Dory that idea sounds great, haven't heard of that kindof book club before. I like reading non fiction books like about peoples travels, lives and that sort of thing & it mightn't be a book anyone else would be interested in, so something like that sounds good!

If anyone would be interested in this kinna thing, maybe we could try it out? I'm not much of a fiction reader so wouldn't be going to a regular book club.
Hi, I would be really interested in this idea as oppose to a book club (may not like the book chosen and may not have it finished in time for the meeting etc)
Have you had any takers for it?

There was a short story today by Kevin Barry called ' The Girls and the Dogs ' in the Irish times . Cork readers might be interested with mentions o Barack Street and Togher in the story .

It's not exactly high literature, but is anybody reading "A Song of Ice and Fire"? I'm obsessed.

I do miss the classics; I'm used to moving seamlessly from Tolstoy to Dostoevsky to Kafka and the like. However, if a lack of beauty in his writing style needs compensating for, the point-of-view characterisation of the plot and the absolutely riveting storyline more than make up for it.

I'll really badly need somewhere to go from here, though. Can anybody recommend me something gripping, something engrossing?
