Here is a poll to decide April’s book. Please take the time to vote, I will leave it open for a week.
‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ is my World Book Night book for 2013. I will be receiving a box of it in the next month and anyone who wants a copy is welcome to one. I know that at least 3 of the book club have already read it though.
I would like to revert to taking turns to pick books as I think it worked well. This time we will go alphabetically by surname. So Merle, Sinead, Anne Marie, Jennie, Laura K, Claire, Laura M, Susan, Sarah and Siobhán. (Weird that three of the Ss came last again, sorry girls!). Let me know what ye think or if ye can suggest other ways to pick books.
We brought our kids’ favourite books to discuss at book club this month. As not everyone made it to book club we will do it again at November’s meeting. Here are Orlaith, Oran, Leo, Oscar and Giuseppe’s favourites.
Yvonne in the library phoned today to advise she has 3 copies of Solace by Belinda McKeon for us.
Merle has ‘bagsed’ one. They are in the Reservation section under my name. If you have any problems taking them out just bring to desk and say Yvonne sorted them for our book club. Can you just drop me a text/e-mail to let me know if you are going to take a copy so I’ll know how many left etc.
Good news! Gorey library have kindly agreed to put aside as many copies as possible of our chosen book each month. I will email with details as soon as I have them and they will get back to me when they have a few copies in. We can take turns as to who gets the library copies.
