And so the year trundles on, and with sunshine and bare arms comes our second book group meeting.
I wasn’t sure what to expect of running a book group, especially after seeing the Channel 4 show but so far, it’s been very nice to look after it.
This time we looked at ‘Something Borrowed’ and had a right old debate about whether you should read things as just fun or look beneath for hidden depths.
One person liked it because it was ‘about two old nanas’ who were like Rosemary and Thyme. Another said it reminded them of a Beryl Cook painting and another dubbed it a ‘gothic Last of the Summer Wine’.
This time we had about 20 people, some from the first group and a fair few new faces which was lovely to see. As were the 2 for 1 cocktails at the bar.
Next time we’re looking at The Good Father by Marion Husband and we’re picking our June book pretty soon, so keep checking back for updates.
