 am #711226
That sounds like fun. I am in my mid-30s, moved to W Seattle last March; I live near Alaska/California, and would love to have some girl time, too. Felicial.Rock at gmail.comDecember 20, 2010 at 5:10 am #711227December 21, 2010 at 4:56 pm #711228December 21, 2010 at 7:24 pm #711229
kmweiner — I am interested in a 40+ book club – or at least one where everyone is not so so focused on babies and kids. I’m past that, looking for girl time and interested in talking about current fiction with maybe a sprinkling of nonfiction.March 2, 2011 at 4:08 am #711230
Two more West Seattle ladies interested. How can we get in touch with you?March 2, 2011 at 5:21 am #711231March 2, 2011 at 7:17 am #711232
I’d be interested as well, I’m a recent transplant to West Seattle as well. I have lived here for a year now though. I have a son who is in 3rd grade and I will be 26 next month. you can contact me at

The “older” women’s group got started about 8 months ago and we are doing great. If you want/need some info about how we worked it all out, you can contact me at activistkmw AT hotmail.comJuly 25, 2011 at 4:22 am #711237
what’s “girl time?” lol. I am still new here in Seattle and would love love to get with some other women. Give me a time :) jrichtbackATyahoo.comAugust 22, 2011 at 2:12 am #711238
I am surprised no one mentioned the Seattle Public Library book clubs. i attend the SW branch clubs. 1-monday afternoon/2-monday nite. both lively and outspoken. we choose books once a year from 429 selections open to us, and the library provides the books free for one month. to check out the book names, google kitkeepers seattle.
the eve group is crowded now, but the afternoon group, meeting the 3rd monday of each month has room to breathe and talk. all are welcome. drop in and pick up the next month’s selection. (september: Brideshead Revisited.)

Hi, did you guys ever start a book club? If so, is it still going on? Taking any new folks? I am very interested… seem to have much in common by way of age (late 30’s), newness to the area & parental status (though I have a high schooler). :)

I would be interested in a monthly book club in West Seattle. I’m 61 so I’d prefer a 40 or 50 and older crowd as well where kids and parenting are of less concern.
Perhaps we should start two separate threads if there is enough interest,

and I’ll give you info about our “older” women’s group. We’ve been going for about 18 months now.January 14, 2013 at 9:43 pm #711245
I am in my early 30s and just moved to West Seattle. Looking for a book club that’s part stimulating conversation, part girl time. Is there a book club open to new members or is anyone interested in joining one if I start it? It’s mid-January and the winter doldrums have begun…let’s read some enlivening literature!January 14, 2013 at 10:04 pm #711246
