You Know I Mentioned About Book Groups…

A very short blog today but sometimes the smallest things can have the biggest news in them. I should get straight to the point shouldn’t I rather than simply just waffle on endlessly which frankly could happen couldn’t it?

The other week I mentioned that I really wanted to join a book group but had been having real problems finding a good one in the flesh or online. Well you all sent me some wonderful thoughts and ideas, I did particularly like the idea of a Skype book group. However randomly I had a chat with the lovely Kimbofo who is a fellow London book blogger and we have come to the conclusion that we will be starting one together in London Town.

We would welcome anyone who wishes to join us, though you do have to take a literary quiz in order to be accepted… that last bit is a joke, can you imagine if we were insistent on that, I would fail it and not be allowed into my own group. So if you are interested in coming along to the meetings which will be held once a month then please drop either me or Kimbofo an email via our blogs and we look forward to getting to know you. We are just tweaking how the group is going to work but everyone will be able to choose a book in turn but all will be revealed at the first meeting when all we ask is that people bring along their very favourite read… I look forward to your emails!

If there ever was a time when I wished I lived in London, this was it (this and when I learned you lived close to Tom Rob Smith). I will be there with you in spirit, and will look forward to your updates!

I don't think I'd be able to come regularly, but I'd be interested in coming along to the first meeting, to see what it is all about.

I guess it also depends where/when you are thinking of holding it as it is quite a distance for me.

I'll send you an email.

yet another reason for me to hurry up and move to London :) Sounds like great fun

Would be there in a jiffy if I didn't live in Hong Kong......this makes me yearn to come back home.
Would be happy to follow via the blog, do you have any thoughts about that?

I agree with others - so wishing I lived in London (for this and other reasons!). Sounds like you will have a great group.

This might be the only time I wish I lived in London! But since I'm already in *ahem* four book groups, I think I probably shouldn't join another one, anyway, should I?
