The Idea...

Watch our 3 minute video to hear readers explain and comment about the Scheme. 

The Book Discussion Scheme lends books & professionally prepared discussion notes to self-directed book groups. We cater to adults and to high school and tertiary students. We also run a programme for ESOL (English as second language speakers) and migrants. 

We deliver anywhere in New Zealand. Delivery is included in membership.

We offer you... 

Value for money - we loan out sets of books to self-directed book groups (average cost for adult programme is $6 a book + about $1 return postage). We are a not-for-profit organisation, so keep our costs low.

 

Convenience - we courier books with discussion notes anywhere in NZ (included in membership cost).

 

Choice - more than 900 fiction & non-fiction titles to choose from.

 

Great discussion - your group reads and talks about the same book. 

 

You can also read comments (testimonials) by our members.
