First Read Dissection!

This month's book is Kafka On The Shore, by Haruki Murakami. Here's a link to the book:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kafka-Shore-Haruki-Murakami/dp/0099458322

The meetup has been arranged for one week after the original intended date, because I couldn't book the room until the 14th. So I hope you can make it.

If anyone has any queries or comments please feel free to get in touch :)

See you then!

Steph

    Hi. Sorry I couldn't make it last night. However, I'm keen to come along to the next one. Which book will you be reading for the next meeting? Is the Albert room the separate room that is on the left as you come in? I've just finished reading The Reader by Bernard Schlink. It's not bad, I'd give it 6 out of 10.

    For all newbies and those who haven't managed to start/finish the book don't worry!! It won't all be about the one text; there'll be plenty of other discussion and it will be good to get everyone's input for what to read next :)

    Hi all, I've only recently joined so am afraid i've not read the book.
    I'll hopefully come along to say hello if I can get there, and look forward to reading the next one and attending properly!

    So sorry for last min drop out - have managed to double book myself. Was so looking forward to it as well - assuming I'm not the only one who loves the book ;-)

    Hope you all have a great time and fingers crossed will be able to make it next time.

    Hi Steph, I am one of the organisers of the Big Bookend festival in Leeds in June. We are giving away free books tomorrow night and I wondered if your group would like us to pop in and give you some books. We will only be a few minutes. Thanks. Fiona

    Was good to meet everyone this week. Not absolutely sure I can make the may date, but I do have the book (it arrived yesterday) and will be reading, so hopefully will manage to get there!

    Hi Adrian- welcome to the group! I did hear about the other group, yes, after I had created this one on Meetup. By then we'd already had the first meet and I enjyed meeting everyone so decided to keep it going anyway! As long as people turn up and enjoy the group I'll keep making the dates; this group is in no way any kind of competition... I know the other group is already well established. I'll just see how this goes! :)

    Looking forward to meeting you.

    Sarah- I can't wait until the book arrives! By then I'll have finished Life of Pi (finally!) so can get cracking on Kafka!

    :)
