A change is as good as a rest yes?

hello all

Hope you’re enjoying the MJ Hyland book for April book group.

Did you know we have now been going for three whole years? Good going for a book group isn’t it? I can honestly say I have had a most wonderful time hosting it, meeting lovely people and reading a massive  stack of interesting  books.

So, it seems a good time to announce that the July group will be my last one as I’m moving to another city to retrain as a midwife (this is not an April fool, although it would be a good one).  If I could move the group I would but I don’t think even our members  are that loyal (ha), but thankfully, it will go on without me hosting, and I’ll be introducing you to your new host soon.

A few other bits of news…

I have free copies of ‘Stuart a life backwards’ for you all to give out at April group on Tuesday 5th April at 6.30pm. It’s very good and was made into a rather brilliant BBC TV show with Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch  – which you can see after you’ve read the book of course!

The list of books for Summer is now up here (and I want you guys to pick July’s book).

And a cheeky bit of promo, I’m selling my house, so if you know anyone who wants to buy a lovely 2 bed terrace in a nice bit of Boro, send them this link please.

See you at the next group (new members ALWAYS welcome)
