Book club at The Honor Oak Pub (Book choice = The Dry)


#1

@book_club

Thanks again to those who came to the last one. I’ve had three book suggestions for the next one, links and poll below.

Suggest we give it till midweek and whichever book has the most votes is the one we’ll read. I need to confirm with the venue but likely to be same as last time (a little later to start as people requested).

The Bricks that Built the Houses, Kate Tempest - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26073155-the-bricks-that-built-the-houses

The Dry, Jane Harper - https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27824826-the-dry?from_search=true

The girl who fell from the sky - Heidi Furrow - https://www.goodreads.com/search?utf8=✓&q=the+girl+who+fell+from+the+sky

Poll:

  • The bricks that built the houses
  • The Dry
  • The girl who fell from the sky

0 voters

Thanks all!

I’d sent a suggestion to the previous thread on Friday I think, Maggie Nelson The Argonauts; perhaps it got lost? No worries if the poll can’t be updated.

Hi Vika - sorry - not sure how I missed your post! I’ll add it to the list for April!

I wasn’t able to make the last one but will be at the next with bells on!

@book_club

Ok folks, I’ve closed the poll to give people time to get hold of and read the book. As it was pretty close, suggest we read The Dry at the next meetup on 7th March and then read The bricks that built the houses in April…

Thanks !

Just picked up my copy of the Dry from book shop and woman was v positive about it. Said it was for a book club and she agreed there was plenty in it for discussion. Can’t wait to start reading it on commute home now.

@natalieh101 you could put an affiliate link to Amazon for the chosen book each month, and earn some commission on sales to compensate you for your efforts organising the club :slight_smile:


#9

Ooh, I could… but then I’m not sure I can be bothered :joy:. I’ll check it out tho Chris!

@book_club Hi all - quick update to let you know the date has been put back a week to Wed 14 March @7:30pm (the pub couldn’t accommodate us on the 7th). Gives you an extra week to read the book :joy:

@ChrisBeach - sorry chris, no idea how to amend the calendar date???
