Why we charge?
As you may know, The Girly Book Club began life as a tiny start-up company in London, England in 2014. Since then, tiny step by tiny step, we’ve worked incredibly hard to build up from our humble beginnings into a serious for-[small!]-profit company, which runs book clubs and connects women all over the world. Through passion and sheer determination, we’ve now established Chapters in 35 different cities across 6 different countries around the world, which we’re incredibly proud of – not least because there are so many inspiring, warming stories of women having met in our book clubs and forged the closest of friendships.
We want to continue sharing our success with many more women in many more cities. But like with any expanding and aspiring global enterprise, development and growth only come with investment. It is for this reason that we now charge a small fee for attendance at our book clubs. While many book clubs don’t charge to attend, The Girly Book Club isn’t an ordinary book club – it offers our members so much more including a well researched book list, fully planned events, great partnership perks from likeminded brands, global social networking and discussion questions; author events and social outings inclusion fabulous free movie premieres. And as our thousands of members from around the world have happily told us, it’s a small price to pay for the fantastic benefits in return.
With our members’ support, and the thousands of volunteer hours that are put into The Girly Book Club every year, we have hugely exciting plans for the future. A new website, more events, more authors, more books and many more benefits. We hope you will continue to support us on this wonderful journey!
