great progress!

Hi,

I just checked up on this to see if any progress was made and it looks like things are up and running big time. I've up to me whatsits in work over the last couple of weeks and forgot about it.

Anyway, I'm kinda glad I missed 'The Life of Pi' cause I couldn't warm to it :confused:when I read it. Tigers and Zebras on boats ain't my thing.

Am I to take it that book is done and dusted now after last nights meeting and has a decision been made on the next book and meeting date?

Pretty much, there may be a quick recap on the 4th as a few people hadn't quite finished the book.

Get started on The Time Travellers wife by Audrey Niffenegger.

I'm going to set up a facebook group for the club to hopefully attract some more members

I had a great night last night. Great fun and behold...the bar wasn't full of Rag Week students. I was surprised actually.

That's would be great Matt. How does that work actuall? I'm sure I asked you last night about it.

I liked Life of Pi by the way but I really don't see why it got such acolades.

Hi Guys, glad last night was a success. I'm sorry I couldn't make it last night I have an exam tomorrow and it's taken more time to study for than I anticipated and so didn't get the book finished. Will start on Time Travellers wife. Looking forward to next time.
The facebook group sounds like a good idea.

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder that the current book we are reading in BookClub is The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Neffenigger, in case any newcomers are unsure of what's going on. The book will be discussed at our next meeting @ Bar No.8, 7:30pm on the 4th March.

Happy Reading and hope to see you there

Hambo, I would pick up the book for you...but I'm extremely broke

If you like, you could "donate" or "Bertie" some money to me to act as BookClub moderator. I will reinvest this money into the club...and buy booze for me.

Sound good?
