We put our phones down & focus on books.
We read outside of our comfort zones.
We look to learn from every book even if we don't love it.
We share what we learn and take positive action.
We makes friends through shared interests & curiosity about differences.

We are rebel readers. Scroll to meet the team, hub hosts and our marvellous members.

"I've always enjoyed reading but after joining RBC I became aware of books and topics I would have never discovered on my own. To ensure I get through all the books, I've made reading my procrastination strategy - I squeeze a chapter in whenever I need a break from work or life."


"Whilst the last year has been a big challenge to pivot to an entirely digital proposition we’ve continued to grow, had some lovely press in The Evening Standard and made our first TV appearance on Sky Arts with Elizabeth Day. We've started to bring the RBC model to brands who want to bring something fresh to their L&D."



“I have never been a natural reader, I'm here for the socials 😉 But I love what I learn from non-fiction books and talking to people about them after... RBC helps me finally finish my book stack and gives me an awesome group of people to bounce ideas with!”


"RBC was the answer to my old tsundoku problem (pile of books that never get read). 70 books (3 kids, one dog, a few moves + startups) later - RBC is still fulfilling its promise: read and discuss (at least) one book each month, in between everything else that life brings."

Our Members

We are a global community of readers, thinkers & doers who are curious about our changing world and our place in it.

Albert Kurniadi

"I'm a lot better at asking for help. Amanda Palmer’s ‘The Art of Asking’ made me realise that if you are genuine in your intention, there’s a lot of people out there waiting and wanting to pay it forward."

Ava Miller

"I loved English class and I really missed the opportunity to read a book and then discuss it. RBC is a great gathering of people around books and ideas, a bit like English class!"

Corrie Jones

"I was a massive reader as a child and teenager, then went to uni to study English Literature and got put off reading for ages afterwards (needing to read and discuss 3 books a week will do that to you). Back into it more now, at a pace that suits me."
