News from the reading group

Reading Group

For November we read “The Child” by Fiona Burton, which was the librarian’s choice. We all enjoyed this story which had a twist at the end.

We are planning our 2022 programme and we like to have a different genre of book each month; so once again I would be pleased to hear of any which you might like to recommend. The Library organised our December book which was a futuristic one; “How to Stop Time” is about Tom Hazard who looks like your average forty-something but actually has a rare condition that makes him age slower than the average human. So, he’s around four hundred years old!

We have decided not to hold a January Reading Group session but will share on line our comments on books we have read. In February we will be discussing “any book you read at school/college etc” which gives scope for a wide variety of books.

Last month we read “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte – quite heavy going but a classic. And for November we have “The Child” by Fiona Burton, which was the librarian’s choice. I would be happy to help set up a second Reading Group for U3A if enough members are interested, please let me know. A nice round number is eight members which gives time for everyone to review what they have been reading each month.

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.
