Sorry for radio silence- work has been taking too much attention and Iíve been away a ton for work too. Iím going to be away on the last biz trip of this contract until 26th September so if we could delay one week Iíll be there.
Hope everyone is well - looking forward to catching up

Nice to see you all last night! We chose the book ĎLifeí by Keith Richards for our next read and weíll meet on Tuesday 6 November at the Tipplers at 7:45 for 8. Hope to see you there! Nb the 3 tapas deal doesnít seem to be on anymore but there is still a good selection of small plates.

Anyone wanting to join us, you are welcome - just read the book and turn up. We usually sit in the front by the windows.

Nice to see you all last night (:

Kenneth graciously offered to provide a list for immediate vote for our December book - we will meet on Tuesday 11 December at the usual time 7:45pm for 8...

Iím going to do a list for our January book

See you soon

Hello Everyone, here's the list as promised, the theme is New Year's Eve. If you can PM me your choice, I'll post the winner next week.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight 208 PP
At Camelot one New Year's Day the feasting knights are interrupted by a gigantic green knight who arrives for a trial of blows. Sir Gawain decapitates him, but he picks up his head and leaves, challenging Gawain to meet him next New Year's Day, when he will have to bare his neck for a return blow.

A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen 74 PP
At Christmas, Nora and her husband talk about how everything will be better in the New Year: he will have a new job and all their money worries will be over. Nora tells the threatening Krogstad: "As soon as the new year comes, I shall in a very short time be free of the whole thing." So she is, but not as she imagined Ė slamming the door on her family as the new year dawns.

White Teeth by Zadie Smith 608 PP
Smith's novel begins on New Year's Day 1975, with Archie Jones trying to kill himself. He fails and ends up at a New Year's Eve party that is still going from the night before. There he meets Clara, a vision of eccentric perfection, and before long he has another wife.

The Children of Men by PD James 292 PP
Is this the glummest new year in recent fiction? On New Year's Day, 2021, "the last human being to be born on earth was killed in a pub brawl". He was 25, a significant age because, in James's dystopian tale, it has been 25 years since a pandemic made all human beings infertile. On the same day Theodore Faron begins his journal of humanity's last days.
