I’m so excited – my online book group idea has worked! Lovely people have signed up – well not signed, there’s nothing that formal, but have *indicated* enthusiasm and a willingness to read the chosen book – and so we’re all systems go. I think it’s going to be really fun.
Here’s the plan. We all go away and read the book – and I do admit that I think it’s extra cunning that our inauguration has been timed to coincide with the beginning of the school holidays so we’ll all have time, in theory at least, to read the odd page in between bouts of childcare – and then we’ll reconvene in a month’s time, and either just leave long comments with our thoughts, so that we can all reply to each other’s replies, or maybe even have guest posts featured here if anyone is moved to write a little review.
So, see you back here at the beginning of August to chat about the book – or sooner if you’re moved to tell us how you’re getting on, or if you really love/hate it.
What? Sorry? Oh, what is the book, I hear you ask? Well, in the end, I got most votes for Kate Atkinson’s latest, Started Early, Took My Dog. That suits me fine as I confess, I was missing Jackson Brodie’s chest after the end of the recent BBC series. I think he makes an appearance in this book. Well, at least I hope he does!
Here’s a link to Amazon if you want to buy the book, but I would check your local library first as, with any luck, they’ll have copies. So, happy reading everyone, and see you back here soon …
