News from the reading group

Reading Group

This month I got the librarian to pick out eight autobiographies on my behalf (latest ones not old ones) to take the members out of their comfort zone. I got each member to pick a book at random out of a bag! The books ranged from Tina Turner, Bernard Cribbins, comedian Tom Allen, Elton John, Phil Schofield, Michael McIntyre, Caroline Flack and a couple of others which I can’t remember offhand at the moment.

Next month we are reading “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte – talk about from the ridiculous to the sublime!

We met for the first time in over 21 months on August 4th when we enjoyed discussing the books we had read and also swapping books. The Group received free copies of a book from The Book Case at Lowdham for which we thank them.

Hopefully we shall be able to obtain a new set book from the library in time for the September meeting.

At long last the Library has re-opened – recently I’ve had to re-read my old books – not much fun when you remember whodunit from the first time you read it! We had a garden meet up in June but we did not meet up in July but compared notes about what we had read via our newsletter.

We plan to meet indoors in August. Once again Lowdham Bookshop has been in touch to kindly offer the Group free copies of books which we hope to have in time for the August meeting.

A Reading Group meet-up in Margaret White’s garden took place in early June, when the weather was excellent. We had a full house or should I say garden and it was great to meet up again to discuss our books and do a book swap – and of course enjoy Margaret’s banana bread.

A Reading Group meet up in Margaret White’s garden is planned for early June, weather permitting. Unfortunately at this moment Hucknall Library is still not open so it has been difficult to return books etc but they have automatically renewed all books until 1st July and I understand that they have a Click & Collect service if you log on to the Inspire website. Also I believe you can return books to any library so if you happen to be passing another one in Nottingham, give it a try.
