Reading Group September

Last month we read the set book “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy which was a World Book Night chosen book and was very thought provoking, dealing with the struggle for existence of a man and his son in a post-apocalyptic world. This month we are going for “The Rotters’ Club” by Jonathan Coe.

Growing Reading Group

There are now eleven members of the Reading Group which is our absolute maximum due to the number of seats I can provide as host! It has been a bit problematic getting sufficient copies of books as Hucknall Library has been closed for six months, but we are starting off again with the set book “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy which was a World Book Night chosen book and is very thought provoking. We are liaising with the Crime Café held monthly at Hucknall Library so that we can have a set of their books the following month, which will help me in trying to obtain sufficient copies for our group. In June instead of a set book, we all chose a classic to re-visit and it was sometimes quite surprising how well (or not) we remembered reading them the first time. There was no set book in July.

Reading Group Plan Ahead

The Reading Group is still at full capacity and enjoying a wide variety of different genres. The bad news is that Hucknall Library has closed for six months to have essential roofing problems dealt with and so we have had to plan well ahead and order books in advance. This left my shopping trolley and me very weak from taking home over thirty books in one trip!
