Book Circle 2
Book Circle 2
We now have 9 members and we now meet in member’s homes on a rotation basis. Meetings are monthly throughout the year on the fourth Friday morning of the month. We do not focus on a particular type of book, preferring to select from the diverse range offered by Hampshire Libraries. If members ask for a particular book, I try to book it for our group.
We enjoy good discussions, coffee and biscuits, and a lot of chat, sometimes serious, sometimes just fun! We find that some of our best discussions take place when most of us haven't liked the book. "The Wasp Factory" by Iain Banks, a book most of us wouldn't have chosen, was a real eye-opener. We thought that Lionel Shriver's "We Need to talk about Kevin" an excellent study of a mother/son relationship when the two do not bond: that was such a good read. We also had mixed views about John Steinbeck`s Cannery Row, but found there was much to enjoy.
Our members are a busy bunch, including myself, so we do not attempt any outside activities, but I do keep the group informed of anything going on in the local library or in the U3A.
