Hi, I moved to Redbourn last year and looking to join or start a book club. Could you please let me know of a local one or if anyone is interested in starting one?

April81 Fri 07-Oct-11 21:49:29

I'm fine with the 20th.

Hi! I am ok with the choice of book, but due to moving houses next week it is most likely that I won't be able to read the book on time. Any chance we can postpone it for a week or so??

Thanks x

Can we do first week of November?

ivylady Sun 09-Oct-11 09:47:16

Yes that suits me better as well - what about Thursday 3rd November?

kidsfromfame Sun 09-Oct-11 12:17:31

Hi, I can do 3 November.

April81 Sun 09-Oct-11 18:16:27

Hi, I'm fine with the 3rd of nov as well. So to summarize:

Book: 'Room' by Emma Donoghue. Date of first meeting: 3rd of November

Am I correct in thinking that Harpenden is the best choice for all?

Can't make the 20th - husband might object, given it is our 10th wedding anniversary! But if every one else is free and wants to go ahead then, please do - but let me know the next book and meet up date!

HalleLouja Mon 10-Oct-11 14:21:06

April am happy with that plan.

ivylady Tue 11-Oct-11 22:25:38

Oh no - now I can't make the 3rd November, but please go ahead and maybe I can join next session.

I am ok with the book choice but won't have enough time to read it before the suggested date - just moved houses yesterday. Is there any chance we could postpone it for a week or so?

Please ignore my previous message. I missed the second page. 3rd of november fine by me too.

April81 Wed 12-Oct-11 10:14:18

Is Harpenden suitable for all?

HalleLouja Wed 12-Oct-11 11:33:49

Yes. Need to order the book now.

April81 Wed 12-Oct-11 23:07:50

Ok..Harpenden it is then.

April81 Mon 24-Oct-11 21:27:37

Hi All,

Does anyone have any sugesstions on where to meet in Harpenden?

There's Costa and Cafe Nero and some other local coffee shops. I think most are open until 6.00/7.00 p.m. during the week days.

There's also The Harpenden Arms,The Slug and Lettuce and The George for pubs...

kidsfromfame Wed 26-Oct-11 14:28:43

Hi April81

Do you think it would be best to meet in a pub, as you say,- coffee shops close quite early in the evening.

I'm new to Harpenden, so haven't actually sampled any of the local pubs yet. Do you have a preference on any that you have listed? A quieter one, perhaps? I'm not sure loud music would encourage our discussion.......!

April81 Fri 28-Oct-11 15:38:05

Hi kidsfromfame,

I haven't been to many of the pubs in Harpenden either..but have noticed the The Harpenden Arms tends to get pretty busy. If it's ok with everyone shall we try The George?? smile

Hi April81,

It's all gone very quiet on this thread.

Is anyone else still up for Thursday?

April81 Tue 01-Nov-11 16:33:02

Hi, I'm not really sure what happened...there were a few others who were interested in meeting up on Thursday. I'm still up for you think we should just go ahead and hope ( fingers crossed) we get a few more responses tomorrow??

ivylady Tue 01-Nov-11 20:01:36

Hi - still interested in joining the book club, I just can't do this Thursday,

kidsfromfame Wed 02-Nov-11 13:59:36

Hi april81 and ivylady

Well, seeing as ivylady suggested Room, shall we see if the three of us (and anyone else who wishes!) can meet up one evening next week instead? Do you have any windows in your diaries? Or maybe you're both much busier than me!?

April81 Wed 02-Nov-11 15:29:41

Hi both, what about the 10th of novemeber?

kidsfromfame Thu 03-Nov-11 09:10:26

Hi. 10th is good for me.

eggandtoastedsoldiers Sun 06-Nov-11 11:35:19

I love to join in too, I'm in Harpenden as well

April81 Sun 06-Nov-11 23:47:05

Hi eggsandtoastedsoldiers, Can you make it on the 10th of November?
