Audrey matches readers with listeners to read thought-provoking books aloud together, sparking interesting conversations and creating meaningful relationships.
Anyone who enjoys reading, would like to develop a sense of connectedness with someone new, and values other people's perspectives.
From within our community, we'll take care to identify a reading partner we think you'll connect well with. Someone with some shared interests to you.
Tell us a little about yourself and decide how you’d like to use Audrey e.g. as a reader or listener, or both.
We’ll introduce you to your reading partner, share a hand-picked book, and help facilitate your first reading session.
Begin reading your chosen book together. Each reading takes 10-15 minutes. Enjoy interesting conversations with each other.
