Greetings everybody,

In the end I couldn’t finish NW. The style of writing changed and I hated it, I wanted to burn the thing.

The Blake room is booked on the 16th so we have booked the snub area downstairs. Emily & Christiene, hope you enjoyed your first meeting and that it wasn’t too weird in the beginning!

Hi

I haven't been before but would like to come along to the next one if that's ok

I'm having trouble finding the book though, is that definitely the title?

Sara,

My mistake, it's called "Code of the Woosters" and it's quite funny. Hope to see you on the 16th.

Dear Book clubbers,

Just a reminder of our meeting next week in the Clockhouse at 8.00pm in the snug bar downstairs.

I have another 10 Wodehouse books and I do not propose doing any more unless individuals want along side whatever book we choose for November. So if you want a Wodehouse book email me please. I must admit to my surprise I enjoyed it and will read the next one alongside the mainstream book.

Any of the new people who expressed an interest in coming please just turn up, we don’t bite!

Hoots & hugs,


Chick.

Greetings book clubbers,

Thanks to every one who came along last Wednesday, a big welcome to Sara. Our next book is “The Universe versus Alex Woods” by Gavin Extence.

A review is here; [www.theguardian.com]

It sounds quite good. For those who read the last Wodehouse book could you please go to this site and write some words about the book;

[readinggroups.org]

And once again thanks to the Clockhouse for hosting us.

Books have been ordered from Rye Books for me, Sheila & Alexia.

As for Wodehouse being a Nazi sympathiser here is a link:

All the best and see you next month.

Dear Chick,

We’re very proud to announce that later this year World Book Night will be becoming part of The Reading Agency, the UK charity with a mission to give everyone an equal chance to become a reader. We're also very excited to announce plans for World Book Night 2014.

Read on to find out:
About World Book Night 2014
Why we've joined The Reading Agency
How it affects you and your data

We hope you’ll share our excitement in this next chapter for World Book Night and we look forward to celebrating with you on April 23.

Best wishes,

World Book Night and The Reading Agency



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


World Book Night 2014
World Book Night will be celebrated on April 23 2014. On November 23 we will announce the World Book Night titles and open the application process to be a book giver. But this year will be a little different and for the first time there are two ways to volunteer to take part.

As in previous years we're aiming to reach the 35.2% of adults in this country who don't regularly read via a network of book givers who'll sign up to give copies of one of 20 specially chosen and produced books. We're looking specifically for individuals or institutions who can demonstrably reach these people.

In addition, for the first time, we're looking to build a true army of book-loving volunteers. We want everyone who wants to take part in World Book Night to have a chance to participate, so we're introducing a new way of volunteering. All we're asking is for volunteers to commit to give at least one book to someone who doesn't regularly read on April 23. It can be any book, bought specially or taken from your shelves, but we'll be providing lots of guidance and resources (including stickers and book plates to explain that the book is part of World Book Night). And of course if you can and want to give more than one book, then that's great. We're setting our sights high and by 2017 we hope there'll be 100,000 World Book Night volunteers across the UK and Ireland – and that you'll be one of them.

Read more information on both volunteering opportunities

Read the FAQs including how we're choosing this year's books


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Why is World Book Night joining The Reading Agency?

Since World Book Night started three years ago as an independent charity, we have always worked with partners to make World Book Night happen. The Reading Agency was a founding partner, and has worked very closely with World Book Night each year. Joining formally with The Reading Agency is a natural progression for World Book Night that will allow us to continue to celebrate books and reading in our local communities and to put books into the hands of the third of adults in the UK who don’t read.

How this affects you and your data
As you have previously registered with World Book Night, this email is to inform you that, subject to final agreement, after November 22 all personal information held by World Book Night about you will be transferred to The Reading Agency to enable them to continue to run World Book Night. The Reading Agency has exciting plans for developing World Book Night over the coming years in order to enhance the aims and objectives of promoting reading to the 35.2% of people who don't read. The Reading Agency will abide by the current World Book Night terms and conditions and privacy policy, and will inform you before making any changes to these conditions, giving you the opportunity to opt out if you wish.

If you are happy with your data being transferred to The Reading Agency, you do not need to do anything.

If you do not want your data to transfer to The Reading Agency, please unsubscribe before November 22.

This is a very exciting time for World Book Night – thank you for being part of it.

Greetings,

Just a reminder that we are meeting this Wednesday at 8.00pm in the Clockhouse.

Are there any more takers for the December meal?

Do you want to do a Bookclub recording with the BBC in January at Broadcasting house?

We would have to read the book and ask one question. The recording is on January 20th. The book is "The Slap".
