  1. Hi Folks, sorry I missed it too - I had terrible wisdom tooth ache (although I really am a little old for teething problems! I'll be there on 3 December - can't believe it has been 2 months since I made the last book group!
  2. Hi FOlks, I'm really sorry I didn't make it last night. Various reasons, which I won't go into on here! What was the verdict? I'm still enjoying it, although I found it hard work to get through in a month (I'm about 400 pages in!) particularly now I'm working again (YIKES!) I'll see you, I hope, next month!
  3. I'll be there, although I doubt very much that I'll have finished it - I'm only about 400 pages in so far. See you all on Wednesday!
  4. Not quite Shlg! I think the book was going to be A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thousand-Splendid-Suns-Khaled-Hosseini/dp/0747582971/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1221163832&sr=1-1 The one you linked to looked a bit 'interesting'! (PS, sorry I wasn't organised and didn't post these details - last time I tried and got it wrong.)
  5. I finished it about 2 days ago. Good choice by Mocca - I think we'll have lots to discuss. Look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.
  6. Thanks Mocca. I'm a complete idiot. I've changed my post above so it says 3 September now to avoid any confusion! This is why I never organise anything...because I always get it wrong.
  7. Hi tripleg, You and your girlfriend would be welcome to join us - new members are welcome. You don't have to do anything to join, except read the book and turn up ready to have a chat about it! This month's book is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. We'll be meeting at the Red Lion Pub, Charles Street at 7.30pm on Wednesday 3 September. (Look for us in the atrium bit on a big table. We'll usually have a copy of the book on the table too, so you can identify us).
  8. Hello! I think the consensus was that it was what we expected - easy reading with a lot of cardboard characters... What did you think? Next Meeting is going to be on Wednesday 6 August to discuss Notes on an Exhibition by Patrick Gale. The meeting after that will be early September (I can't remember if we agreed a date!) to discuss The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (as chosen by Mocca).
  9. Good work shlg! You are very organised as always! Looking forward to the next one already! Shauna
  10. I've just finished it too. I enjoyed it, although some parts made me feel a bit unwell...I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't finished it (and anyway, it is only because I'm very squeamish)!!
  11. Nice one on the book choice! I'm looking forward to it. And I wouldn't worry about getting approval - my choice got mixed reviews!
  12. I'm really enjoying it too. I sometimes fell like Death goes on a bit, but that doesn't detract from my enjoyment too much!
  13. You should be very proud of finishing it! I've managed to finish it too - but I had too as I picked it! Looking forward to Thursday. Shauna
  14. Thanks very much Alex! I'm off on holiday for a week from tomorrow, but hopefully I'll see you down there some point after that! Looking forward to it Shauna
