Taiwan Readers Meetup Group

Welcome to the group!

We are a group of readers living in Taiwan, expats and locals, who love to come together over coffee or a meal to discuss books, reading, and whatever else is on our minds.

We also talk about books on the LINE group. Anybody can suggest a time/place to meet and organize a meetup as there is no designated 'leader' of the group. The group meets around Taipei and New Taipei city about once a month.

Some people also use the meetings as an opportunity to trade, sell, or give books to each other. It's best to discuss these exchanges, in private, before the meetup.

Rules of the Group

Please Do...

  • Introduce yourself!
  • Talk about books you're reading!
  • Share book news!
  • Talk about book awards!
  • Show respect to all members.

Please Don't...

  • Private message people!*
  • Spam the group
  • Discuss politics/religion (a little is OK!)

I created this book group to meet more people living in Taiwan who like books.
