Friday night saw one of my most eagerly awaited nights out when we hold our book club review of the year. As always a great night with great people and much discussion on the books we’ve read over the year. It has been a weird year for us as one of our original members left but that in itself has given us the chance to try some new things, such as getting the members of the Culture Vulture to choose one of our books and then having someone come along and write a blog on their experiences of our monthly review meetings. As a result I find myself really looking forward to our next year of books wondering what the year will bring; new members? different approaches to selection of books? more social network interaction? – who knows but it’s all good.
We’ve read some good stuff this year with some of the more memorable ones being:
- Alone in Berlin – Hans Fallada
- As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning – Laurie Lee
- The Princess Bridge – William Goldman
- We – Yevgeny Zamyatin
