READING GROUP 1
Contact: Irene Williams
Meet 2 to 3pm. 3rd Monday each month at 53 the Oval
Our reading group met for the first time on 7th November 2011. I had chosen a book by Robert Goddard for everyone to try so that we would have a basis for discussion at our next meeting in a month’s time. We have met regularly every month , apart from when I have been away for long holidays. I am pleased to say that all the original members of the group continue to come to the meetings.
The books we read are provided free by the Hartlepool library which also provides a list of books available for us to borrow, having at least 8 copies of each. We decide which book we would like to borrow and I order it from the library, then collect the copies a few days later, ready for the next meeting. We have varied the type of books , thrillers, classics and adventures.
Apart from discussing the book , we chat about all sorts of topics: films, TV and holidays. It’s a friendly social hour or so, with a cup of tea and biscuit.
