Greetings book clubbers.

Thanks to everyone who came along last night for another superb meeting. A big welcome to Jacinda & Jessie, hope you both enjoyed your first meeting.

The book for November is still Anna Karenina which everyone seems to be enjoying much to most peopleís surprise. Most have just scratched the surface apart from Michael who is half way through.

The venue is the Clockhouse and the date is 14th November, 7.30 to 8.00ish start time.

At the next meeting we can choose a venue for our Christmas meal.

Carina has set up a Face book group but I am not sure how you join, but do try.

Also check this monthís curry club.

Hoots & porridge,


Chick

This Wednesday for Curry Club, Literature Lovers.

If you fancy coming, could you let me know so that I can book a suitable table?

Greetings book clubbers,

Just a reminder that we meet on 14th November in two weeks. Been a long one this time with 5 weeks between meetings but a welcome since the book is so massive. Hope you are all ploughing through and enjoying it as I am, much to my surprise.

Had a great play which Carina organised but couldnít attend.

Michael, maybe we could combine our Christmas meal with the curry club? Just a thought. No news from Alexia but will let you know.

I will attempt a mass email today.

Och Aye,

Chick.

PS dont forget to be friend us on facebook, see link above.

14/11 is good for me Chick. Page 600ish at the moment. I too am enjoying it.

Also - a combined Curry Club/ Book Club Christmas meal is good. Curry Club have identified Wednesday 12 December as the date with the Mirash Tandoori as the venue. We will meet in the EDT at 7.30 and sit down in the Mirash at 8.30.

I am going to have one more attempt at a mass email. If that fails I will pass it on to someone more competent.

Here is a link to World Book Night 2013. I cant say I find it very inspiring, Andy Mc Nab, it'll be Dan Brown next.

Having had a look there are about five books I would consider and will make notes tomorrow. In the meantime please have a look your self and we can discuss on Wednesday.

Won't hear a word said against Andy McNab. He's one of my fave writers. And isn't his book written specially for readers who struggle or who are reluctant to read - surely the point of WBN?

messageRe: Wednesday night book club.
Posted by badger 11 November, 2012 10:58

that's a fair point -same with the blackman - got loads of kids reading...

messageRe: Wednesday night book club.
Posted by Chick 11 November, 2012 11:20

If thats true then fair enough. It might explain B20 felt like it was written by a 12 year old.

messageRe: Wednesday night book club.
Posted by Chick 11 November, 2012 11:24

Just read the blurb and you were right PG, and it is the point of WBN. Humble pie in the oven.

I could do:
Pearl Earring
Casino Royale
White Queen
Little History
The Island
Treasure Island
No1 Ladies Detective Agency

Hi ya Chick,
I have to say I am absolutely DELIGHTED to see The Dark Judges on there. You should all be sent to the Cursed Earth if its not chosen (JOKE).

Cannot be there Weds to discuss, boo hoo. If there's voting for the Christmas meal venue, the excellent Si Mangia gets my (long-distance) vote. Really enjoyed it when we all went there last year. Or pizza at the Gowlett is always a winner winking smiley

Am DEF going to check out Andy McNab books after PGC's endorsement.

PS was lovely to catch up with you, Vicky and Sheila at the weekend xx

Greetings book clubbers,

A very big thanks to every one who came along last night for a great and full on meeting. Our next book is Gulliverís Travels by Jonathon Swift.

A synopsis can be found here:

[en.wikipedia.org]

I have booked a table for 10 at Si Mangia and I would be grateful if you could confirm by next Friday please. I need to know if you are bringing partners etc. Last time we went there were 12 of us and Si Mangia were very accommodating. Date is for 12th December at 7.30 to 8.00.

[www.simangia.co.uk]

I have ordered 5 copies for me, Chloe, Sarah, Jacinda & Jessie. They will be in Rye Books on Saturday.

Carina, nice pictures. I will take my camera to the meal.

Could you please let me have your nominations for our World Book Night book by next Friday. The sooner we apply the more likely we are to get our choice.

And finally a big welcome to Kat, I hope you enjoyed your first night.

Greetings book clubbers,

Well interesting news, we have our first book club baby, this from Alexia:

Hi Chick. It's a girl! Elspeth Rowena Weeple, born at 1.50am yesterday morning, weighing 6lb 14 oz. We're both well but it was all rather protracted so likely to be in Kings till the weekend. Alexia.

That was sent one day ago so Elspeth was born on 20th. Congrats to all three. I think we should buy a collective book token for Elspeth, even babies get read to.

So far only five confirmations for Si Mangia.

The weather for Saturdays planet gazing isnít looking promising but I will make a decision tomorrow.

I am off to the library.

Chick

Hi,

So far the following have confirmed the Christmas meal: Chloe, me, Megan, Mike, Jessie, Sarah, Leah & John plus two new people which makes ten. If you have confirmed and not on this list let me know please. If any one else wants to come let me know asap so that I can expand the booking.

And if you want to come tomorrow to see Jupiterís moons please do.

Thanks

Chick. PS still about 150 pages of AK left but hugely enjoying GT.

Posted by Michael Palaeologus 27 November, 2012 18:30

Great stuff. Not sure about tomorrow, depends what time I get home.

Finished AK a few days ago. Enjoyed it iverall but I found the last few pages rather disappointing.

Hi there,

I've recently moved to ED and very excited to find a book club...! Wondered if you had room for one more at your next meeting?

Cheers,

Alison

Posted by Chick 02 December, 2012 11:30

Alison, you are very welcome to come to the next meeting, it's our Christmas meal at Si Mangia, see the above thread for details. It's on the 12th December. I look forward to meeting you but please let me know if you are coming so I can book enough room.

Greetings book clubbers,

One week to go for our meal. I have booked 15 places based on the numbers who said they were coming so if you canít or want to pull out please let me know ASAP. One hundred pages left for AK and will finish next year. Big push on to finish Gulliverís Travels which I am enjoying immensely and finding very funny.

Hope the weather is cold enough for you and look forward to London grinding to a standstill when we get one snow flake.

Cheers

Chick

Our next meeting is on the 16th January and will be held in The Draught House in Lordship Lane. I will confirm this next year.
