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?

Hi Ali,

You would be very welcome to join us - as roundwood said we are currently reading Little Alice.

We are next due to meet in the Old Cock Inn on the High Street at 8pm on 27th March, and you can spot us as we are usually the only group of 6-7 ladies with books / kindles on the tables!

Hope to see you there and welcome to the area!

Excellent! I assume you mean Still Alice by the way. I look forward to meeting everyone on the 27th March.

Dragontrainer2 Sat 09-Mar-13 12:07:53

Yes, it is Still Alice not Little Alice - hope you enjoy it (if "enjoy" is the right word; I cried buckets!) Hopefully see you in March!

Oh dear I think baby brain is becoming a real problem! Have just turned up for our book group a day late! It was only good fortune that I bumped into one of the ladies who was there meeting a friend or I probably would have sat there for 1/2 an hour wondering where you all were :-)

How much of a numpty do I feel?!!!

Needless to say that is the second month I've missed and I'm determined to make it next time! Do let me know the date and book and I will stick it in the diary!

juneau2 Sat 27-Apr-13 13:39:34

Oh no! I'm glad you bumped into one of the others - we missed you on Weds.

This month's book is 'Tom-All-Alone's' by Lynn Shepherd. Our next meeting is on Weds 22nd May at 8pm, usual place. Hope to see you then x

Absolutely - just come along to the Old Cock on the High Street on Harpenden High Street on the 26th! We can usually be identified by being the group with books on the table . . .

Hi, I'm keen to make some local friends but I am a bit daunted about turning up to book club, do you all share contact details so that if I'll have an idea who I am looking for? I assume the next date is 27th October?

Maplesyrup75 Tue 05-Nov-13 13:39:04
