This is the new home of this thread which has now died as none of the active particpants want to operate behind the new local barrier.
For any newbies - we are meeting usually on the last monday of each month (plus or minus a week depending on other things going on). The dates of our next 2 meetings were fixed last time we met but I am not 100% sure of them, hopefully one of the others will be along in a moment to confirm them. Venues are variable and we take it in turns whether they are north or south of the river so everyone has occasions when the meeting is nearer to them.
We are deciding the books 2 months in advance to give ourselves plenty of time to find a copy and read it. We decide which book to schedule by concensus at the end of each meeting - anyone can suggest one.
Our next meeting will be at the end of November and we are reading "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" by Philip K Dick
The next meeting (which will be in mid January) will be looking at "The Magicians" by Lev Grossman.
This thread is in danger of getting zombie status, but for the benefit of less regular members or new people - this bookclub is still going but is mainly communicating via facebook these days. If you want to get access to the facebook group, send a personal message to any of the active members in this thread giving your facebook name and we'll arrange to add you.
Our next meeting has been planned for 13th January and we are reading Anne Tyler "Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant" - I'm not sure whether a venue has been confirmed yet, it may be the Tobacco Factory as it is south-of-the-river's turn.
