Virginia Woolf... hmm tried hard with her but not for me. Found I had to concentrate too much whereas Enchanted April was an easy read. But I wouldn't have read it if I hadn't joined the book club, I'm enjoying reading stuff I wouldn't have otherwise picked up

Agree that book club is a good way of reading things you wouldn't normally choose. Have reserved next month's book from the library - see you at the end of March!

Racking brains for an escapist read with more bite. Trying to remember stories where characters are discovering their true selves in hot country and can only come up with Evelyn Waugh's Scoop - not quite what we were looking for but incredibly funny all the same.

What a great night's chat, thanks everyone. I've loved doing this book.

See you on Tue 31 March to discuss WHAT WAS LOST by Catherine O'Flynn. Hoping to get an author chat for this one, will keep you posted...
