Bringing people together

Book Circle

The Book Circle group meets monthly and, at present, has eight members. We would welcome additional members.

As a result of the further easing of Covid restrictions, our next meeting will take place in person as we used to before Covid. We will meet indoors or outdoors according to the weather. July’s meeting was outdoors in very pleasant weather, and a good time was had by all.

Each month we all have the same book to read provided by Ash Library and ordered by our group leader. The choice comes from members’ suggestions, and we aim to choose books that are enjoyable and thought provoking.

Lively discussions on the book take place at each meeting and everyone’s opinion is respected, no matter how opposed it is to that of others. After our discussion, we give each book a score out of 10 and a one-word reaction. All this is followed by tea and biscuits, and sometimes cake!

We don’t charge a subscription, but do ask for a small contribution of about £5 a year to cover library reservation costs.

Some books that we have read recently, with ratings out of 10, are :

  • Frederica by Georgette Heyer 8.6
  • The  Foundling by Stacey Halls 8.4
  • The Island Song by Madeleine Bunting 8.2
  • Shroud for a Nightingale by P.D. James 8.4
  • The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan 8.0
  • Wildfire at Midnight by Mary Stewart 7.1

Next Zoom Meeting: August 20th 2:30pm – the book of the month is Coffin Road by Peter May

Leader: David Murray 01252 904375

Day & Time: 3rd Friday in the Month at 14:30
