I have the following Book Club announcement from Zoë:
The first Berylune book club meeting went very well and was good fun. There were five of us which meant we were able to have a good discussion of our chosen book, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. If you haven’t read The Book Thief then we can highly recommend it!
We now have the difficult task of choosing our next book. We came up with a shortlist during the meeting and we would like your votes on what we should read next. We hope that allowing you to help choose the book might encourage you to read it and join us at our next meeting. We are going to meet again on Monday 29th April. You have until 18th March to vote and the next book club choice will be announced a day or two later.
Dracula – Bram Stoker
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – Jonathan Safran Foer
The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox – Maggie O’Farrell
Sisters Brothers - Patrick deWitt
Votes will be accepted from the comments section below, Facebook & Twitter. Also, we have decided to reduce the contribution from £3 to £2 per person, as Book Club is more concise than knit and natter! We're also going to start at 6.15pm, so everyone has time to get there from work.
In other news, Gladys took a tumble yesterday, we very nearly lost her between the floorboards with all of the missing crochet hooks, pins, needles and coins that have accumulated over the last, well, goodness knows how long. It's an old building!
What adventures she might have had.
And I finished my VAT return. Rock on.
