​Just Read

​Just Read is a come-as-you-are, read-what-you-like online book club and so much more! Just Read circular logo

This monthly online book club is genre or theme based. Each month, a new genre or theme will be announced and your participation will be on your own and through social media.

Whether you are already an avid reader or want to be, whether you are looking for recommendations or know what you like, whether you are reading for you or reading to someone, Phoenix Public Library is here to help with a little inspiration.

Read what you like and be accountable to yourself.   

Each month, we will announce a book club genre or theme on our website. Read what you like within this genre or theme. Participate throughout the month by posting on social media, tagging Phoenix Public Library and #justreadppl to share, discuss and recommend your book choice.  Or, follow along on your own without posting on social media – it's all good! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube or visit our website for more about the Just Read online book club.


​February's theme is Magazines

While books often get the spotlight, magazine reading is a daily part of many of our lives and is absolutely considered "real reading." This month, the Just Read book club writes a love letter to magazines!
