Books C has been running since January 2009 and the Group has read a diverse range of books, mostly 20th and 21st century novels, but some short stories and classics too.
Most of our books are chosen from the book lists supplied by the Wokingham Library Book Service for book groups. Occasionally we purchase our own copies from book shops, charity shops or online from suppliers such as Amazon.
One member volunteers to introduce the book at each meeting and we always find a wide range of views and have a lively discussion. Many of us joined the group to broaden our range of reading and we are managing to do this.
Meetings are held at members’ homes. We have a high attendance rate so membership is limited to 10 people. After discussing the selected book for that month we have tea and biscuits and a chat, often about what other books we are reading.
No charge is made for attending meetings although a small sum is due in March each year to cover the cost of our subscription to the Library’s Book Collection Service.
Anyone requiring more information should contact the convenor by phone.
