The book club has been running over on Facebook since it was started in July 2014 by RTE broadcaster Rick O’Shea. There are now almost 13,000 of us, making us Ireland’s biggest book club.

Every month we pick 2 books to read across the following 4 weeks and we run regular author interview events all across the country too, details of which you can find in the club or here on the site.

The only way to find out what it’s all about is by by joining The Rick O’Shea Book Club on Facebook.

You can read all of Rick’s own book reviews over on his website.
