I’ve just been asked if I’d like to join my book group at work. I said yes partly because I think that it would be a great way to get to know people better (and they all seem really nice), and also because the choice this month is Neville Shute’s A Town Like Alice which I keep on hearing good things about. In fact it is on the reader’s choice of The 100 Best Novels List I blogged about earlier. I’m already a member of 2 other book groups, but as I read lots I’m hoping it won’t be too difficult to keep up. Well I guess I’ll get a feel for it and see how it goes. I’ll be popping into Copperfields at lunch to see if I can get a nice well thumbed copy of A Town Like Alice if not, I’ve seen one on eBay with a fabulous cover (left)!
Has anyone read A Town Like Alice or anything else by Neville Shute? How many book groups are you a member of? Are you oversubscribed or do you like the challenge and variety that being a member of a book group brings?
