December - 'The Midnight Library' by Matt Haig
Cover image for Midnight Library
"The books in the Midnight Library enable Nora to live as if she had done things differently. With the help of an old friend, she can now undo every one of her regrets as she tries to work out her perfect life. But things aren’t always what she imagined they’d be, and soon her choices place the library and herself in extreme danger.

Before time runs out, she must answer the ultimate question: what is the best way to live?"
January - 'The Dutch House' by Ann Patchett
Cover image for Dutch House
"Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they’ve lost with humor and rage. But when at last they’re forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested."
Books On Main is excited to be able to offer a monthly book club to our customers!
Why join a book club?
It is a fun way to meet and discuss with other avid readers as well as to explore some of the amazing new works of fiction!

What kind of books does the club read?
Each month members vote to select a recently released fiction book to explore together. We frequently highlight Canadian writers. Clubbers can then pick up their copy anytime after the 1st of the month and enjoy a 15% discount off the title!

How do members meet and discuss?
Throughout the month, clubbers are encouraged to share and discuss on the club Facebook page and this is also where they can receive important updates about upcoming titles, meeting dates and other important information. Members not on social media can be contacted by email or phone. At the end of each month we offer a selection of times and dates for in-person discussion meet-ups. Meetings are limited to eight people per time slot. Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we will employ social distancing at meetings, clubbers are asked to wear masks and hand sanitizer is provided. Meetings are relaxed, book-centered and fun! ***Update: Meetings will be Zoom only until further notice***

How do I join the book club?
You can request access to the Facebook group here. You can also join in person at the shop, by email at or over the phone at 613 881-0346.

What happens if I miss a month?
Out of town? This month’s book not your cup of tea? No problem! Participation both online and at the in-person meetings is completely voluntary and flexible from month to month. There is no commitment to purchase the book of the month.
Happy Reading!
