Peel Pie Society
The fictional club inspired us to find our way to the Pocket Diary Book Club. But we did not want a club with a book of the month. We wanted many books many readers each with a cup of tea in hand and reading passages aloud from their books.
Reading with half a spoonful of drama please thank you!

What we are not?
This is not a poetry reading club. We do not allow any form of self-promotion or self-written work.
What we are?
This is a book club where we promote literature we read as readers.
Books and Passages to be read by the readers attending the session will be pre-approved and discussed with the moderator. This is a mandatory procedural step to ensure non-repetition and engaging content to be read during the editions. Let's make it a great edition!
On 02.11.2022 we opened an offline book club with the universal urge of readers to have a place a club of readers members to sit together and read to listen to each other read with a cup of tea.
Milestones: We are officially in Phase III. The completion of Phase II was celebrated at Kavi Dalpatram Chowk. With 29 editions a collection of 630+ books in our library 185+ readers and 2 literature retreats we are taking steps to promote the literature and heritage of India.
