Apologies for the day delay in getting the voting on the website. Voting for February is now open, so please go to the Books Voting page on here and place your vote. I’ll announce the winning title at our next meeting.
Talking of next meetings, we’ll be meeting on Friday 9th December to discussing ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’, which is the short story collection here. We’ll be having a mini festive party with more food compared to normal (mmm) so be there or be square*
Our next session after that is in January, Friday 13th January where we will be discussing ‘Max’ by Sarah Cohen-Scali. This is the book that we chose but I pushed back to January.
I hope you have a great month! Happy Reading🙂
*if you can’t make it I hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year period.
For those of you that were at the session last week you will already know this, just a reminder to say that there has been a change of plans with what book we are reading in November, we will be reading David Almond’s ‘Skellig’ instead. Thank you for agreeing with the change…
Which then leads on to the next two months after that. Obviously 9th December is when we have our Christmas party and we will be discussing our Winter themed book I’ll be Home for Christmas although I also said to anyone who also wanted to read A Christmas Carol we would spend a few mins talking about that too.
Finally we will then be reading Max on Friday 14th January, so all I did was move the date back. Sorry if you have been reading ahead for the shift in month.
Wowee, what a fun filled three months. I look forward to seeing you soon.
With our next session approaching in two days time I thought I’d check out where we were for voting for November and we do have a winner, so I thought I’d announce it now then wait until Friday.
We will be reading…
Max by Sarah Cohen-Scali on Friday 11th November.
Which you can purchase on our website here. We do have copies in stock in the bookshop and the library have two that aren’t already on loan.
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday for ‘The Girl of Ink and Stars’! Don’t forget to come with some Christmas related suggestions for December.
Just thought I’d pop up a little message to remind you all that voting is up for November’s read on the book voting page.
Also, don’t forget to bring along some Christmassy or winter suggestions for the next session so we can look at voting for December.
Next session is on Friday 9th September, I look forward to seeing you then.
As I think most of you have voted, I thought I’d declare now what the next two books we are going to read are going to be. Results are:
Friday 9th September– The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood-Hargrave
Friday 14th October– After Tomorrow by Gillian Cross
I look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks time on Friday 19th August.
Just a little heads up that the date has changed for the August meet up, we are now meeting on Friday 19th August. For anyone not at the meeting, sorry I had to change it, a family friend is getting married on that day and I’m off to the wedding.
On another note, I got a poll in the book voting page again! Huzzah. So please vote via the poll on the page. As it would be good to be ahead another month, we’ll do the two titles with the most votes and pick for October too, that way we’re always knowing what the book after the next months meet is for anyone wanting or needing to read ahead.
Hope you have a good 5 weeks and I look forward to seeing you in August.
Just a little reminder that our next session is next week on Friday 8th July to discuss ‘When we Collided’. I still have my copy so please do shout if you would like to borrow it.
Our meeting in August is taking place on Friday 12th August where we will be discussing ‘The Leaving’ by Tara Altebrando. I have also finished reading my copy of this, so again please do say if you’re struggling to get a copy and want to borrow it.
I look forward to seeing you next week.
