Read at Thrillist
Reading in public is a beloved activity for many New Yorkers, and various reading groups and events are making it easier to share this experience with others. One such group is Reading Rhythms, which hosts "reading parties" where participants engage in sustained silent reading sessions and have literary discussions with fellow readers. The New York Public Library also offers a wide range of book clubs across all five boroughs, organized by genres and formats. These reading groups are a great way to connect with like-minded individuals and discuss your favorite books.
"These groups are uniting bookworms across the city, making it socially acceptable to ask, 'What are you reading?'”
The Reading Rhythms group hosts reading parties that include sustained silent reading sessions and literary discussions.
Tossing a book in a tote and plopping down at a laptop-free cafe, hidden green space, or favorite street bench can be an activity in and of itself. But it's equally as fun to share that imaginative experience with others.
