LitLovers Lisbon is a close knit, facilitated book discussion group made up of interesting people who take reading seriously.

We rotate between reading classics and contemporary fiction based on participants’ recommendations, and choose one or two books in advance so that Bookshop Bivar can order them. The group generally meets the first Wednesday of every month at Bookshop Bivar.

We currently have a few spots open for new members to join. Ideally you could commit to at least 6 monthly discussions per year. Please contact if you are interested. Email: litlovers (at)
