Book Club meeting

A surprisingly uneventful meeting....

We didnt get banned from anywhere, which was a good start for us (!) and our chat was mostly... umm.. sortof.....well, partly about books. We did have a good catch-up with what's going on in each other's lives.....

we got around to the books eventually.

And we had a new member...a teeny tiny and very cute, adorable new member who is the daughter of G (a member who has been with us from the start).

I stand by the marks I gave last months books.

I did eventually finish the Gideon Mack book and it seems that I was the only one that liked it in our group; every one else preferred The Observations.

This months choices look like this:

The Interpretation of a Murder by Jed Rubenfield
The woman in white by Wilkie Collins.

Both look pretty good and I have a feeling my MIR may like the Jed Rubenfield choice.

I did a lot of bookwhoring yesterday...more on that later. But suffice to say, No more books till next months book club choices....

At least I'm not going to run out of books!

You're right! I do find the Jed Rubenfield book most interesting. :D

Oh, you should know that Rubenfield's book isn't coming out in paperback here until May 15, per Amazon. So, unless I purchase the hardcover, I'll have to wait (although, I could pre-order, as I've done with the upcoming Harry Potter book :D).

If you'd like, I can send you a paperback copy. It's in all the supermarkets at the moment, so it's not expensive.. and it'll save on the long wait. Just email your address to me if you'd like the book :)

I pre-ordered harry too. I wasnt going too, but when I was shopping in WHSmiths, I got a free book AND £5 off the books I was buying that day! What an offer eh?


gdtownshende said...

Oh, that would be cool, Maria! :D I was looking to see if I had your email address somewhere, but if I ever did, I can't remember.

How about we begin this exchange with you emailing me your email address. You can reach me at
