Real Life Romance Novel Book Clubs

I hope that the Shelf Love podcast creates an amazing, almost-like-real-life book club experience, but nothing beats seeing people in real life and talking about the books we love. I hope this directory helps connect you with a real life book club near you!

Email me at andrea@shelflovepodcast.com to add a romance novel book club or make changes to existing ones.
