Have you ever had a book club book that you were ashamed to show in public?

<snurk> not so far. But thankfully mine is one where we tend to choose a concept or genre and we get to pick our own from that wink

Are you all in book clubs? God, I am so out of it.

In my defence I did start up a book club at Uni with a whole bunch of people I didn't know.

So clearly book clubs are very 2001, it's all about the knitting and craft clubs don't ya know?wink

My mum and her friends started one at work. I joined to get out of the house for a few hours every month and drink tea blush

I very much do NOT fit in. I am always vaguely treated like the kid who was brought along because mum couldn't get a babysitter.

<snurk>@flamesparrow for being taken along with mummy grin

Could you see if there is a more diverse one in your area?

I've never been in one, but I would cringe at something like The Lovely Bones <shudder>

I made DH burn the copy of The Alchemist that came home from his grin

But, Lupusina, I love pronouncing the author's name even though I've never read it - it's like a Buddhist chant...

PS I know Lupusina shouldn't be your name, but it has become a real one to me...maybe we should roadtest it on baby names?

Go on, Boff, do it! grin

I haven't got the heart - mum would be offended I think! Plus it would mean meeting strangers shock which terrifies me.

BitOfFun Sat 18-Jul-09 21:16:47

Lupusina - I've done it!
