Struggling to find one.

Have you tried your local library? If you have children, try asking one of the other mums if she knows of a group.
Or there might be a notice in one of the community hall?

Set one up if you can’t find one. Use the local pages here and on netmums

Or just ask friends if they or anyone they know would be interested.

Meetup.com is a good start - there are several in my local area. Libraries and bookshops often run them - I know at least one Waterstones and a few independent bookshops near me do. Or I have seen people starting reading groups on Nextdoor.com.

My currently-semi-dormant (more social than reading) book group was set up through Mumsnet local about seven or eight years ago.

Is there a local Facebook group? I found mine via one of those. Put a post up and see if anyone knows of any.

Also worth asking in the library.
