Hi weeble, sorry you couldn't make it.

There weren't many of us but it was very nice and The Nightwatch by Sarah Waters was chosen as the next book. Apparently it's to be had in all sorts of 3 for 2 offers and it's had excellent reviews.

Hope to see you next time!

I'm not going to be able to go. I have to work late and haven't read enough of the book to make a coment. It is a shame because I'm really enjoying reading it.

I doubt I will be able to join in the book group until summer, I hope that some of you will still make it.

That's a shame! Well, I know that Silke and Weeble can't make it, so I don't there is much point in me going either!

Apologies to anyone who turns up!

Shall we postpone till next week? Or shall I just choose a book?!

Hello

Next week is no good for me unfortunately so I'm fine for you just to choose a book for next time Cheese - I trust your judgement!

Hopefully see you next month!

Hello… I'd really like to read The Book of Dave by Will Self. It's just out in paperback and is also on a 3 for 2 offer in Waterstones!

Here's what it's about:

The Book of Dave is Self's most successful novel to date. Funny, frightening, moving, its premise is that the unhinged and misogynistic rantings of a London cabbie are unearthed in a future capital (by then just a series of islands). Taking more of an interest in character than ever before, Self tells the sad story of Dave alongside that of the mangled-mockney-speaking, fearful new world in which a soul is a "fare", "irony" is the word for any metal, and Dave is always watching his people in the Rearview.


Sounds right up my street!

Hi!

I've recently moved to Crystal Palace and am looking for a reading group to join. I was wondering if this group is still meeting and if so when the next meeting is? And - can I come along?! :)
