“Knowing you have something good to read before bed is among the most pleasurable of sensations.” — Vladimir Nabokov
Let us stop you right there: this is not about a weekly get-together to discuss the last book you read together with a group of people. The Apéro Book Club is based on the concept of book sharing. If you too love to read, are based in Paris, and want to get involved, read on.
An online platform where members can borrow from and loan books to each other. Want to learn how it works? Interested in joining? Scroll down to the bottom of the page for details.

HOW IT WORKS
In order to join, you need to bring books to the table. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a preview of at least 3 books you would like to share.
You will then receive an invite to the collective online platform, where you can fill in the details for the books you would like to lend to others as well as gain access to the books you could borrow from other members (in addition to the Apéro selection above, which will be updated very quickly with more categories!).
RULES OF THE CLUB
- Each loan is voluntarily. A member is free to say “yes” or “no” to any offer.
- Apéro à Paris holds no responsibility in case of any issue. Any problem is to be resolved directly between the parties concerned.
- To avoid forgetting the books you borrowed or lent to others, we advise you to keep a clear record somewhere, written or digital.
- Protect the property of others. If you borrowed a book from someone, think of using a protective cover and a book-mark.
- Members of the club need to be ready to provide some form of contact information and arrange their agendas to meet up (a matter of 5 minutes) to pick up and return books.
