First big book club meeting...

I made this: Avid Reader at 7:48 pm
...will be up later this week. This is not THAT blog.

I just wanted to say that I was thrilled by the meeting that we had tonight! It was brilliant to put faces to twitter names...and actual names, and I always love being connected with other bookie people, so even before the meeting had started, I was in hog heaven!

So, thanks so much to those who made it, and look forward to meeting you in early March (date to be confirmed here)! Our next book choice is 'The Shadow of the Wind' by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

And if you are half thinking about coming along - DO SO! 
You'll meet some great people, and we'll natter about lots of different types of books. 

Also, there is the wonderful travelling suitcase library at the same event, so bring any books you want to swop, and feel free to take your pick of the books on offer! (blog linked on the top bar!)

how did WWOGB get 4/5 when the majority of us gave it a 7/10? surely 3/5?
Sorry. Grumpy this morning.

Just an error on my behalf, but have cleared all the scores so I can work them out properly. Was bit easier mental arithmatic when only three of us!

(just in general)
As we only use one good reads account for the book club, some of the books have differing scores depending on the person, but will only show one.
So if one of the other of us has torn a book a new spine, but it has a high rating here, chances are, the other one of us liked it!
