Bringing people together

Book Circle

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

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

  • The Salt Path by Raynor Wynn 8.6
  • 500 Miles from You, by Jenny Colgan 7.9
  • Still Life by Val McDermid 8.7
  • Warriors of the Storm by Bernard Cornwell 6.4
  • The Grantchester Mysteries: Sydney Chambers and the Shadow of Death, by James Runcie 7.6
  • The Miseducation of Evie Epworth by Matson Taylor 7.6

Next Meeting: July 15th  at 2:30pm – the book of the month is A Room Full of Leaves by Kate Grenville.

Leader: David Murray 01252 904375
