Wondering what you might be reading for February. Wasn't able to make the January meeting but interested in the possibility in future if there was space still.

Thank you for posting information here rather than just PMing in response to queries. It is harder for people considering joining to find out anything about the group and what kind of books you read otherwise.

February's book is Dead Babies by Martin Amis. As it happens, this is quite a short novel, less than 200 pages. Please read it and join us in the Golden Lion on Wednesday February 28, from about 7.30pm. We'll have the books on the table.

Yes we would welcome both of you. Just come along on the 28 Feb at around 7.30 in the Golden Lion. But only if you've read this month's book, which is Dead Babies by Martin Amis. As it happens, this is quite a short novel, less than 200 pages.
You'll find us because the book will be on our table.

a bump to this thread as we've had a few people leave, so if anyone wants to join a friendly local book group please do turn up.
we meet once a month on the last Wednesday, from 7.30pm in The Golden Lion. This month (next week in fact) we will be discussing 'How To measure a Cow' by Margaret Forster.

Definitely! If you can join us on Wednesday 29 August from about 7.30 in the Golden Lion, we'd be glad to see you. This month's book is "26A" by Diana Evans.
