There has been a few articles in the press this week about book clubs and making recommendations for how to make them work. These include not too much alcohol and no pre 1900 books. There seemed to by criticism of their success. I have been in the same book group for over 21 years. I joined when I was new to this area and I have made a lot of good friends as a result. We met last night and I had a lovely time, with wine and nibbles, followed by coffee and cake. We read lots of interesting books and the odd poor choice. I just love meeting others who share the same pleasure in reading. Perhaps that is why I like visiting this Forum on the TES site.
