The group saw some comings and goings during 2018 but one thing remains the same ,some stimulating and enjoyable reads. We meet on the first Friday of the month, at 2.00 pm with each of the twelve members hosting the group in turn and choosing the read for that month.
he reads are varied with some classics such as “Remains of the day” by Kasuo Ishiguru and “My Antonia” by Willa Cather and a wide variety of others.
The meetings are friendly and all views are discussed and are usually divided. Within the group, there are usually some who will find the book choice for that month a “joy to behold” and some who find it “not to their taste” or even annoying – such are different tastes!
At the 2018 Christmas social we had a book of the year competition and voted for our favourite read of the year.
The joint winners were — “The Miniaturist ” by Jessie Burton and “Eleanor Oliphant” by Gail Honeyman – both excellent reads and highly recommended.
The group is now full, being twelve at present, but there is a waiting list.
