Come and join the

EuroMayenne Reading Group.

We share a love of books !

This new EuroMayenne group is for members to get together each month to discuss a book that they have all just read.

It  will encourage you to read more books and books that you might not normally choose.

The reasons that people give for joining a reading group include reading a wide variety of books, making friends, having fun, meeting like-minded people and stimulating the brain cells!

So please come and join us in this new venture.
