Dear Book group,


Our next meeting will be on 17th June 2015. I will confirm regards the Blake Room.


I went in to Rye books last Saturday and was told off because two copies of Any Human Heart had been ordered and not collected. This was the second time this has happened. This was very embarrassing. Alistair has very tight margins and we cant be costing him monies. So if you order books please make sure you collect them. He gives us a very good service and it's simply not fair to treat him like this. One possible solution maybe to have him deliver and we can discuss at the next meeting.



Thanks,





Chick.

Dear book clubbers,


The next book group meeting is due to be on the 17th June. Unfortunately the Blake room is booked. We can either go a head and have our meeting in the snug or we can have the Blake room on the 6th June, Tuesday.


I can do either and don't mind but please let me know your preference ASAP.

Dear Book group,

Thanks to every one who came to our last meeting which was lively & interesting. I am afraid Kracken didn't go down well, Sarah being the only one who finished. I gave up after 130 pages, 30 short of my target of reading at least one third before giving up if I hate it. This happened with Wolf Hall and A.S. Byatt The Childrens Book.

Also a big welcome to Hannah.

Our next meeting is on the 15th July in The Clockhouse, not sure if we are having the Blake room or the snug but I will let you know.

Our next book is Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. This looks really good. I forgot to ask if anyone wants to order through Rye books, tel 0203 581 1850 if you wish you can order for your self.

[www.theguardian.com]

I have been to Iceland and am looking forward to this book.

Silka Is your party happening on 4th July? If yes and you want me to pass on details I can do individual emails.

I'll be writing to the BBC about going on book club some time in the autumn.

All the best & I hope to see you on the 15th July.

Dear Book group,

I mentioned a possible trip to Chislehurst caves and there was some interest.

I propose to go on Saturday 22nd August for about 1.00pm which gives us time to do the caves and have a beer after.

The next meeting is on the 19th so we can discuss more then but can you let me know if you are interested.

Cheers




Chick

Dear Book clubbers,

I have tentatively booked us as a group for Chislehurst Caves on the 22nd. There is a minimum charge of £90.00. So if we are ten that’s £9.00 each. The tour is 45 minutes. I have some space in my car. Alternatively we could just turn up and take pot luck, no minimum charge, just £6.00 each. In any case can we meet at 12.45. Please let me know if you are coming and what your preference is. To the three new people coming to the book group on 19th this invite is also open to you.

All the best,


Chick.

Dear book group,

Some time next year I am going to propose we read a book called The Magic Furnace by Marcus Chown. It’s a story of how scientists’ discovered the origin of our atoms.

A brief description:

Every atom in our bodies has an extraordinary history. Our blood, our food, our books, our clothes – everything contains atoms forged in blistering furnaces deep inside stars, which were blown into space by those stars’ cataclysmic explosions and deaths. From red giants – stars so enormous they could engulf a million suns – to supernova explosions – the most violent events in the universe – the birth of every atom was marked by cosmic events on an enormous scale, against a backdrop of unimaginable heat and cold, brightness and darkness, space and time. But how did we discover the astonishing truth about our cosmic origins? The Magic Furnace is Marcus Chown’s extraordinary account of how scientists unravelled the mystery of atoms, and helped to explain the dawn of life. It is one of the greatest detective stories in the history of science. In fact, it is two puzzles intertwined, for the stars contain the key to unlocking the secret of atoms, and the atoms the solution to the secret of stars.

Having convinced our self’s that we are made the same stuff as stars and rocks I propose inviting a local philosopher to lead a discussion on the book and on consciousness and why we have it, where it comes from and why rocks don’t.
This wont suit everyone so we will choose another book more aligned to our usual books that can be read in parallel.
Also some time maybe before Christmas I am going to propose a trip to the Science museum to go to this exhibition:
[www.sciencemuseum.org.uk]

So please let me know your thoughts on the above. See you on the 12th.

Our next book is All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer.

Dear book group,

I wish to suggest that for the November book we read Michel Faber's latest book The Book of Strange New Things which is in paper back now.

If possible he will come down from Scotland for our January meeting which will be on Wednesday 20th. It's a big book so as usual I wont suggest a book for December as I think we will need 2 months to read this one. See below.

[www.theguardian.com]

I would also like to set Wednesday 9th December for our end of year meal. We had Thai last year and can I have your suggestions for this year, preferably in Lordship Lane.

Please let me know your thoughts.

All the best,

Chick

From Michel:

> Is there any possibility that you will be in London mid or late January?

Nothing is planned for January and I am trying to keep my head down & work on the Eva stories after my travel excesses earlier this year. But if your book group are definitely going to be doing the book, I would try to come down for that regardless. At the very least, if I found that it was just impossible to make it down, I would render myself available for that evening to any emails that anyone in the group wanted to fire off to me on the spot, and I would answer them within minutes. But if possible I would try to actually be there. Please let me know the exact date as soon as you know it yourself.
