Book Club

This group will meets on the first Monday of the month, from 7:30pm. We each choose a selection of books to read plus two classics in the first meeting of the year in January, that makes eleven books a year as we have a break in August.

We read the book over a month and come together for coffee and cake (when not on zoom), to discuss the book and other stuff, which is also when we reveal the book for that month.

Anyone can join - you just have to like reading! It's not all Mills & Boon, we have a varied reading list. If you are up for an afternoon of discussion once a month then just sign on the dotted line and start reading.

Books are not provided, but you can purchase most online at Amazon and there are some good second hand copies out there, ordering via your local Library or Kindle is a very good alternative, (although I like to hold a book in my hands, I'm old fashioned that way).

So we look forward to meeting you at our next Book Club Meeting.
