Hi everyone

I noticed there's a previous thread on here which hasn't been active for a while so wondered if anyone was interested in starting up a new book club / picking up the previous one?

Hopefully we could set up something that'd be fun and informal and a place all us bookworms to have a good ole natter!  :)

Hi Laney,



I'd be very interested. I've always wanted to start one at work but only a couple of us there read.

Let's bump this for a while to see if more people are interested.

Hi and welcome kitty, carrieanne and nordickat!  :) Hello again jo-a  :)

Yay we have the makings of a group! Hmm not sure what we do now....  ;D... are you reading anything at the mo that we could all pick up or shall we start in a few weeks? or is everyone ready to start now? We could work it so that we each get a chance to choose a book and then after say 4 or 6 weeks arrange a date to catch up and have a chat about it?  I noticed the other group did a poll for the type of book to choose but iv no idea how we do this? Questions questions...!x x

Haha !! In all the excitement didn't consider the next step  ;D

I am ready whenever I'll try an find out about the poll and report back asap on that I havnt read anything for a while maybe we could choose something out the current best sellers list maybe ? Just an idea . Arranging a date after a few weeks of reading  sounds good laney

To have a poll we have to start a new poll instead of new topic we could do that or just say what we like on our posts what do you's think ?

Hi there

I would love to join too! I am already in a bookgroup in my town - but you can never read too many books!  ;D

My fave authors include Rose Tremain, Susan Hill, Peter James, Sara Waters so mix of everything really esp contemporary fiction, historical fiction and crime. Up for anything. I have just started reading The Room by Emma Donoghue. Not sure its the right upbeat type of thing though as it is about a mum and small boy imprisoned in a room. It was recommended to me by a pregnant friend and will be on the TV bookclub- but maybe something more upbeat would be better?!  :) :) :)

Morning everyone,

;D I didn't consider how you actually 'do' a book club either. I just thought I'd like it as I'm a complete bookworm. When I die I plan to be reincarnated as a bookshop owner, one with a little coffee shop attached  :) . Can you believe my Dh wants me to get a Kindle so I stop filling the house with books  :eek: it's just not right if you ask me!

Mistygal - I'm reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, which isn't very upbeat either. I can finish it quickly and start something new though. I haven't read The Room yet but I'll read anything I'm told to.

Hi everyone and welcome Twiceblessed & Mistygal, I look forward to chatting with you and the other ladies on here  :)

Kat – you’re book/coffee shop idea sounds fab, and I totally agree on the kindle thing, dh wanted to get me one for xmas to save space but I said no ta it’ll just gather dust! He’d should build me a library instead  ;D

Thanks for looking up the poll thing jo-a, happy to go with saying what we like on our posts. So here goes……

I’m a fan of a typical romcom! Sad I know, Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella, Katie Fforde etc. are some of my faves and was also hooked on twilight saga but fear not, over the past year I have broadened my horizons and I’m totally happy to read anything provided it holds my attention for more than 5 minutes.  ;D

Hehe well until now I never even knew about the TV book club! So that’s what the green specsavers sticker is….  ^idiot^  Shall we pick something from there? I don’t mind if it’s not the most upbeat book as long as it avoids the ‘you know what’ subject!!

Laney - stear clear of My Daughters Keeper. Its a afb book but veyr much about the taboo subject. My DH has put library lower down the list than wine cellar but I thought that was OK as the only thing that beats hiding yourself in a book is doing it with a glass of vino  :) It seems we have very different taste as I had to even look up Katie Fforde  :-[ so I obviously need to expand my horizons.

I'm not in the UK so rely on amazon and the last 2 orders I did I just chose randomly and all I did was make sure it had a good rating and that was it. Its so exciting that way, and so far so good.

I just checked out the TV book club book list and I'll happily read any of them.

Hi all,

I'm happy with any choice, I'll check out the TV list.

My DP was a real Bibliophobe (although he did manage to read a Jeremy Clarkson autobiography once) but then I introduced him to audiobooks. He does love a good story so I read and he listens and it works!! My cookbook fetish drives him crazy though  ;D
